DescriptionCarl Barks - Uncle Scrooge "X-Ray Scrooge" Pin Up Original Art (Another Rainbow, 1979). Everyone's favorite rich Duck Uncle is pictured here in crisp black and white by that master Good Duck artist, Carl Barks. This piece was drawn by Barks on 1-10-79, and was published in Volume 1 of the Carl Barks Library by Another Rainbow; it's become known as "X-Ray Scrooge" because the blacks in Scrooge's hat weren't filled in, revealing pencil lines that make it look like a wire frame. Notes on the back of the piece point out that Barks himself chose the attractive double matting used for this page. It's a lovely inked illustration, and a bit of a rarity; Barks did very little inking after his retirement from regular comic book work in the 1960s. The piece measures approximately 6.5" x 9", and is in Excellent condition.
