The official cover for Don Rosa’s The Complete Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Vol. 1 has been revealed.
Here is what the previously cover looked like that was posted on Amazon.com.
Here is the official cover with the proper name.
This release from Fantagraphics is Vol. 1, and it will include all 12 stories that make up Don Rosa’s The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. Vol. 2, which will be released at a different time, will include all of the supplemental stories that add to the original 12 stories in the Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck saga.
We have read all of these stories multiple times, and it is definitely essential must read material for Scrooge McDuck and Disney Duck fans. Before this release, you would have needed to buy Fantagraphics Don Rosa Library Vol. 4 and 5 to get all of these 12 stories. The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck as a complete edition has been out of print for quite some time.
We will publish a review on this edition closer to the official release date: April 9, 2019.

The Complete Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Vol. 1
*By purchasing from Amazon.com through this link above, you are supporting DuckTalks at no additional cost to yourself!
This is a must-read for any comic fan or duck fan.
Don Rosa’s storytelling and insane attention to detail comes together in a sweeping epic that spans the globe and takes us on a decades long journey of adventure, triumph and a surprising amount of heartache.
If Floyd Gottfredson is the father of the Disney Comics universe, and Carl Barks is artist who made them transcend the pages, then Don Rosa’s Life and Times anthology might be the gold standard for epic storytelling in the genre. There’s nothing else like it Disney Comics, and very little in most modern literature and art, period.
