    Description

    Four Color Comics #9 (Dell, 1942). An historic key, this issue contains the first Donald Duck story drawn by Carl Barks, considered by many to be the most important artist in the funny animal genre. Barks paintings of Donald Duck have sold for over $75,000, and those are for recreations! Thought of by many as the Action Comics #1 or Detective Comics #27 of the funny animal genre, this book is highly prized by collectors in many fields. This is a solid lower grade copy with a good presentation and is devoid of any of the large tears, creases, or tape commonly found in this grade. CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 GD 2.0 value = $643; FN 6.0 value = $1,929.
