Has any one else here read "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" by Don Rosa? I just finished it and it is really awsome. A definate must read for those of you who enjoy characters with very detailed backgrounds. This is a good sized comic book that has 12 chapters. It is a comic book that follows Scrooge from when he was a little duckling earning his first American dime as a shoe shiner in Scotland, to the greedy duck we know today that is obsessed with money.
Don Rosa and Carl Barks really worked hard on this character and I will go out of my way to say he is the only Disney character who has an VERY detailed history. Heck, Don Rosa, and maybe even Carl Barks, detailed Scrooges family tree all the way back to medieval times. It's a shame that Disney is not capitalizing on this very special character. It's not all that often you have a character with a detailed history like Scrooge did.
Not only is the story of Scrooge's life very detailed, but so are the illustrations.
I really enjoyed this book and it gave me a fond appreciation for Scrooge McDuck in many different aspects. I definatly recommend it.
