Barks - Too Much Help

Four Color #1150 - December 1960
W OS 1150-04

This 4-page Barks illustrated story is from a Daisy Duck spotlight issue of FOUR COLOUR, and is possibly written by Vic Lockman. It has Daisy assuming from tear-marks on a letter that Grandma Duck's farm is in trouble, and brings Gladstone along on a visit to work his trademark luck.

Only a fair story overall, Barks peak period was just past at this point, but I do really like this one panel a lot, with Grandma Duck throwing a flying tackle at Gladstone. Sheer poetry in motion.
