Top Customer Reviews
Carl Barks understood his role, and as long as he had the maximum amount of creative freedom to write his comics, he was mostly ok with his role. He had bosses of lesser talent in charge of his work, yet he managed greatness despite misguided management.
The style of the book is of interviewer and interviewee, which allows Carl to tell his story in his own words. Not being one to seek the spotlight, it is doubtful that we would know much about Carl Barks without people such as Don Ault who were willing to deal Bark's reclusivness by telling the Carl Barks story by way of an interview format.
A word of advice: Reading this book will only be meaningful if one has read the comics in which Bark's stories are found. If you are not familiar with these comics, find a Carl Barks fan and ask him/her to share some of his stories with you. Then if you find yourself enjoying his humor, his artistry, and the depth of his stories, you will want to know more about the man. This book is a great way to gain such an insight.
