The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck confirmed Don Rosa's status as the heir apparent to the great Carl Barks as Disney's premiere comic storyteller. For this massive 12-part epic, originally printed in Uncle Scrooge 285-296 (April 1994 through February 1996), Rosa combed through Barks' stories for the many clues about what transformed Scrooge McDuck from a Scottish boy to the richest duck alive. Thus, Scrooge's comment that he fought in the "cattle wars of the old frontier" was turned into a story about the young Scrooge's cattle job in Montana. Rosa incorporates actual historical facts with known elements of the Scrooge mythology to spin an incredibly rich chronicle, full of tall tales, crazy gags, and high adventure. The 1995 Eisner winner for Best Serialized Story is even better in trade paperback format, in which Rosa offers his own memories of writing the story, "insane details to look for," and rare art. Want more of Rosa's Scrooge? The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion collects other stories about the life of Scrooge that weren't in the original series. --David Horiuchi

Synopsis

Don Rosa created this twelve-part story to delineate exactly how Scrooge McDuck acquired his fortune and became the World's Richest Duck. The story was originally serialized in the United States in Uncle Scrooge comics. Now it has been collected in one all-encompassing popularly-priced volume.

Don Rosa hat bei den Zeichnungen makellose Arbeit geleistet, man hätte sich keine bessere Biografie für $rooge McDuck wünschen können.
Positiv geäußert habe ich mich schon ausführlich über die deutsche Softcoverausgabe.

Zu ergänzen ist natürlich, dass das Original immer authentischer ist als eine - in dem Fall ausgezeichnete - Übersetzung.
Ein weiterer Pluspunkt: Die Cover der Einzelgeschichten sind ganzseitig abgedruckt.

In Verarbeitung und Druck fällt die US-amerikanische Ausgabe ab - geschenkt, das ist man gewohnt; leider ist auch die Kolorierung dieser Ausgabe deutlich schlechter als die der deutschen Version.
Die Kommentierungen der Kapitel gefallen mir ebenfalls nicht in dem Maße.
Insgesamt liebloser gestaltet.

Anzumerken ist, dass in dieser Ausgabe nur die zwölf Hauptkapitel enthalten sind. In der deutschen Ausgabe finden sich auch die sechs Zusatzkapitel und eine sehr hübsche Seite mit den Fundorten der D.U.C.K. ("dedicated to Uncle Carl by Keno")-Widmungen an Barks, die Don Rosa im Startpanel der meisten Geschichten kreativ versteckt.

Ergänzung 05.02.2008:
Leider ist die Bewertung nicht mehr zu ändern, drei Punkte wären im Nachhinein das Maximum. Die positiven Punkte bleiben allesamt bestehen, aber der Eindruck schlechter Verarbeitung verstärlte sich schnell.
Das Buch fällt auseinander, damit begann es schon wenige Wochen nach Kauf. Die Seiten sollte man tunlichst nicht ganz aufzuklappen versuchen, der Umschlag hat sich längst gelöst.

Wohlgemerkt:
Der Band wurde sorgfältig behandelt wie meine vielen anderen Bücher - die ansonsten allesamt in sehr gutem Zustand sind, auch die Softcoverbände, die ich öfter in Gebrauch habe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the greatest comics I've ever had the pleasure of reading. 18. Juli 2005
Von Mister Bad Example - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Most people my age aren't too familiar with the characters from the Uncle Scrooge comics, and fewer still realize that so many characters and stories from the "Ducktales" cartoon show came directly from the mind of Carl Barks, a brilliant Artist/Writer for these Disney comics. Don Rosa is one of the writers/artists that Barks had passed the torch on to, and given the brilliant stories in "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," it's no wonder why.

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck follows Scrooge from just before his tenth birthday in his homeland of Scotland, and shows his adventures, begining with aquiring his Number 1 Dime. Scrooge travels to America to make his fortune, becomes a cowboy, a prospector and Argonaut, travels to the Klondike, Australia, South Africa, and even returns to Scotland before building his money bin, founding the town of Duckburg, and then begining the 27-year adventure that would bring him from simple billionaire to the lofty status of "Richest Duck in the World." You really get a distinct understanding of just how tough of an old miser Scrooge McDuck is by reading through this book.

Needless to say, Rosa did a brilliant job putting together "The Life and Times," particularly considering that the majority of the facts within the story came from random bits of dialogue from Carl Barks comics. Rosa won an Eisner Award back in 1996 for "The Life and Times" stories, and it is very well deserved.

There's a whole life behind these characters that you would never know from the Ducktales cartoon. These comics are the truest way to experience the depth and richness behind these characters, and "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" is a fantastic place to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen SUPERB!!! 6. Oktober 2005
Von Babytoxie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am primarily a reader of superhero comics and never, ever had a desire, even as a child, to read any comics involving Disney characters. In fact, I didn't like Disney in general, so my little insulated world of comics would certainly not be tainted with the adventures of talking animals. That all changed this week when I purchased the trade paperback THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SCROOGE MCDUCK. Even now, I can't say exactly what made me pick up this book. Maybe it was the excellent cost per page ratio. Maybe it was the exceptional printing quality and color. I have a sneaking suspicion that the spirits of Walt Disney and Carl Barks were urging me to give this character a try. I am so glad I did.

The title of this collection says it all fairly well: the story is indeed the life and times of Donald Duck's miserly uncle. It's the way the story is constructed that makes it so engaging. Writer/artist Don Rosa painstakingly researched the original Uncle Scrooge stories by creator Carl Barks, pulling out references and little tidbits to construct a fascinating history in 12 chapters, beginning in 1867, when little Scroogie was a mere shoeshine boy in his native Scotland, to 1947, detailing Scrooge's reintroduction to his nephew Donald, as well as Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Furthermore, you get seamlessly interwoven backgrounds on many characters associated with or related to Scrooge.

Primarily, Don Rosa tells some funny and entertaining stories, but they can also be full of emotion, as when Scrooge and his sisters leave Scotland for America, or when we see Scrooge caring more for money than for his family. I tore through this book in two afternoons, not because it's a quick read (far from it), but because I had such a hard time tearing myself away! Scrooge's adventures are not unlike those of Forrest Gump or Harry Flashman, in that he has a habit of turning up in the right place at the right time and encountering all sorts of famous historical characters or events. At the end of each chapter, Rosa provides informative notes on which occurrences were taken from which of Barks' stories. What really got my attention, however, was the art. The best way I can explain it is, picture the standard Disney characters superimposed on the frantic, crowded artwork of MAD Magazine artist Will Elder. There are so many details and humorous background additions to the panels, to the point that I wonder how Rosa was able to stay focused. In fact, there are several instances where I am convinced he was paying direct tribute to MAD.

It is easy to see why this story earned Don Rosa a Will Eisner Award in 1995. Even though I was totally unaware of it at the time, I fully support it! So, Mr. Barks, thank you for your wonderful creation. And Mr. Rosa, thanks to you for opening a door that I had considered closed long ago. Each of you has a new fan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable story for fans of Scrooge and Carl Barks. 11. März 2010
Von Sean Curley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Carl Barks was one of the seminal artists in the history of American comics, but he is whose influence is little-recognized in his own country, relatively speaking. For thirty years from the 1930s to the 1960s, Barks laboured anonymously for the Walt Disney Corporation, producing comics about Donald Duck and related properties, including his most famous creation, Scrooge McDuck. Disney comics are little-remembered in American popular culture compared to the work of Stan Lee and co., but in Europe the reverse is true. Most North Americans today would recognize Scrooge from the 1984 "Mickey's Christmas Carol" and "DuckTales", the classic cartoon series based on Barks' work.

"The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" is Don Rosa's masterwork tribute to Barks' epic body of work on Scrooge McDuck's comics. Rosa is a fan of the first degree, whose attitude toward the work of others with Barks' characters is condescending at best (look to any of the commentaries included there, where any usage of ideas from writers other than Barks is offered apologetically); he despised "DuckTales" for its adaptational looseness. The plot is based on chronologically arranging every anecdote Barks ever gave about Scrooge's past and, with few exceptions, stringing a story between them. And yet, it's an excellent story, because Rosa knows what he's doing, and there's rather less contradiction in Barks' own writing than you might expect given the circumstances.

We first meet Scrooge in Scotland, the child of a family of impoverished aristocrats. Driven to find his fortune in the New World, Scrooge travels to America and has a number of adventures while trying to make money. Rosa prides himself on a well-researched period setting, and we see the riverboats of the Twain-era Mississippi, the cattle grazing on the prairies, and mineral prospecting. Farther afield, Scrooge visits his family's ancient castle in Scotland, and first encounters his archenemy Flintheart Glomgold while prospecting in the Transvaal. A lot of these stories serve to set up or foreshadow plots that will only pay off in Barks' original stories, but Rosa still makes it enjoyable.

Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don Rosa'a Masterpiece 7. März 2006
Von Robert E. Toomey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When I was a kid in the fifties, the only comic book artist whose work I recognized on sight was Carl Barks. Others knew him as "the Good Artist." I had no name for him. But I knew and loved his work. It stood out as something special from the other artists who drew Donald and the other Disney duck characters, and he was my favorite. Don Rosa, who wrote and drew "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck," felt the same way. And here Rosa demonstrates that he is the only artist truly worthy of inheriting the Barks mantle of "the Good Artist." His loving retelling of the adventures of Uncle Scrooge, from his youth in Scotland to his adventures in Australia and the gold fields of Alaska, Rosa fills in the details hinted at by Barks, never violating what is already known about Scrooge, or the actual history of the times. It's an exciting tale, beautifully drawn and written, and with the added bonus of extensive story notes by Rosa. Definitely a work of art, and one from the heart. Carl Barks would have been proud.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Oh, so? 21. Dezember 2005
Von Johnny Heering - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Don Rosa is the greatest creator of Uncle Scrooge comics since Carl Barks himself. This book features Rosa's 12 part biography of Scrooge McDuck. Using clues from old Barks comics, he tells the story of how Scrooge became the richest duck in the world. It's a magnicicent comic, which won the 1995 Eisner award for Best Serialized Story. Highly recommended to any fan of Disney comics.
