Yesterday Boom! Studios released the first book collecting Don Rosa’s legendary epic story The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. The hardcover album ($16.49 at Amazon) was released earlier than expected, but in case you haven’t seen it yet here are some pictures of this fabulous new book.

The volume contains the first six chapters in the series:
- Chapter 1: The Last of the Clan McDuck
- Chapter 2: The Master of the Mississippi
- Chapter 3: The Buckaroo of the Badlands
- Chapter 4: Raider of the Copper Hill
- Chapter 5: The New Laird of Castle McDuck
- Chapter 6: The Terror of the Transvaal
There’s a two-page foreword by Don Rosa and “making of” commentaries for each chapter. These are the same articles that appeared in Gemstone’s book, which came out in 2005 and is now out of print.
It’s great to see this Eisner Award-winning epic adventure back in print. The second book in the series is slated to come out on March 31st. The Life of Scrooge originally had 12 chapters, but there are additional ‘in-between’ chapters that could fill another two books if Boom decides to print thsse as well.
