An oversize artist’s edition of Don Rosa’s devoutly worshipped The Life and Time of Scrooge McDuck?
You’ll have to wait until April, true believers.
Rosa’s epic biography of heroic skinflint McDuck is considered a modern classic, and in Scandinavia, it is mandatory for homes to have a small shrine to it.* This volume will take a proud place in those shrines, I’m sure.
“Don Rosa’s stories are as fresh and entertaining today as they were when I first read them 25 years ago,” said IDW Special Projects Director, Scott Dunbier. “They are timeless treasures.”
This Artist’s Edition will measure 14” x 20” and come packed with 160 pages of high quality scans of the first 6 chapters of The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, covers, and layouts by Rosa. Two additional volumes will complete this epic saga with release dates still to be announced. This Artist’s Edition will set the precedent for something truly special for Disney, and Art fans.
