The Lost in the Andes paintings
Barks once said »Lost in the Andes« (FC 223/2) was one of his favorite stories, and indeed it has a feeling which could be called surreal. He made 2 oil renditions of the cover in the 1970's and added an extended version in the 1980's.

Barks submitted this cover on 24 November 1948.
»Eight-Cornered Eggs«
»Square Eggs«
In the 1980's Barks combined the cover motif with a splash panel from the story itself. This time he added Scrooge - well, it is a »return« to Plain Awful!
