One of our holiday favorites, Donald Duck: Lost in the Andes, is the featured topic of this weeks Gweek podcast brought to you by Boing Boing. If you haven't yet listened to this great podcast I highly recommend that you check it out. Gweek covers pretty much all that is going on in nerd mega-culture. Listen to this weeks episode here! Hot on the heels of popular Mickey Mouse hardcover comics collections, Fantagraphics puts forth a second Disney classic, Donald Duck:Lost in the Andes. While some readers may have been surprised by Mickey’s exploits in the early days, Donald is exactly as you remember and expect him to be: perpetually frustrated with a heart of gold. What is also not surprising is the level of skill behind the cartooning of Carl Barks, whose knack for expressive figures and attention to detail makes this collection an endlessly entertaining read. So well-loved were these stories, that none other than the great Steven Spielberg paid tribute to them in the famous scene of Indiana Jones versus the boulder in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Sure to please any fan of good-humored Golden Age comics.
