Description


The secret of Ali Baba’s hidden treasure, the return of Magica de Spell — and a rare story never before seen in the U.S.!


“You can’t depend on anything in Persia being what it seems!” warns Uncle Scrooge. But when he, Donald, and the nephews are approached by a wayward archaeologist bearing fragile clay tablets that point the way to Ali Baba’s lost cave, the hunt is on for the most fabulous treasure of the ancient world! And Scrooge will soon discover how true his words really are! Then, Scrooge shields his Money Bin in an indestructible glass that defies the efforts of Magica de Spell and the Beagle Boys to crack it. What could possibly go wrong? Plus: the oddball inventions of the ever-eccentric Gyro Gearloose! Additionally, we’re proud to present a rare story started by Carl Barks and completed by internationally acclaimed Duck artist Daan Jippes, never before published in the U.S. — “The Pied Piper of Duckburg.”

Carl Barks delivers another wildly imaginative collection of outrageous adventures, laugh-out-loud comedy, and all-around comic book brilliance. Each page is meticulously restored and newly colored, with insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.



About the Author


Carl Barks (1901-2000, b. Merrill, Oregon; d. Grants Pass, Oregon), one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Barks’s most famous character creation, Uncle Scrooge. Over the course of his career, he wrote and drew more than 500 comics stories totaling more than 6,000 pages, most anonymously. He achieved international acclaim only after he semi-retired in 1968. Among many other honors, Barks was one of the three initial inductees into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 1987. (The other two were Jack Kirby and Will Eisner.) In 1991, Barks became the first Disney comic book artist to be recognized as a “Disney Legend,” a special award created by Disney “to acknowledge and honor the many individuals whose imagination, talents, and dreams have created the Disney magic.” He has been similarly honored in many other countries around the world.

Daan Jippes (b. 1945), an internationally beloved Duck artist, lives in the Netherlands.
