Description
Carl Barks started drawing for Walt Disney in 1935. In 1943, he began drawing Disney stories for Western Printing and Lithography which produced the Dell and Gold Key comic books. Barks retired from the Disney Studio in 1966, but continued to script stories for Western throughout the 1980s.
Background
Carl Barks (1901-2000) began working as an artist for the Walt Disney Studio in November, 1935. By 1937, Bark was transferred to the story board department where he worked on animated cartoons. He left Disney in 1942 and moved to Hemet, California to start a chicken farm. Barks's unsuccessful chicken farming venture led him to return full time to comic book work. In 1943, he began drawing Disney stories for Western Printing and Lithography which produced the Dell and Gold Key comic books.
