Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge Vol. 1: Only a Poor Old Man
Fantagraphics' second release in this series focuses on Carl Barks's other protagonist and perhaps greatest creation: Scrooge McDuck. Featured are four full-length stories plus over two dozen shorter stories and one-page gags. Newly recolored to combine the warm, friendly, slightly muted feeling of the original comic books with state-of-the-art crispness. Barks' comics are joined by fascinating essays about the creation of the stories and expert analysis of their content.
