    Description

    Carl Barks - World War II Preliminary Gag Sketches Group (Walt Disney, 1940-41). The entire Walt Disney Studio went into overtime production during World War II. Shorts, feature films, insignia artwork, propaganda shorts, training films, bond raising films, pamphlets, posters, and more were created for the war effort. This is a rare set of 13 pages of gag ideas, with many being WWII-referenced gags, created by Mr. Carl Barks (1901 - 2000). Two of the pages are dated, as 6/17/40 and 3/31/41. There are thirteen pages total, with rough drafts of gags on twelve of them. The art is in graphite on 3-hole notebook paper measuring 5.5" x 8.5". The art comes with a Letter of Authenticity from Jerry Weist. Fascinating, unseen art from the hand of Carl Barks, before he became known as the Good Duck Artist! Minor handling. Very Good condition.
