- Continuing with a great wallop of Christmas from the vast collection of Bill Peckmann, he sends along another Carl Barks gem. A Christmas for Shacktown glows off the page, and I’m pleased as punch to post it here. Bill’s introduction:
- What happens when you take Carl Barks at the height of his powers and combine him with that potent, powerful time of the year, Christmas? Why you get, ‘A Christmas for Shacktown’, that’s what!
The magazine cover
The original Dell Donald Duck ‘…Shacktown’ comic book
hit the newsstands for Christmas of 1951. The story we
just posted was from a Gladstone Comics reprinted and
re-colored some years later. This editorial essay by noted
Carl Barks historian, Geoffrey Blum, was also in the Gladstone issue.
Thanks again, Bill.
