Available Now! A Facsimile Edition of CARL BARKS' Ultra-Rare Magazine from 1932!

Coo-Coo #1
Carl Barks worked for The Calgary Eye-Opener, an adult humor magazine, years before he joined the Disney Studio. But a he also collaborated, in 1932, with Eye-Opener editor Ed Sumner to produce Coo-Coo, a less-risqué one-shot designed to test the newsstand potential for such a magazine.

Coo-Coo shows much of the burgeoning genius of Carl Barks, who created about one-third of the gags, done mostly in line and wash artwork. There never was a second issue, and the first must have been distributed in an extremely small quantity, as there is only one copy known to exist today.

 We have created a facsimile edition of Coo-Coo, as faithful to the original as possible, in black and white with red spot color on the covers and centerfold.

The reprint of this extremely rare collector's item is a must for all Barks completists and is the perfect companion piece to Hamilton Comics' The Unexpurgated Carl Barks.
