Two Carl Barks items: first, “The Hard Loser,” a 10-page back-up story to the Old Duck Man’s second Four Color comic book (the first he both wrote and drew), “The Mummy’s Ring” (September 1943). Barks’ work became more polished later, but his sense of humor was positively here when he did “The Hard Loser!” Laugh again and again, whenever you read it. Second, there’s a great letter from Carl in Comments and Queries with profound answers from Bob Foster. The new cover was done by William Van Horn to illustrate “Hard Loser.” Chapter Two of “Goofy’s Mechanical Wizard” appears by legendary Dick Moores. Finally there’s a Grandma Duck filler by Vicar. This book is available in a extremely limited quantity from Gladstone.
