This is the fifth published volume of this series - it also happens to be the chronologically fifth book. The completed series will contain 30 volumes published out of order.

I saw another review which described the material in this volume as pre-Golden Age (ie from before Barks hit his absolute peak period). I'd rather argue that the Golden Age actually sets in somewhere in this very book. Barks had been doing well orchestrated hilarious ten page stories for some time before 1947 (there will be a number of perfect gems in volume 3 and 4 too) - but this is book is where he starts delivering classic longer stories too. The "Vulcano Valley" story still feels like an early story that doesn't quite work - It relies too much on repetitive dated jokes about laziness and constant 'siestas' in Latin American countries. However, "The Ghost In The Grotto" and "Christmas on Bear Mountain" itself is where it all clicks into place and Barks becomes a world class master. And of course "Bear Mountain" adds the immortal Uncle Scrooge character to the Barks universe.

I've chosen to rate this volume 4 stars. The story/art material is still almost entirely 5 star 'Best ever in the medium' stuff, but the actual physical execution of the first printing of this volume has been slightly compromised due to a production scheduling conflict. It had to be sent off to a different printer than previous volumes. Fantagraphics has had a economically tough year due to losing one of its owners to cancer (the great Kim Thompson, RIP), so I can certainly understand why a Christmas-themed volume of one of their bestseller book series couldn't be rescheduled until after Christmas.

I love Everything Carl Barks produced. There is action in every Picture. And like Hergé he never travelled to all those places that the ducks go.
