While off-topic for an Orthodox Christian forum, I saw a thread on Star Wars vs. Star Trek, so I figured, what the heck.
A few years ago, Fantagraphics began publishing the collected works of Carl Barks for Disney, something which had been done by Gladstone in the 1980s and 1990s, but which has long been out of print. Carl Barks is the person who created the character of Uncle Scrooge, and gave the previously-existing Donald Duck a personality and backstory.
The volumes present the material chronologically, although the volumes themselves are being released out of order (an important step, I think, because momentum needs to be sustained in order to succeed in releasing all 30 volumes over a 15 year period).
The volumes include commentary on each story, its cultural and historical context, and its place in the life and career of Carl Barks. They are hard-bound, and they restore the original coloring. Such may appear dull to those used to modern, shiny gradient-based coloring done on computers, but is how the stories originally appeared.
Not a kid anymore? Not a problem. Barks used a lot of grown-up humor, puns, and references that make reading the stories fun for adults. Also, they provide insight into life in the USA in the 1950s, from a cultural perspective.
