Description


This volume of the world-famous Duck comics introduces Magica De Spell, Scrooge’s sorceress nemesis! Plus adventures in the frozen North and on a rogue planet headed straight for Earth.


Uncle Scrooge laughed when the mysterious woman offered him one dollar for one of his dimes. But she might just have the last laugh because the dime he accidentally sold her was his lucky Number One Dime — the first dime he ever earned! — and now she’s about to melt it down for one of her strange spells! Then Uncle Scrooge gets wind of a big gold-prospecting contest in Alaska, and he ropes Donald and the boys into helping him prove he’s just as good a prospector now as he was back when he made his fortune. But the infuriatingly lucky Gladstone Gander decides he's going to enter the contest, too — and Gladstone never loses! And when a mysterious new planet suddenly appears in the sky on a collision course with Earth, Scrooge, Donald, and the boys are whisked there — only to discover it’s filled with gold and inhabited by the ancient Norse gods! But to prevent the imminent collision, Scrooge must find a way to turn all that gold into iron — or both planets will be destroyed! Plus: the oddball inventions of the ever-eccentric Gyro Gearloose!

Carl Barks delivers another wildly imaginative collection of outrageous adventures, laugh-out-loud comedy, and all-around comic book brilliance. Each page is meticulously restored and newly colored, with insightful story notes by an international panel of Barks experts.



About the Author


Carl Barks (1901-2000, b. Merrill, Oregon; d. Grants Pass, Oregon), one of the most brilliant cartoonists of the 20th century, entertained millions around the world with his timeless tales of Donald Duck and Barks’s most famous character creation, Uncle Scrooge. Over the course of his career, he wrote and drew more than 500 comics stories totaling more than 6,000 pages, most anonymously. He achieved international acclaim only after he semi-retired in 1968. Among many other honors, Barks was one of the three initial inductees into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 1987. (The other two were Jack Kirby and Will Eisner.) In 1991, Barks became the first Disney comic book artist to be recognized as a “Disney Legend,” a special award created by Disney “to acknowledge and honor the many individuals whose imagination, talents, and dreams have created the Disney magic.” He has been similarly honored in many other countries around the world.

Praise For…


Enormously well crafted and equally enormously entertaining, timeless comedy adventures that Fanta presents in such handsomely designed volumes that they make the perfect gift for just about any reader of comics, regardless of age, background, or experience with the art form.
