Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge "The Lost Crown of Genghis Khan": The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 16 (Hardcover)
There are underground civilizations, exotic locales, and a race for pirate gold in the latest collection of world-famous Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics.
Worried about an earthquake that might swallow his money bin, Uncle Scrooge digs deep to secure his fortune — and discovers an underground civilization! Introducing the Terries and Fermies — the subterranean critters who can make earthquakes! Of special note, our presentation of this story restores two pages that were cut from its original publication. Then, Scrooge shanghais Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie to the Himalayas to help him recover “The Lost Crown of Genghis Kahn.” And when Scrooge is hypnotized to go back in time and learn the location of a pirate’s buried treasure, he thinks he’s got a clear shot — until he learns that Donald is also on the trail. And the race is on!
Carl Barks (1901-2000, b. Merrill, Oregon; d. Grants Pass, Oregon), one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Barks’s most famous character creation, Uncle Scrooge. Over the course of his career, he wrote and drew more than 500 comics stories totaling more than 6,000 pages, most anonymously. He achieved international acclaim only after he semi-retired in 1968. Among many other honors, Barks was one of the three initial inductees into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 1987. (The other two were Jack Kirby and Will Eisner.) In 1991, Barks became the first Disney comic book artist to be recognized as a “Disney Legend,” a special award created by Disney “to acknowledge and honor the many individuals whose imagination, talents, and dreams have created the Disney magic.” He has been similarly honored in many other countries around the world.
