Uncle Scrooge #285: The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck

Sat Feb 5 14:50:18 CET 1994

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?
