    Again, sorry for the confusion.
    No worries.

    Default carl barks library of walt disney's donald duck

    The first attempt at doing a comprehensive collection of Carl Barks stuff, was the large hardback collections by Another Rainbow under the "Carl Barks Library" name. These are all in black & white.

    Later, Gladstone did several series of color softcover albums (wouldn't call them trade paperbacks, like the collections most people are aware of today, these are thinner, more in the line of european style comic albums). I think these were also under the rubric of the "Carl Barks Library". There was a series on Donald Duck Adventures, another on Uncle Scrooge Adventures, and another on Walt Disney Comics & Stories (shorter stuff), with shorter series on Gyro Gearloose and some other stuff. They also did a short series (4-5 albums) of Don Rosa's early Duck work.


    Since then, am not aware of any trying to do any comprehensive reprint series in the US. Gemstone, before they went under, was about to embark on a series of hardback books reprinting all of Don Rosa's duck work.

    I would think that with all the other classic comic book and comic strip reprints out there that someone would want to do a new Barks &/or Rosa collection.

    I couldn't afford the AR series when it came out, and could barely afford the later stuff (I think I got the DDA and most of the WDCS and short series, but not the USA stuff). So I would be open to a new reprint series.


    Eeeh... Is it that priceless? I'm trying to quit my habit on comics and have the first set of AR.

    WOAH.

    I wonder if they're seriously going to reprint all the WDC&S stories, though. That's going to make for a lot of $25 volumes full of largely run-of-the-mill 10 page gag stories. There were some classics in that run, to be sure, but it's not going to garner sales the way his other stuff will.


    I wish this set had been announced six years ago when I first started buying up vintage Barks issues for a small fortune. The collection is nearly complete outside of the WDC&S issues now, so I really don't need these volumes anymore

    Even though I probably have most of these stories in one place or another, I absolutely cannot pass up this good of a deal. It's in hardback, in color, and a reasonable price too.

    And shaxper, no offense, but I really believe "gag stories" is a misnomer for the WDC&S material. They certainly are not (and could not) be as complex tales as the longer stories, but they are definitely not what I think of when I hear the phrase "gag stories."

    Wuh--- not Boom!? not even Marvel? But Fantagraphics? Whodathunkit?

    I. Must. Have. Them.

    Two per year is a fantastic frequency. (That said, for me to have all 30 volumes, that means I'll be 56 when they've finished...)

    If you read further down in the article they're planning to reprint all of Barks' Duck work. They're going about it in an interesting way though, starting with 1948 and "Lost in the Andes." I like the move to start with some of the best stuff and then fill in later on after people are hooked.

    These will certainly be on my "to-buy" list.

    You're lucky; I'll be 75.

    But maybe that will be incentive for me to, uh, not die.

    Awesome news.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

    And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives.

    It probably won't feel like the prime of your life when you get there

    This is the collection of classic material I have been waiting for. For some people it's Popeye, Peanuts or Dick Tracy. For me, it's these Carl Barks stories.

    Whoa. Over the past year I've been hearing of this guy and his excellent work, but frustrated that his stuff was only avaliable in a billion different reprints with most out of print, ect.

    Then this happens!

    Clearly, I made this happen. I'm magic.

    It would be very hard to find full collections mow but E-bay or iOffer are always there. ALL og Bark's tales are covered in 3 superb collections.

    1. There is a full CARL BARKS LIBRARY of Donald Duck 10-pagers from Walt Disney's Comics & Stories series. 25 volumes of 5 stores each in chronological order from Galdstone and in high-quality large format with colour pictures.

    2. There is a similar CARL BARKS UNCLE SCROOGE collection, all the long and most short adventures in a collection of 58 colour voulmes of the same quality, also in chonological order from Gladstone.

    3. I am also sure that there is a similar collection for all Carl Barks' Doanld Duck long stories but I cannot recall the title.
