Once upon a time, there was a cartoonist called Carl Barks. He created Uncle Scrooge, the Beagle Boys, Gyro Gearloose, Magica De Spell and many other characters from the Donald Duck universe. He also acted as story director in many Donald shorts between 1937 and 1944, and many DuckTales episodes were adapted from his comics. He became known as The Duck Man.
In 1985, another cartoonist started working with the Ducks: Keno Don Rosa. Barks was his greatest influence, and not only his original scripts were incredibly evocative of Barks' stories, but Don Rosa created "sequels" to many of Barks' adventures. He started creating an "Uncle Scrooge chronology" that culminated in his masterpiece "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck", which tells of Uncle Scrooge's childhood and how he became the world's richest duck.
We were very fortunate to see the Complete Works of Carl Barks published here in Brazil, but for a number of reasons, I'm pretty sure the Don Rosa Library will NEVER see print down here. So I got this from Amazon. Everything is hard cover, it looks very sturdy, it's larger than a regular comic book so you're able to truly appreciate all the intricate details Don Rosa adds to the panels, and the explanatory texts and accompanying extra art is amazing.
I can't wait to finally read all the Don Rosa Duck stories. Volume 3 is already available for pre-order, although I'll wait for the next box with Vols. 3 & 4.
My very first comic book was an Uncle Scrooge comic that my parents bought me while we on vacation. From that day forward, I was hooked. I bought what I could find when I could find it. Growing up in a very rural part of Arkansas, the closest comic book shop was three hours away so had to scrounge what I could find from the local grocery stores magazine rack.
Anyway, I'll never forget The Son of the Sun. As I read it, it resonated with me in a way that I can't really explain. It was and still remains one of my favorite comics - ever.
As an 8 year old kid, I didn't know this was Don Rosa's first book - all I knew was that it was different...special...inspiring even. Many people claim that Rosa is the "heir" to the crown that Carl Barks wore for so many years. His stories are both reflective and respectful to everything Barks created and if everyone put as much effort and love into their passion as Rosa does, the world would be a far better place.
I continued to buy comics when and where I could find them and as the age of the Internet started, I was able to track down and fill in most of my collection.
I didn't know this book series was even in the works until it popped up in my recommended list (thanks Amazon!). I immediately ordered it and pre-ordered volume III. Then I ordered all of the Carl Barks Library as well (also good stuff, by the way).
The books are amazing. The binding, presentation, coloring - all of it is wonderful. Reading them reminded me of why I love comics in the first place. I can't wait to share these stories with my daughter as she gets old enough.
Highest Possible Recommendation.
