Compare two other things in the Barks panels, Ami - the shapes of the drops of water and the weight and feel of the brush strokes. In the first there is thick and thin and molded to the shape of the body. In the second panel all the lines of the arms are pretty much the same thickness.

I would love to see the rest of the panels.

Ok here are a few more clips from Four Color 308. I'm not trying to argue either, just note similarities in style. It in no way proves that Carl Barks drew something or not.

And this just might be the only example of "Good Girl Art" in a Walt Disney comic book. I've always loved Carl Barks--the first comic I ever owned was a Walt Disneys Comics and Stories with a Barks reprint bought for 15 cents at the tender age of 8. It was a few years before I found out who the artist was.

Do not suppose anyone has a cover scan of Four Star's Jolly Comics, Korner Kid Comics or Merry Comics all from 1947 do these comics even exist?

Certainly I never knew before that Barks had a thing for girlie art, the only birds I ever saw that were drawn by him were of the Disney variety. the girls look good, but i still prefer the ducks.

Uh, JVJ...maybe we'd be better off with just a site link?

I don't see a problem here DM.  It's hardly pornography.

I am a prude and I would consider that picture art especially in context of the thread. Demonstrates that Barks was truly an artist. The detail in the bed are phenominal with the details on the girl being minimal but just right.
