    Description

    Four Color #9 Donald Duck (Dell, 1942) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. Featuring "Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold", this was Carl Barks' very first Donald Duck story, and that's why this is one of the most highly prized comics of the second Four Color series' 1,300-plus issue run! Barks drew the cover as well as the story. Working with writer Bob Carp and fellow Disney Studio artist Jack Hannah (who drew every other page in a closely similar style), Barks initially saw this book as an opportunity to pick up a few extra bucks between cartoon scripts. Before long, he left the Disney studio behind and began devoting his full time to writing and drawing the adventures of Donald and his feathered kin. He would continue for more than twenty years. A solid copy that appears to have been lovingly read and well kept! Overstreet 2017 FN 6.0 value = $3,000; VF 8.0 value = $7,600. CGC census 2/18: 4 in 7.0, 24 higher.
