Well, I got a pleasant suprise this week. My brother usually brings home a
bunch of comics for me each week, giving them to me one at a time (well,
actually, he flips them to me across the room). At about the fifth toss
I was greeted with a brand new Don Rosa cover! It was Uncle Scrooge
(Gladstone) #285, the begining (Sp?) of "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck".
This first story: "The Last of The Clan McDuck". Don's art is great as usual,
and filled with the great detail that I always expect from him. The best
panel in the wole book may be the little sight gag in panel 2 on page three,
A worm is tapping a bird (who is pulling up a worm) on the shoulder, and is
holding a nail drive club in the other hand. The Story is a hoot, with Barks
references flying fast and furious. And, seeing Scrooge as a kid, along with
Hortense and Matilda is great.
My only complaint: Kid Scrooge looks too much like Huey, Dewey, and Louie,
with hair :-)
Hey Don, do you ever plan to do a "Life and Times of Donald Duck"? Or how
about the story of Scrooges sisters' lives?
