REMEMBERING CARL by Joseph Robert Cowles, is a compilation of essays, articles and images regarding the work of the world's most prolific best-selling storyteller and master cartoonist, Carl Barks. For some twenty-three years, Carl wrote and drew Disney comic book stories of Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge (whom he created) and other denizens of his mythical Duckburg, USA. These stories have been reprinted many times in every major language worldwide, making Donald and his fellow waterfowl the best known and perhaps most loved fictional characters of all time. However, Carl Barks was an unknown name throughout most of his career, as his work was attributed to Walt Disney. It was not until he retired from cartooning and with permission of the Disney organization turned his talents to creating oil paintings of the Disney-owned characters (based primarily on scenes from his comic book stories), that Carl was able to sign his own name to his work. Joseph Robert Cowles, author of REMEMBERING CARL, is one of the several young "Duck Fans" who were privileged to meet "The Good Artist" while he was still producing comic book stories. This dissertation springs from recollections of the friendship that developed between Barks and Cowles, insights regarding his craft that the old master shared with his young fan, and the potential for the work of "The Good Artist" to become the most valuable motion picture franchise of all time.
