Carl Barks’ birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Carl Barks (27 March 1901 – 25 August 2000, USA) was a cartoonist, author, and painter. He is best known for his comics about Donald Duck and as the creator of Scrooge McDuck.
He worked anonymously until late in his career, as was the custom at the time. His fans noticed and followed his art without knowing his name, dubbing him The Duck Man and The Good Duck Artist.
He worked for the Disney Studio and Western Publishing where he created Duckburg and many of its inhabitants, such as Scrooge McDuck (1947), Gladstone Gander (1948), the Beagle Boys (1951), The Junior Woodchucks (1951), Gyro Gearloose (1952), Cornelius Coot (1952), Flintheart Glomgold (1956), John D. Rockerduck (1961), and Magica De Spell (1961).
In 1987, Barks was one of the three inaugural inductees of the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
