Posted by Arthur in Don Rosa, Germany

Last October, Don Rosa toured through Germany where he signed at several comic shops and at the Egmont stand at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Check out this wonderful video (with German commentary) by Jano Rohleder.

In the video you can see Rosa holding a copy of the new limited edition statue that was exclusively produced by German Comic und Spielzeug in collaboration with the artist. The statue is now for sale and the company is also currently selling the statue on eBay.

Uncle Scrooge Reaches Milestone 400th Issue

Posted by Arthur in Anniversaries, Boom! Studios, United States

Long-running Uncle Scrooge will reach its 400th issue in February! The world’s richest duck first appeared in the Donald Duck story Christmas on Bear Mountain by Carl Barks. By 1952 the character’s popularity convinced publisher Dell to try three one-shot issues featuring Scrooge in a leading role. After the three one-shots Scrooge was given his own title, starting with issue #4 in December 1953. The monthly comic is currently published in the United States by BOOM! Studios, who celebrates the milestone issue featuring artwork by Carl Barks, Don Rosa, Daan Jippes and Giorgio Cavazzano.
