Carl Barks Comic Book Art

SURVIVED ARTWORK

The Original Scripts Part I


Carl Barks drew some 6.745 story pages for Western in the period 1943 - 1965. 

On the picture on the left side you can see some of these scripts and sketch drawings.

Take a look at the 3 webpage sections about "The Original Scripts".

Here you can find the original scripts for 4 Uncle Scrooge stories and the last Junior Woodchuck story.

In this section you are able to see the scripts for Uncle Scrooge # 58 and Uncle Scrooge # 63.


Comparison example between original script and original finished page 21 for Uncle Scrooge # 63.


This is an example of Carl Barks original script-page 21 from "House of Haunts" and the matching final original page. Western editors marked the page as number 22 because they should put in an advertising page in the comic. Therefore sometimes sold on later auctions the page numbers are a bit confusing. It is clearly that Carl sticked very closely to his scripts when he draw his stories. It was Carl`s wife, Garè who inked the texting and all of the bigger black areas. Notice that the last panel 8 is actually not missing. If you scroll down this section you will be able to find the panel 8 on script-page 21 which continue to script page 22. 


Original comic book page 21 ( numbered as page 22 by Western ) Carl sold the page on April, 1970 ). Until now we can only match survived original pages from the US-63 story to script pages from the same story. The other survived scripts for Uncle Scrooge stories has no "companion" of original stories to match.

The page # 21 ( 22 ) has found it`s home in Italy.
