Scrooge McDuck

Don Rosa Does The Art For A Prog Rock Concept Album About Scrooge McDuck From Finland

The Life And Times of Scrooge album cover by Don Rosa

Don Rosa's The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck is a comic book masterpiece. It's one of my all-time favorite stories, a tribute to one of the all-time greats, Carl Barks, by a guy who isn't too far shy of that title himself. Expertly researched and threaded through an existing continuity in a way that's still incredibly accessible to readers. And yet, every time I read it, I find myself thinking "wouldn't this be better if it was told through the timeless medium of Finnish prog rock?"

Okay, well, no, I actually don't think that, but apparently Tuomas Holopainen, keyboardist and songwriter for Finland's own NIGHTWISH, did, and now it has become a reality. The Life and Times of Scrooge, a 10-song album of symphonic rock inspired by the adventures of everyone's capitalist duck, is coming, and it's got a cover by Rosa himself. Check out the video below!

Fantagraphics' reprints of the classic Carl Barks and Floyd Gottfredson Disney stories are some of my favorite things in comics today, so when eagle-eyed fans noticed that a new line had been added for pre-order on Amazon, I got pretty excited. Now, Fantagraphics has confirmed that next summer, they'll be publishing a series of hardcovers bringing the Duck stories by Don Rosa to America for the first time in a series of Don Rosa Library hardcovers.

Capcom Demos ‘DuckTales Remastered’ And ‘Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies’ [SDCC 2013]

Ducktales01

When I was nine years old, I literally begged my parents for Capcom's Ducktales game for the NES. It was all I wanted for Christmas, and fortunately for me, it ended up being one of the greatest games of the era, to the point where it's still my gold standard for games built around running to the right and jumping on bad guys' heads. That said, you can imagine how thrilled I was when Capcom announced that they were doing a new "remastered" version for the current generation of consoles, and after getting a chance to play it at Comic-Con, I'm even more excited for it now.

Don Rosa, best known as the creator of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, one of the great comics epics of the 20th century, has quit comics.

According to Rosa, however, the epilogue was t
