The third volume of Fantagraphics reprinting of Carl Barkss classic Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge work, like last springs Uncle Scrooge: Only a Poor Old Man, focuses on the early 1950s, universally considered one of Barkss very peak periods. Originally published in 1951, A Christmas for Shacktown is one of Barkss masterpieces: A rare 32-pager that stays within the confines of Duckburg, featuring a storyline in which the Duck family works hard to raise money to throw a Christmas party for the poor children of the citys slums (depicted by Barks with surprisingly Dickensian grittiness), and climaxing in one of the most memorable images Barks ever created, the terrifying bottomless pit that swallows up all of Scrooges money. But theres lots more gold to be found in this volume (literally), which features both the The Golden Helmet (a quest off the coast of Labrador for a relic that might grant the finder ownership of America, reducing more than one cast member to a state of Gollum-like covetousness) while The Gilded Man features a hunt for a rare stamp in South Americatwo more of Barkss thrilling full-length adventure stories. But thats less than half the volume! This volume also features ten of Barkss smart and funny 10-pagers, including a double whammy of yarns co-starring Donalds insufferable cousin (Gladstones Usual Very Good Year and Gladstones Terrible Secret), as well as another nine of Barkss rarely seen one-page Duck gags all painstakingly recolored to match the original coloring as exactly as possible, and supplemented with an extensive series of notes and behind-the-scenes essays by the foremost Duck experts in the world.
