A story about "Uncle Scrooge McDuck: His Life and Times" — 8 years ago
Until now, I’ve tended to stay away from the funny animal genre of comics outside of, say, Tony Millionaire’s Maakies. Who would’ve thought that a Disney funnybook would get as much critical acclaim as The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, by Don Rosa (NOT this title, which is a collection of old Scrooge comics by Carl Barks)? Within a couple of weeks, it was touted as a masterpiece of the medium by two podcasting comics critics (and I’m not aware of more than two – Augie de Bliek and Bill Jourdain, namely). This raised an eyebrow, so when I came across this title in my school’s library (one of the perks of going to art school) I thought maybe I should get some background on the genre and the character – What I know now is limited to the Duck Tales TV show and movie.
