Walt Disney's Donald Duck "The Lost Peg Leg Mine": The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Vol. 18 (Hardcover)
December 2011 Indie Next List
“In Carl Barks' Duckburg we see all the human frailties: Donald Duck's anger, Scrooge's ambition, the Beagle Boys' greed. Barks was a virtuoso artist and writer who combined breakneck action with detailed and subtle art. You will find a master at his peak in 'Lost in the Andes,' and your inner-child will thank you.”
— Eric Schultheis, Books Inc., Berkeley, CA
In this collection of the internationally beloved comics, there’s a spooky lost mine, a runaway train, and a trip to the stars!
In our title story, Uncle Scrooge, Donald, and the nephews are hot on the trail of a pair of old saddlebags filled with gold nuggets. Then, Donald dons a suit of armor with a rubber sword for a costume party, but he embarrasses Daisy and becomes the object of scorn and ridicule — until a pair of lions break free! And when Gyro Gearloose invents a virtual reality headset, Donald and the boys find themselves menaced by fearsome creatures on other worlds. Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of imaginative exuberance, high-concept hijinks, and all-around cartooning brilliance.
A priceless part of our literary heritage.

I consider [Carl Barks’s comics] to be the best form of storytelling I’ve read.
