Download Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #388
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #388 was the very first comic book that I owned—ever. It was given to me by my parents when I was a small child as a Christmas stocking stuffer and I still own it to this very day—rips, tears, creases and all. This particular issue features "Gladstone's Usual Very Good Year," which is one of the best Donald Duck stories that I have ever read and I am not just saying that due to a nostalgic bias. Of course, the fact that this was written by the near-legendary Carl Barks, as I would learn later in life, had everything to do with the story's high quality.
