    Carl Barks Donald Duck Unpublished Panel Page Original Art (1955). Here's a rare treat for any fan of Carl Barks -- a page that was never published! Notes from Barks' own hand, written in the margin areas of both boards (Barks usually drew his pages in two halves, to make them easier to handle and mail) note this to be the third page to a story originally slated for Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #175, April, 1955; it was one of the few Barks stories Western Printing and Publishing rejected outright (the story was eventually published after Barks redrew one and a quarter pages; this is the rejected full page). The page involves Donald's attempt to regain bags of candy sold by Huey, Dewey, and Louie, as he searches for a missing ring presumed to be within a piece of the candy. Donald is featured in nearly every panel of this fun page. As a bonus, Carl Barks signed both halves, to long-time comic historian and über-fan, Tom Andrae. The image area of each half is approximately 16" x 11.5", and both pieces are in Excellent condition.
