A list of comics by Carl Barks, with some notes.

 

Preamble

There is a definite development in Barks' work over time, particularly in the early days.

 

But it is not so much a development of the characters, as would indicate a single story arc, canon or universe. Rather it is Barks' own approach, even his skill level, that develops, again particularly in the first few years.

 

There is also collaboration of course. It is tempting to guess that Barks is at his best when he is both writer and illustrator, but that is simply not the case in the early work.

 

The classics start very early. By 1946, the style of the best stories has changed radically from the first few. The Terror of the River shows all the best features of Barks at his masterful best. But if we go by the order of publication there is no consistency.

 

The List

Dates are first publication date.

 

A Hole in One

1938, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

The Sheriff Goes Crabing

1938, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

Anything to Oblige

1938, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

Mr. Woodpecker Goes Picketing

1938, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

Out of the Frying Pant

1938, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

There's One Born Every Minute

1938, plot only by Barks, 3 panel newspaper strip

Donald's Golf Game

1938, plot only by Barks, 2 newspaper strips, a 4 panel then a 5 panel

Just a Heel!

1938, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

Into the Frying Pan

1939, plot only by Barks, 4 panel newspaper strip

A Heavy Fall of Snow!

1939, plot only by Barks, 5 panel newspaper strip

Donald Duck

1939, plot only by Barks, 4 panel newspaper strip

Pluto Saves the Ship

1942, Barks one of three writers. a longish story with Pluto the only main character.

Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold

1942. Only the art pages 1,2,5,12-40 is by Barks. Stars Donald and his nephews.

The Victory Garden

April 1943, original author unknown, rewritten and drawn by Barks, coloured by Susan Daigle-Leach.

Barks drawing is already quite awesome. Perhaps not as polished as in some later ones, with some panels rather bare for no obvious effect, but already brilliant. 

The Rabbit's Foot

May 1943, the very next issue of Walt Disney Comics and Stories to The Victory Garden in fact, and written and drawn by Barks. Coloured by Gary Leach.

The story is not up to the standard of Barks' later work. The richness of the characters is just not there, they lack dimension.

Even the art is not up to the standard of the previous story. Was it perhaps written and drawn earlier, and the stories published out of sequence? We may never know. 

Flashes of brilliance, but overall not his best by a long way.

Lifeguard Daze

June 1943, written and drawn by Barks. Coloured by Susan Daigle-Leach.

Quite simply one of the worst. A completely different approach in both story and drawing.   

Good Deeds

July 1943, written and drawn by Barks. Coloured by Susan Daigle-Leach.

Getting better... but still a pale shadow of what was to follow.

The Limber W Guest Ranch

July 1943, written and drawn by Barks. Coloured by Susan Daigle-Leach.

Forgettable. Story and art both patchy. Flashes of brilliance, but... 

The Mummy's Ring

The Hard Loser

Too Many Pets

1943, Drawn by Barks and written with one other.

The Mighty Trapder

September 1943.

A few nice panels and story twists, but not the best overall.

Good Neighbors

November 1943. written and drawn by Barks.

Not the best of the Neighbour Jones stories.

Salesman Donald

December 1943.

An early example of Donald as the conquering hero. But far from the best of them

Snow Fun

January 1944.

Flashes of brilliance but some very weak points both in story and art.

The Duck in the Iron Pants

December 1943, written and drawn by Barks.

Simply terrible, both the drawing and the story.

The Firebug

1946, in Donald Duck Four Color #108.

A classic. The last two panels are not by Barks, and it shows, but they don't spoil the story.

Seals Are So Smart!

1946, in Donald Duck Four Color #108.

Blatantly not up to the standard of his other work in that same issue!
