Of keen interest to Carl Barks fans, our lead-off story, “Trick or Treat,” is the master cartoonist’s adaptation of the Donald Duck cartoon of the same name — with nine pages added back in from the originally truncated version! Then, Donald is convinced that Huey, Dewey, and Louie’s toy gun can really put people into a hypnotic spell — so he tries it out on Uncle Scrooge! Hijinks abound as Uncle Scrooge plants pots of gold at the foot of a rainbow to see who will handle the money best — Donald, Gladstone, or the nephews. Also, one of Barks’s own personal favorites, “Omelet” — the story of Donald’s slapstick misadventures as a chicken farmer. Nineteen stories plus bonus features, each story meticulously restored and newly colored. Insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.
