Walt Disney's Donald Duck Christmas Treasury Gift Box Set by Carl Barks - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesDisneyCarl Barks 23 Oct 2013 6:32 PM

"I consider [Carl Barks's comics] to be the best form of storytelling I’ve ever read. My father always made sure to leave the comics page open in the newspaper in the morning so we kids could read them. I think that without my father, I wouldn’t have ended up on the career path that I’m on." – Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Disney Dads

"It’s probably one of the least sentimental Christmas stories around (and thus a favorite of many fans). It features an early example of Scrooge’s lack of charity, counterbalanced by his steadfast work ethic…I can’t say enough about how much I love these new Fantagraphics collections of this 'should always be in print' Carl Barks material." – Comics Worth Reading

"...master cartooning from 'The Good Duck Artist' in a nicely produced bookshelf- or backpack-ready hardcover edition... the Barks books are great comics for kids and adult fans of the medium." – School Library Journal

"At 32 pages, ['A Christmas for Shacktown'] is a sprawling epic (by Barks' standards, anyway) that hits those beautiful holiday themes of altruism and the spirit of giving. Although to be fair, it does get a little closer to cannibalism than most other Christmas comics." – Comics Alliance 

"For those who do want a surefire present for the comics buff in their lives." – The A.V. Club

"We’ll just grant [Carl Barks] permanent honorary status as the best of the best, like when John Larroquette removed himself from Emmy consideration after winning four straight for Night Court... [Walt Disney's Donald Duck: A Christmas for Shacktown] once again proves Barks to be one of the finest draftsmen and storytellers we’ve ever had." – Paste

Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Christmas on Bear Mountain by Carl Barks - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesDisneyCarl Barks 23 Oct 2013 6:12 PM

"One of comics' revered masters gets a fresh new reprinting worthy of his work and accessible to kids.... Despite the dark undertones, the comic expressions and dialogue is still laugh-out-loud funny. A wonderful project that should put Barks’s name in front of new generations of admirers." – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Even the silliest premise, when executed by an artist in perfect control of his gifts, can land with deftness and grace — that's something that strikes you again and again as you read Barks' work. And it's a lesson that won't get lost on any kid with whom you might choose to share it, which is convenient, as this collection makes a perfect introduction to one of the greatest all-ages comics artists of all time." – NPR - Monkey See

"Even now, Barks’ stories are clever and funny, as he leads the ducks into impossible situations and then gives them unexpected ways out. And they’re poignant in their own way, too.... What’s impressive about Fantagraphics’ [edition] is that it encourages both a fannish and an intellectual approach to the material." – The A.V. Club

"Barks, the artist, is a master cartoonist, drawing lively, expressive characters with a graceful sense of movement. His beautiful, detailed backgrounds plant the ducks in a fully realized world that adds weight to his storytelling.... But besides the entertaining plots, Barks’ appeal is in his characters. He gives his ducks many human frailties and while they usually try to do the right thing, they make mistakes, get angry, frustrated, and even fail. Fantagraphics Books... does its usual high quality work here as well.... For both newcomers to Barks' work and diehard fans, this is a book that any comic book reader would love..." – The Christian Science Monitor

"...the best collection series that any comic company is doing today! ... Funny, smart and just plain fun... Fantagraphics treats each and every panel on the page with care and detail." – Comics Bulletin

Scrooge McDuck is now such a fixture in the Disney universe that few remember Carl Barks had been writing and drawing Donald Duck stories for half a decade before he cooked up the miserly multiplujillionaire — for what he thought would be a one-time Christmas yarn involving Donald, the nephews, Scrooge in a bearskin, and (inevitably) a couple of real bears. "Christmas on Bear Mountain" is one of Barks's funniest holiday stories and a true landmark in comics history, and offers a fascinating look at a rough-edged, genuinely nasty character whom Barks would soon soften...

Scrooge aside, there’s plenty of other fun to be had in this volume. In "Volcano Valley" Donald and the Nephews end up stuck in Volcania, a south-of-the-border country inhabited by sombrero-wearing, siesta-addicted Volcanians. Other long-form adventures include the self-explanatory "Adventure Down Under," as well as one of Barks's most atmospheric thrillers, the West Indies-based "Ghost of the Grotto," which includes a lovely night-time sequence drawn in Barks's trademark silhouettes and a giant-octopus-vs.-hot-chili-peppers throwdown that climaxes in an explosive splash panel.

The book is rounded off with seven of Barks's hilarious 10-pagers, and as with the previous volumes, Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Christmas on Bear Mountain has been scanned from crisp vintage art and meticulously colored to match the original printing's warm, simple hues, and features abundant critical and historical notes penned by some of duckdom's finest experts.

Daily OCD Extras: Booklist Reviews
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under reviewsJasonGilbert HernandezFloyd GottfredsonDisneyDaily OCDBill GriffithAnders Nilsen 17 Oct 2013 4:30 PM
The last month's issue of Booklist reviewed recent releases by Fantagraphics creators, excerpted below: 
Lost Cat
"…maybe the most romantic mystery scenario his lean, animal-headed personae have ever performed...Delicious...heartwarming, too." –Ray Olson 

"The high-spirited, adventure-seeking mouse in these vintage strips-a far cry from today's bland, domesticated version-makes it clear why Mickey captivated Depression-era
America." –Gordon Flagg 

The Children of Palomar  
"Hernandez's absence from Palomar hasn't dimmed his ability to bring its beloved characters to vivid life, and his visual approach, a skillful blend of cartooning and illustration, remains as distinctive and acute as ever. Fans who have missed Palomar will relish the chance to return there once again." –Gordon Flagg, Booklist  

The Dingburg Diaries  
"…just as in our world, there's more to life than consumption, such as breakfast and odd proclamations ("From now on all eyeglasses will be rectangular") from enigmatic locations, or possibly people. You can never really be sure. More than a bit like the surrealism of real life, but everyone wears a muumuu." –Ray Olson, Booklist

The End  
"[The End is] as intelligently written and beautifully drawn-whether simply or intricately-as anything else this front-runner in his generation of comics artists has done. The last piece ends in blank-paneled silence, bringing to mind Wittgenstein's famous proposition, "What we cannot speak about, we must pass over in silence." –Ray Olson, Booklist
