Carl Barks

I enjoyed doing the gag covers better than the story ones because they were usually simpler. A cover based on an incident in the plot took a great deal of staging to tell a little story that was still part of the book. And it had to make sense on its own.More Carl Barks [10/11/2011 09:10:15]
I read some of my stories recently and thought, 'How in the hell did I get away with that?' I had some really raw cynicism in some of them.More Carl Barks [10/11/2011 09:10:19]
I was never a Boy Scout, but oh, I wanted to be one when I was a kid about ten or eleven years old. But there wasn't anyplace where I could ever join the Boy Scouts.More Carl Barks [10/11/2011 09:10:26]
I've always looked upon the Ducks as caricature human beings. Perhaps I've been years writing in that middle world that J.R.R. Tolkien describes, and never knew it.More Carl Barks [10/11/2011 09:10:41]
There was no difference between my characters and the life my readers were going to have to face.More Carl Barks [10/11/2011 09:10:47]
I always felt myself to be an unlucky person like Donald, who is a victim of so many circumstances. But there isn't a person in the United States who couldn't identify with him. He is everything, he is everybody; he makes the same mistakes that we all make.More Carl Barks [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Ideas generally come in a very complicated form, and you've got to strip them down to make them usable. Boil a gag down to its simplest form, and it is readily discernible to anybody who sees it.More Carl Barks [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Before I started drawing a comic, I would read my script for it ten or twenty times.More Carl Barks [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The thing that I consider most important about my work is this: I told it like it is. I told my readers that the bad guys have a little of good in them, and the good guys have a lot of bad in them, and that you can't depend on anything much; nothing is always going to turn out roses.More Carl Barks [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
