Michael Barrier has an interesting article on how Carl Barks worked & was paid by Western Printing & how it differed from other artists employed by them:

He was special.

Good time to put in another plug for the Fantagraphics Carl Barks reprints. Eight volumes out so far, I think, and they've been great, although it would still be wonderful to have the original comix, if only for context and memories of youth.

They are excellent and I give them to all the children I know -- and they LOVE them.

Michael Barrier has a short article on a new book of Carl Barks NON-Disney work. This includes Andy Panda, Porky Pig & Benny Burro.

All Barks fans should check it out:
