New Uncle Scrooge coversPosted on October 5th 2009 in Boom! Studios, United States
A new announcement on the Boom! Studios blog talks about an exclusive variant Uncle Scrooge cover limited to 500 copies that will be available at Boom’s booth at Baltimore Comic-Con 09 this weekend. The cover was hand-picked by Don Rosa and celebrates Uncle Srooge’s 62nd anniversary. This is an exclusive cover for Uncle Scrooge #384, the first new issue in the series in almost a year, which will come out on October 14th.
This is a great cover and it’s also nice to read that Don Rosa is involved. I wish I could make it to Baltimore this weekend to pick up this limited edition Scrooge comic. Mr. Rosa is even listed as a guest at the event!
This is, as far as I know, the first official cover we’re seeing for Uncle Scrooge. There have been others floating around recently, but they always have “Not final art” at the bottom. Here are two of them:
Apparently they are also selling a hardcover edition of the Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck with a convention only cover at Baltimore as well.
I hope they keep the Gemstone logo. The Gold Key logo is too small, and reminds this old fogey of the dreadful Disney comics from the 1970s.
does anyone know how to send them letters? I really miss the ability to order these books from Amazon. There international rates are just incredible: the price for the Uncle Scrooge #384-387 Subscription (Cover A) (International Customers) is $39.99,
