Ten stories in this book, mostly unavailable since their original printings in comic books, are collected here together for the first time, along with a few other gems. Also included are several virtually unknown works by Barks which have not previously been collected anywhere. Four of the stories in this book appear in restored versions which are intended to showcase them as Barks originally intended for them to be seen. All of the stories are sourced from high quality masters except for three for which there are no known surviving masters. As collected in this book, newly colored and sourced from original masters, the stories look much better in this book than in previous printings. The 26 Barney Bear and Benny Burro stories, the bulk of Barks' non-Disney work, are in print in the USA in another book, The Carl Barks Big Book of Barney Bear; however, unfortunately, original masters were not used for their reproduction. The Unavailable Carl Barks also includes a comprehensive index to all of Carl Barks' non-Disney comics, and other introductory, historical, and background articles, totaling about 40 pages. Every story that Carl Barks wrote or drew featuring Disney characters during his career as a comic book creator has been reprinted, often many times, in comic books and albums and books. The Disney work is the most important of Barks' work, but Barks also wrote and/or drew 36 other comic book stories featuring non-Disney characters between 1943 and 1953; these have been less-well served in reprinting and are much less well-known. They are generally comparable in quality to the average of the Donald Duck work he was doing at the same time. A few of them are quite creative and delightful, and stand well with the best short story work he was doing at the time. Most of them have been out-of-print since their publication decades ago in comic books. This book is intended to remedy that situation.

Kim Weston is a long time Barks fan and scholar who has contributed to Mike Barrier's magazine, Funnyworld, as well as the Barks Bibliography, and the book, Carl Barks and the Art of the Comic Book. He was a contributor to the Celestial Arts book, Uncle Scrooge McDuck: His Life and Times, and to Another Rainbow's Carl Barks Library. He has contributed Barks and Disney information to the Overstreet Price Guide. He is a contributor to Fantagraphics Books' ongoing series of The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library. And he scripted The Ultimate Barks Collector gag page drawn by Walter Simonson. Recently he has been contributing to The Carl Barks Fan Club Pictorial and he has also written occasionally on Barks' work for the past 45+ years, contributing to Barks and Disney scholarship mostly for a small audience in an Amateur Press Alliance. That is where he commissioned Jack L. Chalker to write the article which was first published in that Amateur Press Alliance and which was later expanded to become Chalker's book, An Informal Biography of Scrooge McDuck. That work was one of the influences that later inspired Don Rosa to do his own comic book series, the well-loved Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. He authored the recently published The Carl Barks Index: A Concordance of the Comics of Carl Barks. The book indexes Barks’ complete Disney comic books from December 1946 to March 1953, plus the first 12 issues of Uncle Scrooge, extending that part of Barks’ work to June 1955, as published in the Fantagraphics Books: The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library Volumes 5-14 and also as in the original Comic Books. This time period and these books contain a majority of Barks’ very best work and includes the time period when Barks is generally considered to been at his peak of creativity, productivity, and quality of writing and drawing.
