Donald Duck, Charlie Brown star in classic Christmas tales
Fantagraphics is reprinting Christmas-themed classics from well-known comics creators this holiday season. Comics masters Carl Barks and Charles M. Schulz have holiday season reprint packages coming from the publisher this year.
As part of its series reprinting all of Carl Barks’ Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics, this year brings the reprint collection “Walt Disney’s Donald Duck: A Christmas for Shacktown.” The 32-page “Shacktown” story is the highlight of the book, as Donald Duck and his nephews seek donations to provide a Christmas celebration for the children of Shacktown, despite the near-indifference of rich Uncle Scrooge. “Shacktown” was originally published in 1951.
Other Barks adventures in this volume include the adventure stories “The Golden Helmet,” which finds the ducks on a quest off the coast of Labrador; and “The Gilded Man,” in which the group hunts a rare stamp in South America.
The book features an extensive series of notes and behind-the-scenes essays by “Duck” experts.
According to the Fantagraphics website, Carl Barks spent most of his life in Oregon. In 1987, he was one of the three inaugural inductees in the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame; Eisner and Jack Kirby were the others.
