Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 4 Up-As a child, Rosa was a huge fan of the comic book series "Uncle Scrooge," featuring Disney's Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck, and aspired to one day write and draw for the series like his hero, comic legend Carl Barks. After a decade-long lull in the comics, Rosa finally got his chance to write for the series and created several Scrooge and Donald Duck adventures from 1987 to 2005. Staying true to Barks's original characters and vision while adding his own artistic style, Rosa not only meets the expectations created by Barks but at times exceeds them. These two volumes are filled with epic adventures, like hunting for buried treasure or recovering stolen money, and kid-friendly humor and hilarious situations. Overall, the creator's work has aged well, and newer audiences will have no problem immersing themselves in these stories. At the end of each volume are whole pages of reference notes, explaining each comic in depth and addressing Rosa's process and nods to previous works. These notes show just how passionate he was about his work and the series as a whole.With the resurgence of popularity in retro comics such as "Tintin" and "Asterix," these entries make for a solid addition to comics and graphic novel collections.-Peter Blenski, Greenfield Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2015.
