“In Carl Barks' Duckburg we see all the human frailties: Donald Duck's anger, Scrooge's ambition, the Beagle Boys' greed. Barks was a virtuoso artist and writer who combined breakneck action with detailed and subtle art. You will find a master at his peak in 'Lost in the Andes,' and your inner-child will thank you.”
— Eric Schultheis, Books Inc., Berkeley, CA

Description


In these Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics, beloved worldwide, there’s an exploding volcano, a dinosaur stampede, and a rocket race around the world!


In our title story, it’s Christmastime, and Donald, Uncle Scrooge, and the nephews are searching for rare black pearls on a remote island. But when their boat is sucked into an underwater cavern, they find themselves facing the fury of the island’s volcano! Then, to do battle against an invasive bug species, Donald and the boys head off to the uncharted jungles of the Amazon rainforest to bring back the bug’s natural enemy species. But a mystery foe, out to foil their mission, sends a crocodile stampede their way — which is only a warm-up to the stampede of dinosaurs they face when they get to The Forbidden Valley. No, it’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature! Also, when Gyro Gearloose invents a rocket to enter an “Around-the-World-in-80-Minutes” race, Donald agrees to pilot the ship — but he doesn’t know that his opponent is none other than Gladstone Gander — whose infernal luck never lets him lose! Carl Barks delivers another 170 pages of imaginative exuberance, rollicking high adventure, and all-around cartooning brilliance, in addition to insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.

About the Author


Carl Barks (1901-2000, b. Merrill, Oregon; d. Grants Pass, Oregon), one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Barks’s most famous character creation, Uncle Scrooge. Over the course of his career, he wrote and drew more than 500 comics stories totaling more than 6,000 pages, most anonymously. He achieved international acclaim only after he semi-retired in 1968. Among many other honors, Barks was one of the three initial inductees into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 1987. (The other two were Jack Kirby and Will Eisner.) In 1991, Barks became the first Disney comic book artist to be recognized as a “Disney Legend,” a special award created by Disney “to acknowledge and honor the many individuals whose imagination, talents, and dreams have created the Disney magic.” He has been similarly honored in many other countries around the world.
