Indexer Notes

This is an abbreviated, alternate version of 1942's seminal adventure “Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold” from Four Color (Dell, 1942 Series) #9. It is not a follow-up to the story in Four Color #9, but a totally separate, similarly themed entity. An actual follow-up to Four Color #9 first appeared in Italy in 1962, and was published in the United States in Donald Duck (Boom! Studios, 2011 Series) #366 May 2011.

Pages consist of 1-3 panels each.
