Bestseller Books Donald and Mickey: The Walt Disney's Comics and Stories 75th Anniversary Collection Published in 2016, this retrospective marks the 75th anniversary of “The Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories” (don’t blame me for that grammatical choice). The version provided for my Kindle Fire was excellent in terms of colors and print. There is ample documentation for each “comic” but little commentary or historical context. With the help of noted expert, Ron Goulart, I will try to provide you with some of that.Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories was the successor to Disney’s first effort, Mickey Mouse Magazine….basically a monthly packaging of what ran in the daily newspapers. MM Magazine was aimed at a very young audience and there was some carryover into Comics and Stories but there was a deliberate effort to aim for a bit older audience. It began in 1940 and has continued until present times (hence the 75th anniversary). It’s longevity was, to my mind, due to the employment, early on, of two individuals, Carl Barks and Paul Murry (and to a lesser extent the famous Walt Kelly). They were not initially given credit but Murry provided a more bright and adventurous Mickey Mouse (and his nemesis, Black Pete) and Barks did the same for the ducks.Yes, I said “ducks,” because Barks helped change the “cunning, vindictive and generally pugnacious” Donald into something Barks describes as “…more sympathethic….He was sometimes a villain, and he was often a real good guy and at all times he was just a blundering person like the average human being.” Like Murry for Mickey, Barks had Donald going on adventures. By 1947, he had introduced penurious, paranoid Uncle Scrooge (the world’s richest duck) and his nemeses, The Beagle Boys. Scrooge for all his avarice was fond of Donald and his nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. The nephews eventually were to achieve prominence in the TV show “Duck Tales.”This edition gives credit to Barks, Murray and everyone else whose work ended up in this “Anniversary Edition.” Because its scope is so broad, it can hardly deliver much of its best creators work. Instead we get a lot of inanity including L’l Bad Wolf, Gremlin Gus, Chip ‘n Dale, etc. But there is enough of Murry’s excellent drawing and adventure stories and Bark’s amazing success in retelling history for younger readers. My three “plus” star rating for this is not a reflection of any shortcomings in production values. I just wanted to have more of the “good stuff.”

Carl Barks March 27, 1901 August 25, 2000 was an American Disney Studio illustrator and comic book creator, who invented Duckburg and many of its inhabitants, such as Scrooge McDuck 1947 , Gladstone Gander 1948 , the Beagle Boys 1951 , The Junior Woodchucks 1951 , Gyro Gearloose 1952 , Cornelius Coot 1952 , Flintheart Glomgold 1956 , John D Rockerduck 1961 and Magica De Spell 1961 The quality of his scripts and drawings earned him the nicknames The Duck Man and The Good Duck Artist People who work for Disney generally do so in relative anonymity the stories only carry Walt Disney s name and sometimes a short identification number Prior to 1960, the creator of these stories remained a mystery to his readers However, many readers recognized Barks work and drawing style, and began to call him the Good Duck Artist, a label which stuck even after his true identity was discovered by John and Bill Spicer in 1959 After Barks received a 1960 visit from Bill and John Spicer and Ron Leonard, he was no longer anonymous, as his name soon became known to his readers.Writer artist Will Eisner called him the Hans Christian Andersen of comic books In 1987, Barks was one of the three inaugural inductees of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame From
