This is truly wonderful news. Carl Barks is one of the true all time great comics creators, and arguably the single most influential of all. Walt Disney's Comics and Stories was read by more people – mostly, but certainly not exclusively, children – in the United States of America than any other comic book title in history, and it was the Donald Duck stories written and drawn by Carl Barks, month after month for twenty years, that was the highlight of every issue.

Intrepid Copacetic customer turned comics reporter, Yakov Hadash has turned in a report on the goings on, yes, but mostly on those comics on offer that were found to be the most Copacetic of MOCCA 2009, which was held the weekend of June 6 & 7, 2009. We're going to take Yakov's advice and try to get these in at Copacetic, so don't hesitate to ask us about any of them to learn if we have been successful.
