Review: The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck: Books: Don Rosa

When I posted this link last week about Scrooge McDuck, I remembered that there was an actual comic run called Amazon.com: The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. So I set out for the Library to read it.

Boy Howdy, what a Freaked Out Trip this book is! It's the story of Scrooge going from penniless boy in Scotland to becoming the Richest Duck in the World. His globe spanning take him through the great American Boom of the late 19th and Early 20th centuries as well as to the North Pole, the Titanic, Australia and Africa...Classic American Dream (though he is a stingy bastard).

Surreal, comical and heartfelt this book has it all. Scrooge rides Moose and Lions as mounts, he is chased around the world by a zombie, he gains family, loses family, and meets famous historical figures, and of course wallows around in his cash. It's great fun all around.

You can pick up a copy for the price of 5 bucks at Amazon, and you should because it's great fun.
