Tråd: Fantagraphics publicerar alla Carl Barks Kalle Anka-serier

"In what is sure to be one of the most acclaimed comics events of 2011, Fantagraphics has announced that they will be publishing a definitive collection of Carl Barks’ seminal run of Donald Duck comic stories. In an exclusive interview with Robot 6, Fantagraphics co-publisher Gary Groth revealed that the company – which announced their plans to publish Floyd Gottfredson’s Mickey Mouse comics last summer – had acquired the rights to reprint Barks’ work from Disney and that the first volume will be released in fall of this year. The comics will be published in hardcover volumes, with two volumes coming out every year, at a price of about $25 per volume.

Although the stories will be printed in chronological order, the first volume, “Lost in the Andes,” will cover the beginning of Barks’ “peak” period, circa about 1948. The second volume, “Only a Poor Old Man,” will cover roughly the years 1952-54 and feature the first Uncle Scrooge story. Later volumes will fill in the missing gaps, including his earlier work, in a process somewhat similar to Fantagraphics’ publication of George Herriman’s “Krazy Kat.” "

Tja, även om jag personligen finner Groth en smula outhärdlig som "journalist" så kan ingen säga annat än att Fantagraphics gör en rejäl kulturinsats med sin utgivning -- och allt som håller Carl Barks i tryck och tillgänglig för allmänheten kan ju bara vara bra. Heja!

Nogen, der ved om det nye bibliotek bliver censureret ligesom det gamle CBL fra Another Rainbow?

Jag hörde något om att Groth ska ha svarat undvikande på frågan, och satsningen på att nå en storpublik låter ju litet oroande. En del gamla serier, som den där en stam svarta ankor ska bränna Kalle på bål känns iofs omöjliga att publicera utan att uppröra...
