My Love Affair With Scrooge McDuck (And The Carl Barks Library Vol. 12)

I love Scrooge McDuck. When I was a kid DuckTales was essential Disney Afternoon viewing for me every day when I came home from school. It was that Indiana Jones type of pulpy exotic adventure that I loved, lush locations and d-d-danger (right behind you) all in the name of accumulating more riches. It wasn’t until I was much older that I found out Scrooge was originated in comics going way back to the 1950’s by Carl Barks. After grabbing a smattering of the old issues here and there to test the waters I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. So I decided to do the only right thing left for me to do an order the first volume of the Carl Barks Library.
