    Four Color #9 Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold (Dell, 1942) CGC Apparent FN- Slight (A) Cream to off-white pages. No one did the Donald better than Carl Barks. Barks was the premier writer and artist on this beloved Walt Disney character for over 25 years. Here's his very first comic book work on the feature, a long adventure done in collaboration with writer Bob Karp and fellow artist Jack Hannah (who alternated pages with Barks). This issue kicked off a long-running series of memorable stories for the Dell Four Color line of comic book one-shots. Of special note to Barks fans is the fact that he signed the cover of this attractive copy, with the inscription "To David & Linda, Carl Barks." CGC notes, "Restoration includes: small amount of glue on spine of cover." Overstreet 2004 FN 6.0 value = $2,250.
