Upcoming Stuff of Interest - Barks' Greatest DuckTales v2


by Carl Barks

Accompanying the release of Disney's DuckTales TV series on DVD, Gemstone collects the vintage Carl Barks Scrooge adventures that DuckTales adapted to animation! This second volume wraps "The Giant Robot Robbers," "The Golden Fleecing," "The Unsafe Safe" and more with a previously unpublished Barks cover design, inked by Andrew Pepoy. Scholarly texts by Chris Barat and Joe Torcivia ground the stories and TV show in Disney history.
Softcover, 7x10, 144pgs, Full Colour $10.95
MAY06 3151 Gemstone

Companion piece to the first volume, solicited a few months back, a good selection of Barks' adventure oriented stories. Highly recommended, especially if you've never read Barks and wonder what all the fuss is about. I'm not sure that trim-size is right, the first was solicited as a digest sized 5x7, not a full size 7x10. These books would be an incredible bargain if they are indeed 7x10 for $11.
