As we prepare for the release of our newest Carl Barks book, The Seven Cities of Gold, we’re excited to also have the boxset of volumes 7 and 8, Lost in the Andes and Trail of the Unicorn, coming out in October as well. Here is the advance copy we’ve received to ogle: a beautiful slipcase cover holding two books full of duck adventures is the perfect way to cheer up a grey, drizzly Seattle day.

Excerpts for each book are available at their respective listing pages, and we’ll have an unboxing video preview to whet your appetite for this box set—a perfect gift for any Carl Barks fan. Until then, check out the box set page, where you can pre-order your copy for an October delivery.

Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge: The Seven Cities of Gold
by Carl Barks

Ships in: October 2014 (subject to change) — Pre-Order Now

240-page full color 7.5” x 10.25” hardcover • $29.99
ISBN: 978-1-60699-795-6

Uncle Scrooge takes Donald and the nephews on a perilous trek in search of the fabled seven cities of gold! This is the Scrooge story famous for providing Steven Spielberg and George Lucas with inspiration for parts of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Speaking of gold and movies, James Bond fans might recognize in “The Mysterious Stone Ray” a gimmick that was later used in Goldfinger — Uncle Scrooge’s pores fill with gold dust from his money bin. It makes him ill so he goes on vacation, which turns into a rescue mission for a sailor stranded on an island with some very mysterious baddies. Also, Scrooge decides to run for Treasurer of Duckburg, but it seems the only way to get votes is to spend a lot of money. (Sound familiar?) And you know what Uncle Scrooge thinks of that! Carl Barks delivers another superb collection of clever plot twists, laugh-out-loud comedy, and all-around cartooning brilliance.

Fresh from the gothic-surreal mind that brought us The Squirrel Machine, Cochlea & Eustachia collects artist Hans Rickheit's newest mindbending, beautifully cryptic work.

Hot on the tail of our first, recently released Don Rosa Library book, here is the cover for Volume 2: Walt Disney’s Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: Return to Plain Awful, filled with another dozen or so tales spun by the great Don Rosa. In the titular story—and a direct nod to Carl Barks's Lost in the Andes—Rosa takes us back to the angular world of Plain Awful, where square chickens hatch square eggs, and round objects are the single worst sacrilege imaginable.
Pre-order the book now for a November delivery, and stay tuned for more previews to come!
