Carl Barks (1901-2000) spent most of his life in Oregon. In 1987, he was one of the three inaugural inductees in the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame (along with Eisner and Jack Kirby). He's also a Disney Legend.
A perfect introduction to one of the greatest all-ages comics
artists of all time.
A priceless part of our literary heritage.--George Lucas
I consider [Carl Barks's comics] to be the best form of storytelling I've read.
