Uncle Scrooge 354A panel of judges have arrived at the 2007 nominees for the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, considered the “Oscars” of the comic book industry. Among the nominees of this year is Don Rosa’s “The Black Knight Glorps Again”, from Gemstone’s Uncle Scrooge #354 (buy for $6.96), nominated for Best Short Story. It is the third story by Rosa to feature his original character, The Black Knight, whom first appeared in 1997.

The story features Rosa’s original character Arpin Lusene, a French gentleman and notorious thief nicknamed Le Chevalier Noir (The Black Knight), who has made it his life’s goal to steal Scrooge McDuck’s money, or make it disappear to make people think he stole it. His motive for this is to be remembered as the world’s greatest thief.
