    Carl Barks - "The Makings of a Fish Story" Gold Plate Edition Art Print, 100/100 (Another Rainbow, 1988). Scrooge and the boys dive deep to recover a lost treasure in this fantastic deluxe edition print. This is Barks' only underwater painting, based on the story from Uncle Scrooge #68, "Hall of the Mermaid Queen", and remains one of his most colorful creations. Scrooge better watch his back -- with deadly tentacles on one side, and a couple of drop-dead gorgeous mermaids (with a pet shark) on the other -- trouble is all around! It's excitement and adventure as only Carl Barks could bring to you, in a museum-quality, professionally matted and framed print that is sure to please any Duck Fan. The image area measures 16" x 20", and the overall size is 26.75" x 31.25", in Excellent condition. The print has been signed in pencil by Carl Barks, and there is a certificate of authenticity from Another Rainbow included.
