Favorite Duck Comics

By request, some always-subject-to-change lists from which I may well have left some vitally important stories. Lists in approximately descending order. Only five Donald adventures because there are so many fewer than there are Scrooge adventures. I really ought to also make a list of Barks ten-pagers, as well as one of Gyro stories, but the problem is, there are a hell of a lot of those that I haven't yet read.

Barks Donald Duck Adventures

Dangerous Disguise
Big-Top Bedlam
Vacation Time
Lost in the Andes
A Christmas for Shacktown

Barks Uncle Scrooge Adventures

Only a Poor Old Man
The Horseradish Story
The Flying Dutchman
Back to Long Ago
The Mines of King Solomon
The Prize of Pizarro
The Secret of Atlantis
The Mysterious Stone Ray
Mystery of the Ghost Town Railroad
The Menehune Mystery

Don Rosa Stories

A Letter from Home; or, The Old Castle's Other Secret
Return to Xanadu
Prisoner of White Agony Creek
The Quest for Kalevala
The Empire-Builder from Calisota
Last Sled to Dawson
The Beagle Boys vs. The Money Bin
Attack of the Hideous Space Varmints
His Majesty, McDuck
A Matter of Some Gravity

no William Van Horn? I'm appalled. Its great finding other Scrooge/Donald Duck fans though.

I like some of Van Horn's ten-pagers (like them quite a LOT, actually), but I'm not a huge fan of those longer stories of his I've read. I will surely write about him one of these days.

Golden Helmet, Seven Cities of Cibola??

"Helmet," no, definitely not--I know Don Rosa pinpoints it as a favorite, but although I like it well enough, I wouldn't put it among my all-time favorites. "Cibola" I do like a whole lot, but I can't help feeling it lacks a certain dynamism--as Geoffrey Blum points out in an article somewhere or other, the action is...well, there isn't much TO it, really.

"The Menehune Mystery" ???

Didn't you did a review where you call it a shitty story?

I did. Clearly, I wrote this at a time when I hadn't read it recently and just had vaguely positive memories of it.
