NIGHTWISH

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!
