Covered 365: Day 278

Hellblazer #278, DC/Vertigo Comics, June 2011, Artist: Simon Bisley. Tough slogging today! My favourite was Simon Bisley’s hard as hell cover to Hellblazer #278. I also like the scene Bob Foster gives us on the cover of Uncle Scrooge #278.…

Covered 365: Day 263

Uncle Scrooge #263, Walt Disney, February 1992, Artist: Don Rosa. Any one of these would have handily won the day yesterday. I was always a Carl Barks guy until someone years ago showed me a hardcover book celebrating Don Rosa’s…

Covered 365: Day 261

House of Mystery #261, DC Comics, February 1978, Artist: Mike Kaluta. Today had 2 strong contenders for the top spot. I should call it a tie. I’ll start with Mike Kaluta’s masterful cover to House of Mystery #261, the imagery…

Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck “The Son of the Sun” The Don Rosa Library Vol 1

I never read any of the Carl Barks or Don Rosa duck comics until relatively recently when Fantagraphics began releasing collected editions.

Continuing in its tradition of bringing the best of Donald and Uncle Scrooge to the masses, Fantagraphics has released the first volume in the Don Rosa library.

Looking Forward to 2014

Happy New Year to all our readers! Last year was a powerhouse in comic books, but with 2013 a distant image in our rear view mirrors I now turn to 2014. Specifically those things in 2014 that have me awake at night with anticipation.

Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Man

There are certain comic books that you are supposed to have read. Ones that have critical and/or commercial success behind them. Books like Maus and Watchmen and Love & Rockets and The Dark Knight Returns. Things that you know you…
