I thought I knew the character, but having read the The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck volume 1 and 2 by Don Rosa, I am hooked to Uncle Scrooge. To tell the truth, I have new found interest in the character. And it was such a joy to find out that BOOM! Studios just reprinted The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion.
I’ve yet to finish the book–not because it’s dull, but because it’s so enjoyable I’m taking my time to savour the wonderful work. The stories are funny and really well-crafted–in terms of storytelling as well as artwork. “The Cowboy Captain of Cutty Sark” and “The Prisoner of White Agony Creek” stand out as two of the better stories.
Together with The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck volume 1 and 2, The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion now stands as among some of books that I’m glad I have on my bookshelf.
