Nemo #7: Carl Barks part 1 and Donald Duck

"Nemo: the Classic Comics Library" issue #7 from 1984 celebrated their first anniversary with a bang!

Carl Barks was finally garnering recognition for all his decades of work on Walt Disney comic books, most notably the line of Duck comics. Considered "The Good Duck Man", Carl added to the mythos with his creation of such characters as Uncle Scrooge.

Being that 1984 was also the 50th anniversary of "Donald Duck", "Nemo" kicked into full swing and even sprang for a few pages in glorious 4-Color!

Here's a glimpse at the Duck-laden issue... editorial by Richard Marschall on the excitement of a meeting of minds. Carl Barks and "Mickey Mouse" comics' Floyd Gottfredson.

Here's the first 4 articles in Nemo's Carl Barks Tribute....enjoy!

Beginning with a conversation between Barks and Gottfredson.

...more coming tomorrow with some of Barks' original Duck oil paintings.

Talk to you soon.
