The six stories in this album are among the better scripts and were redrawn by Dann Jippes in the early '90s. Jippes is capable of a very "tight" Barks imitation; his redrawn art for "Donald Duck's Atom Bomb" stood in, almost undetectable, for the Barks originals for many years. But Jippes has a "looser" version that recalls Barks without being completely tied to his style, and that is the hand he has applied to these scripts.
These stories are all enjoyable for what they are--light slapstick with inventive flourishes, particularly "Duckmade Disaster" and "Storm Chasers." Jippes even sneaks a Barks caricature into "Duckmade Disaster," possibly reflecting how the old "good artist" felt toward the end of this scripting stint. The first scripts were invigorated with a crankier Scrooge McDuck battling the eco-conscious Junior Woodchucks. By the end of his stint, Barks had clearly milked this conflict as far as his interest could go. But the earlier stories recapture some of the old fun. Jippes' art is a welcome enhancement, and we can hope this reprint will take these stories to a wider audience if not a new generation of readers.
