Beautiful hardcover offers first ever color collection

Carl Bark's Big Book of Barney BearNow available in stores, THE BIG BOOK OF CARL BARKS’ BARNEY BEAR collects for the first time in color and English all the Barney Bear and Benny Burro team-up stories by comics' genius Carl Barks.

Carl Barks tops the list of greatest comic book artists of many devoted fans around the world. While adventures of Barks’ Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck are known and loved, the fabulous stories of the animation film stars Barney Bear and Benny Burro have been often overlooked. These wonderful full-color fantasy and fun stories as only Barks could write and draw them have remained hidden in rare Golden-Age comics only Scrooge McDuck could afford, until now.

At last, THE BIG BOOK OF CARL BARKS’ BARNEY BEAR offers a deluxe, hardcover archiving of this warm and hilarious , “lost” alternate world. And the book has a cover and an introduction by Jeff Smith of Bone fame, himself a big Barks fan.

"These stories are pure Barks – superbly drawn, cleverly staged and very funny.  If you love cartoons, MGM cartoons in particular or Carl Barks you need tobuy this book right now."--Jerry Beck, Cartoon Brew

Collected for the first time in a deluxe hardcover full-color tome, all of these masterpieces have been meticulously restored. Barks’ Bear Book is edited and designed by Eisner Award-winning comics historian Craig Yoe. Said Yoe, “This volume is sure to delight Carl Bark's legions of fans, young and old alike!”
