Per Starback:

I got only two other reactions, one with an incomplete list like yours,
and one saying that it is too hard to tell Barks' best. Kind of like
asking a father which son is his favourite.

So, the poll is off. Anyone who wants to discuss favourite stories,
just mail it to the list.

BTW: my own favourite story is "Christmas for Shacktown". Favourite
10-page story: The Cornelius Coot statue contest (WDC 126 or so).
Worst Barks story: "Island in the sky" (Uncle Scrooge #...).

Best non-Barks story: "His Majesty, McDuck" by Rosa.

Per Starback once corrected me when I stated there was only one story
where Scrooge's first dime appeared, _before_ Magica De Spell entered the
comics. He mentioned two Uncle Scrooge comics, but he forgot the _first_
story where the dime appeared: Uncle Scrooge One Shot 495, the 2nd story:
"wandering money bin". He used it there to cut his ropes (the dime was
very sharp after all those years)...

(So there, Per: 1-1. 8-)
