Happy Halloween

Halloween in Duckburg by Carl Barks

This oil painting by Carl Barks is titled ‘Halloween in Duckburg’. The 1973 painting is based on the cover of Donald Duck 26, which featured Barks’ story ‘Trick or Treat’ in which Huey, Dewey & Louie team up with a real witch named Hazel to get treats from Donald on Halloween.

The above picture is a scan from the back of issue 3 from 1992 of Dutch Donald Duck Extra, which for a few years printed Barks’ paintings on the back of each issue.

Change coming to Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories

Posted by Arthur in Boom! Studios, News, United States

Starting January 2011, BOOM! Studios is changing the format of some of their Disney comics. Earlier this week the publisher announced that ‘classics are back’. We’ve now learned what’s inside their January line-up and it’s good news for fans of traditional Disney comics.

For the past year we’ve been seeing mostly long Italian adventure stories in BOOM!’s Disney comics, such as Ultraheroes and Wizards of Mickey. It now looks like BOOM! is returning some of their titles to a more traditional format, with several short stories in each issue, featuring both classic reprints and new stories that haven’t been seen in the United States yet.
