Comics Buyer's Guide # 1030 contains something else interesting (in
addition to the Don Rosa interview).  It's an advertisement from the
Carl Barks Studio, P.O. Box 524, Grants Pass, Oregon 97526.  For one
thing, it says that "Carl Barks will attend the '93 Disneyanna Con-
vention" (to be held at Disneyland on Saturday, September 18th).  It
goes on to say that "Carl is through the preliminary painting process
and is currently working on his largest painting...a new moneybin
subject."  "Carl Barks will be doing a new limited edition painting in
a new art medium for him.  Your local Disney store will have information
in the fourth quarter."  Finally, it says that "The first new Barks
Uncle Scrooge story in many years is being created.  Carl has chosen
William van Horn, one of the heir apparents, to do the artwork."

In a recent posting, Don Rosa told us that Barks was producing artwork
for Steve Geppi (owner of the chain of Geppi's Comics World stores).
Is this the same project which this advertisement says will be available
from the Disney Stores?
