ITEM#: 15248862Scrooge McDuck is now such a fixture in the Disney universe that few remember Carl Barks had been writing and drawing Donald Duck stories for half a decade before he cooked up the miserly multiplujillionaire for what he thought would be a one-time Christmas yarn involving Donald, the nephews, Scrooge in a bearskin, and (inevitably) a couple of real bears. Christmas on Bear Mountain is one of Barkss funniest holiday stories and a true landmark in comics history, and offers a fascinating look at a rough-edged, genuinely nasty character whom Barks would soon soften... Scrooge aside, theres plenty of fun to be had in this volume. In Volcano Valley Donald and the Nephews end up stuck in Volcania, a south-of-the-border country inhabited by sombrero-wearing, siesta-addicted Volcanians. Other long-form adventures include the self-explanatory Adventure Down Under, as well as one of Barkss most atmospheric thrillers, the West Indies-based Ghost of the Grotto, which includes a lovely night-time sequence drawn in Barkss trademark silhouettes and a giantoctopus- vs.-hot-chili-peppers throwdown that climaxes in an explosive splash panel. The book is rounded off with seven of Barkss hilarious 10-pagers, and as with the previous volumes, Walt Disneys Donald Duck: Christmas on Bear Mountain has been scanned from crisp vintage art and meticulously colored to match the original printings warm, simple hues, and features abundant critical and historical notes penned by some of duckdoms finest experts. We are also offering a boxed set that combines the newWalt Disneys Donald Duck: Christmas on Bear Mountain with the 2012 release Walt Disneys Donald Duck: A Christmas for Shacktown for a great Christmas-themed box set (see following page).
