From 1942 until his retirement in 1966, Carl Barks was the most important writer and artist of Donald Duck and related comic books, including Uncle Scrooge, as well as the creator of Uncle Scrooge and many of the best-loved characters in the Duck comic books. So beloved and important was Carl Barks' work that from 1983 to 1990, Another Rainbow Publishing, founded by Bruce Hamilton, published The Carl Barks Library in 30 deluxe hardcover volumes reprinting all of Barks' Disney comic book work and as much other Disney related drawings and art Barks was involved with as possible. In addition to comic book work, it includes paintings, storyboard and animation drawings, model sheets, and drawings for fans, among other things. The Complete Carl Barks Index has over 29,000 lines of data in the Index. The index, which was always intended to cover all of Barks' Disney comics as published in the original comic books and as reprinted, or in some cases first printed, in The Carl Barks Library, was also expanded to include Barks' non-Disney comics and also, later, Disney comics not included in The Carl Barks Library, and not even published until after The Carl Barks Library had been completed. There is even Barks comic book work first published after Barks' death, including work that has not yet been published in the USA or even in English. This has led to some additional material being added to the index as late as 2016. All of that is included in the Index. Information has also been included to make the Index useful even with other reprints in addition to the original comic books and the The Carl Barks Library. Each data entry includes reference to the original USA comic book publications with comic book title, issue, and story page numbers. It also includes reference to The Carl Barks Library publication including set, volume, and page reference, as well as submission dates, based on Carl Barks' personal work records. Just about any question you might ask about Carl Barks' work, if you can think of it, and it is included in Barks' opus, you can probably find it and all references to it. Want to find every depiction of a cigarette in Barks' comics or a listing of every half page display panel and other large sized panels? It's there. What really was the first appearance of the money bin or its precursors, or the worry room, or Gladstone's luck, every appearance of the Beagle Boys, all incarnations of Barks' pig villain characters, what stories have a camel in them, what Barney Bear and Benny Burro story was rewritten as an Uncle Scrooge story, what other Barks stories were rewritten years or decades later? Where does that huge panel of a money dam bursting with gazillions of dollars flowing forth appear? It's all there in the Index. There are also a dozen chapters of introduction, historical, and background material, topics of special interest, and a Foreword by Michael Barrier.

Other than 2 black and white illustrations, there are no other illustrations in the book. As a consequence, print-on-demand copies cost $18 extra to print each book in color. Such are the economics of print-on-demand publication. They are offered for sale at an introductory price $15 higher than the regular edition as a courtesy to those who might be interested in having the illustrations in color. And I earn less money on each sale in order to keep the introductory price below $50. The main point of interest in the book in either edition is, I believe, the Index to the work of Carl Barks, but if anyone wants to pay $15 extra for a few pages of color illustrations, it is currently available as an option.

The Carl Barks Index Second Edition is a comprehensive index and concordance of Carl Barks' Disney comic book work created from late 1946 to early 1958 as published by Fantagraphics Books in 15 volumes so far. It updates an earlier edition that covered only the first 10 books in the Fantagraphics series, The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library. From 1942 until his retirement in 1966, Carl Barks was the most important writer and artist of Donald Duck and related comic books, including Uncle Scrooge, as well as the creator of Uncle Scrooge and many of the best-loved characters in the Duck comic books. Fantagraphics Books is now about halfway through a 15+ year project reprinting that work in an acclaimed series of mass market hardcover books in color. These books include what is generally considered to be the high point in creativity and quality of writing and drawing in Barks' career as a comic book writer and artist plus many excellent stories before and after. *******With almost 9500 data entries in the index, each entry includes book volume and page numbers for the Fantagraphics book reprinting as well as references to all of the original USA comic book first publications with comic book title, issue, and story page numbers, plus the date of creation based on Carl Barks' personal work records.

Ten stories in this book, mostly unavailable since their original printings in comic books, are collected here together for the first time, along with a few other gems. Also included are several virtually unknown works by Barks which have not previously been collected anywhere. Four of the stories in this book appear in restored versions which are intended to showcase them as Barks originally intended for them to be seen. All of the stories are sourced from high quality masters except for three for which there are no known surviving masters. As collected in this book, newly colored and sourced from original masters, the stories look much better in this book than in previous printings. The 26 Barney Bear and Benny Burro stories, the bulk of Barks' non-Disney work, are in print in the USA in another book, The Carl Barks Big Book of Barney Bear; however, unfortunately, original masters were not used for their reproduction. The Unavailable Carl Barks also includes a comprehensive index to all of Carl Barks' non-Disney comics, and other introductory, historical, and background articles, totaling about 40 pages. Every story that Carl Barks wrote or drew featuring Disney characters during his career as a comic book creator has been reprinted, often many times, in comic books and albums and books. The Disney work is the most important of Barks' work, but Barks also wrote and/or drew 36 other comic book stories featuring non-Disney characters between 1943 and 1953; these have been less-well served in reprinting and are much less well-known. They are generally comparable in quality to the average of the Donald Duck work he was doing at the same time. A few of them are quite creative and delightful, and stand well with the best short story work he was doing at the time. Most of them have been out-of-print since their publication decades ago in comic books. This book is intended to remedy that situation.

The Carl Barks Index: A Concordance of the Comics of Carl Barks as published inFantagraphics Books Complete Carl Barks Disney Library volumes 5-14 and the original Comic Booksby Kim WestonThis book is a comprehensive index and concordance of Carl Barks' prime period Disney comics as published by Fantagraphics. From 1942 until his retirement in 1966, Carl Barks was the most important writer and artist of Donald Duck and related comic books including Uncle Scrooge, as well as the creator of Uncle Scrooge and many of the best-loved characters in the Duck comic books. Fantagraphics Books is now 5 years into a 15 year project reprinting that work in an acclaimed series of mass market hardback books in color.

This period is probably the high point in creativity and quality of writing and drawing in Barks' career as a comic book writer and artist and includes a majority of Barks very best work.With over 6,000 lines of data in the Index, each data entry includes book title and page numbers for the Fantagraphics Book printings as well as references to all of the original USA comic book first publications with comic book title, issue, and story page numbers.

Original proofs of the stories and covers written and drawn by Carl Barks exist and are used worldwide in reproducing his work. But for a few stories, there are no existing proofs, and the only way they can be reprinted is by making new masters of the work from printed comic books. Given the poor quality of the printing process used for the old 10 cent comic books, stories reprinted that way often don't look very good when compared to stories with modern printing from original proofs. This book reproduces some of my attempts to get a better quality image for stories for which there are no known original proofs. Barks' only Porky Pig story, "Porky of the Mounties", now has been restored with new black line art plates and completely recolored. Barks' Andy Panda story and the Barks written Droopy story "Serum to Nome" have also been restored with new black line art plates, which help the art stand out from the coloring. The coloring on these two stories, while not completely new, has been cleaned up and the color registration has been greatly improved. This allows the art to be seen more clearly and better appreciated.

Ten stories by Carl Barks in this book, mostly unavailable since their original printings in comic books, are collected here together for the first time. The stories include 3 early Benny Burro stories, 2 early Droopy stories (actually titled Happy Hound), and an Andy Panda story from 1943, a 24 page Porky Pig story from 1944, and 3 more Droopy stories from 1952 and 1953. Also included are 2 Barney Bear and Benny Burro stories from 1945. All of the stories are sourced from high quality masters except for three for which there are no known surviving masters: Andy Panda, Porky Pig, and one of the 1953 Droopy stories. As collected in this book, newly colored and sourced from original masters, the stories look much better in this book than in previous printings. In this edition, the Porky Pig story has been newly restored with new black line plates and completely recolored. It looks much better than the original printing or any subsequent reprints. The Andy Panda and 1953 Droopy story also have been restored with new black line plates and their color has been cleaned up and partially recolored; this also represents a significant improvement over an earlier edition of this book. The 2 Happy Hound stories were altered from the way Barks drew them before their original publication and appear in restored versions which are intended to showcase them as Barks originally intended for them to be seen. The same is true for the 2 Barney Bear and Benny Burro stories; indeed, that is the reason for their inclusion here, despite being reprinted in another book recently. All 26 Barney Bear and Benny Burro stories, the bulk of Barks' non-Disney work, are in print in the USA in another book, The Carl Barks Big Book of Barney Bear; unfortunately original masters were not used for their reproduction.*******Every story that Carl Barks wrote or drew featuring Disney characters during his career as a comic book creator has been reprinted, often many times, in comic books and albums, and books.

A few of them are quite creative and delightful, and stand well with the best short story work he was doing at the time. Most of them have been out-of-print since their publication decades ago in comic books. This book is intended to remedy that situation.*******When combined with Craig Yoe and IDW's The Carl Barks Big Book of Barney Bear, The Unavailable Carl Barks (in color) brings back into print all of the non-Disney comic book stories written and/or drawn by Carl Barks. Owners of the earlier edition of The Unavailable Carl Barks (in color) may also be interested in Restoring Carl Barks, a short book which collects only the same newly restored versions of the Porky Pig, Andy Panda, and 1953 Droopy story that appear in this revised edition.

Short-listed for the 2007 CBA Libris Awards for Book Design of the Year What do Superman, Prince Valiant, Cerebus the Aardvark, and Spawn have in common? Their creators Joe Shuster, Harold Foster, Dave Sim, and Todd McFarlane are Canadians. And while many of the cutting-edge talents of contemporary comix and graphic novels are also from Canada artists such as Chester Brown, Seth, Dave Cooper, and Julie Doucet far too few Canadians realize their country had a remarkable involvement with the "funnies" long before. Invaders from the North profiles past and present comic geniuses, sheds light on unjustly neglected chapters in Canadas pop history, and demonstrates how this nation has vaulted to the forefront of international comic art, successfully challenging the long-established boundaries between high and low culture. Generously illustrated with black-and-white and colour comic covers and panels, Invaders from the North serves up a cheeky, brash cavalcade of flamboyant and outrageous personalities and characters that graphically attest to Canadas verve and invention in the world of visual storytelling.

The Blighted Eye is the most copious, the most diverse, and the most lavish compilation of original comic art ever published ― all from the mind-boggling collection of Glenn Bray. Bray was an enthusiast of marginal or outsider American pop culture when he started to collect original comic art in 1965 ― a time when very few people, including the artists themselves, truly valued the original art. Bray has, over the last nearly 50 years, amassed the most eclectic collection of original comic art in private hands. The book features work by a pantheon of cartooning masters, including Charles Addams, Carl Barks, Charles Burns, Al Capp, Dan Clowes, Jack Cole, R. Crumb, Jack Davis, Kim Deitch, Will Elder, Al Feldstein, Virgil Finlay, Drew Friedman, Chester Gould, Justin Green, Rick Griffin, Bill Griffith, Matt Groening, George Grosz, V.T. Hamlin, Jaime Hernandez, George Herriman, Al Hirshfeld, Graham Ingels, Bernard Krigstein, Harvey Kurtzman, Gary Panter, Virgil Partch, Savage Pencil, Peter Pontiac, Charles Rodrigues, Spain Rodriguez, Charles Schulz, Gilbert Shelton, Joost Swarte, Stanislav Szukalski, Irving Tripp, Chris Ware, S. Clay Wilson, Basil Wolverton, Wallace Wood, Jim Woodring, Art Young, and ― it should go without saying ― many more.

An immediate perennial, documenting the critical rise of the graphic novel. Conventional wisdom states that cartooning and graphic novels exist in a golden age of creativity, popularity, and critical acceptance. But why? Today, the signal is stronger than ever, but so is the noise. New York Times, Vanity Fair, and Bookforum critic Ben Schwartz assembles the greatest lineup of comics critics the world has yet seen to testify on behalf of this increasingly vital medium. The Best American Comics Writing is the first attempt to collate the best criticism to date of the graphic novel boom in a way that contextualizes and codifies one of the most important literary movements of the last 60 years. This collection begins in 2000, the game changing year that Pantheon released the graphic novels Jimmy Corrigan and David Boring. Originally serialized as “alternative” comics, they went on to confirm the critical and commercial viability of graphic literature. Via its various authors, this collection functions as a valuable readers’ guide for fans, academics, and librarians, tracing the current comics renaissance from its beginnings and creative growth to the cutting edge of today’s artists. This volume includes Daniel Clowes (Ghost World) in conversation with novelist Jonathan Lethem (Fortress of Solitude), Chris Ware, Jonathan Franzen (The Corrections), John Hodgman (The Daily Show, The Areas of My Expertise, The New York Times Book Review), David Hajdu (The 10-Cent Plague), Douglas Wolk (Publishers Weekly, author of the Eisner award-winning Reading Comics), Frank Miller (Sin City and The Spirit film director) in conversation with Will Eisner (The Spirit’s creator), Gerard Jones’ (Men of Tomorrow), Brian Doherty (author Radicals of Capitalism, This is Burning Man) and critics Ken Parille (Comic Art), Jeet Heer (The National Post), R.C. Harvey (biographer of Milton Caniff), and Donald Phelps (author of the landmark book of comics criticism,Reading the Funnies). Best American Comics Writing also features a cover by nationally known satirist Drew Friedman (The New York Observer, Old Jewish Comedians) in which Friedman asks, “tongue-in-cheek,” if cartoonists are the new literati, what must their critics look like?

Throughout its long and colorful history, Walt Disney Studios has produced scores of films designed to educate moviegoers as well as entertain them. These productions range from the True-Life Adventures nature documentaries and such depictions of cutting-edge technology as Man in Space and Our Friend the Atom, to wartime propaganda shorts (Education for Death), public-health films (VD Attack Plan) and coverage of exotic cultures (The Ama Girls, Blue Men of Morocco). Even Disney’s dramatic recreations of historical events (Ten Who Dared, Invincible) have had their share of educational value. Each of the essays in this volume focuses on a different type of Disney “edutainment” film. Together they provide the first comprehensive look at Walt Disney’s ongoing mission to inform and enlighten his worldwide audience.
