In my opinion, Scrooge’s adventures by Keno Don Rosa are among the best comics ever written (and drawn).

"The very first Uncle Scrooge painting.” Original hand-painted cover art by Carl Barks from Uncle Scrooge #43, published by Western Publishing, July 1963.
"In 1963, a Western Publishing executive, wanting a color piece to hang on his office wall, made a special request of Carl for an original Uncle Scrooge painting. Keep in mind this was years before Barks was granted permission by Disney to reproduce his earlier comic book work as fine art paintings, so he did the best thing he could at the time — he took his original inked cover art for a then-recent issue, featuring a clever image of Scrooge tossing cash as if he was preparing a salad, and painted in background and details using a combination of oil paints and watercolors. The result is… the very first Uncle Scrooge painting; it’s also one of the few remaining examples of original cover art by Barks still in existence (Western was notorious for trashing old artwork after it was photographed for reproduction)."

“Great howling crashwagons!” The Richest Duck in the World is back — and so are noisy nephew Donald, wunderkinder Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and rascally richnik Flintheart Glomgold! Because you asked for it, we’re proud to present our first complete, chronological book of Duck adventures by contemporary fan favorite Don Rosa — following in the footsteps of Disney legend Carl Barks with an exciting, lovingly detailed visual style all his own! Rosa, among the world’s most beloved modern cartoonists, launched his Barksian career in 1987. Famed for his prizewinning “Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck,” Rosa wrote and drew a whopping two decades’ worth of ripping Scrooge and Donald yarns! Presented with sparkling color and “extras,” these Duckburg epics are getting a definitive, comprehensive North American edition for the very first time — at a price even Scrooge would consider a bargain!
