I'm a student, so I don't have nearly as much time for leisure reading as I'd like. If I manage to read an entire course book instead of just the assigned chapters, I'll review that here, too.

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion - Don Rosa What can I say. I love Don Rosa's ducks to itty bitty bits, and I can never have too many of his young Scrooge stories.

Also, reading the Making Ofs to each chapter, it seems more obvious than ever that Keno Don Rosa is a total fanboy, which just endears him to me more. The bit about finding Carl Barks' pages on Glittering Goldie was nothing short of squee.

I maintain that The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck is that great live action film that will never be made. Sad!

*insert note about Scrooge kidnapping of Goldie in "The Prisoner of White Agony Creek" and the original Barks outline and how this relates to romanticized rape in old school romance novels and a number of 50s romantic comedies, with a caveat explaining how Scrooge's decision to kidnap Goldie and make her work can be interpreted as a genderblind action and his motives pure-ish though the close association between rape and romance is still somewhat disturbing*
