Uncle Scrooge 402, Darkwing Duck 11, Super Dinosaur, and Your Family
Published on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 by

Another Carl Barks classic from Kaboom!’s duck archive. 70 years of Disney Comics is best celebrated by reviving classics. Carl Barks was a writing and drawing force back in the day. He laid the ground work for duck charactered comics which became the basis of Duck Tales. Disney keeps striking gold by going back to Carl Barks. This issue is no different.

Boom! Studios Kids, now Kaboom!, has been reprinting Carl Barks for a while. We don’t review them often because they are far from new. They may not be cutting edge, but they are still solid comics. As Free Comic Book Day approaches, families should be heading to their local comic book shop. When deciding what to buy along with your family’s free comics, be sure to check out the Uncle Scrooge titles. They are family friendly and fun for all ages.

Written & Drawn by Carl Barks
SC, 24pgs, FC, SRP: $3.99
COVER: Marco Rota
The 70th Anniversary Celebration of Walt Disney’s Comics rolls on as we present another timeless tale from the Disney comics vault with Scrooge McDuck starring in “The Fabulous Philosopher’s Stone!” For the first time in over 14 years, fans can experience Scrooge and the gang as they embark on a journey to find a fantastic, fabled stone capable of turning regular objects into gold—but not without a few side effects. Written and illustrated by the incomparable Carl Barks with a cover by fan favorite Marco Rota. The only side effect here is fun!

Uncle Scrooge #402 should still be hanging around on the shelves at your neighborhood comic book shops. Also check out the other duck tales on the comic shop shelves like Donald Duck #365 and Darkwing Duck #11. Each of these are great family friendly reads.

The celebration of 70 years of Walt Disney’s Comics continues in the pages of DONALD DUCK!

Next, we have “Donald Duck and the Pirates,” Jack Hannah’s never-before-reprinted 1947 sequel to Carl Barks’ “Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold!” Don’t miss Old Yellow Beak’s second treasure hunt in this issue, because you’ll have the THIRD story in the “Pirate Gold” trilogy next month!

Darkwing Duck is back, and back, and back and back some more as the city of St. Canard is under siege by an army of twisted Darkwings under the control of the original deranged Darkwing double, Negaduck, and his new partner in crime, the wicked witch Magica de Spell! How will our hero dispense justice when he’s public enemy number-one?! The Duck Knight has returned so hop aboard for danger and deadly doppelgangers in the epic “Crisis on Infinite Darkwings!”

Along with Super Dinosaur and other offerings, Free Comic Book Day is a great time to introduce comics to new readers of all ages. Join the discussion on the Pryde Forum.
