It's Wednesday and time for the third letter Carl Barks wrote John Verpoorten. This one's from July 11, 1961. As usual it's Bill Peckmann who shares.
Quick jump to 1976.
Bill and John were visiting the Barkses in their home in Goleta the same day as Barbara Boatner was taking photos for "the Comics Journal". Here we see John and Carl at the drawingboard followed by the cover to tCJ #73.
