Description

    Carl Barks - Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #308 Cover Original Art (Gold Key, 1966). Donald and Daisy find a new way to get around in this clever Carl Barks cover illustration. This was done near the time Barks was set to retire from regular comic art production; an enclosed letter from Carl to superfan Ron Goulart, dated May 5, 1966, indicated his future plans to continue occasional work on the Ducks, and concludes, "The rocking chair beckons. I stagger toward it in the gathering twilight. Farewell, farewell, my loyal fans. (I wonder what I'll use for an Uncle Scrooge story next January, when the larder is low and the glass is empty?) So goes life." The cover art is ink on bristol, with an image area of approximately 8" x 7". The logo and type stats are on overlays, and may be replacements. The art is in Excellent condition. A copy of the comic, plus a few photocopies and print-outs of the art are included.
