You know… I read just about all the classic Scrooge/Donald/etc. comics in the mid-to-late eighties and the early nineties, when they were being re-published in pamphlet form by Gladstone and I could cajole my mom into paying a buck for them from a supermarket rack.

(This also means that, when they started publishing new stuff by Don Rosa, I ended up with all of his stuff in its initial run. I have a pamphlet first-run copy of ‘His Majesty McDuck’ that is in absolutly shitty condition, but has immense sentimental value and gets me crazy McDuck cred.)

Anyway! My point, and I do have one, is that I had no clue, no clue AT ALL, that they weren’t current, that they were re-prints of stories that were thirty-plus years old stories. YES, that includes the one with the Peeweegahs, which I look at these days and wince. I totally thought that was being written at the time and didn’t find it and the other stuff that today I find cringe-worthy incongruous at ALL.

My question is, does that reflect badly on me and my upbringing, or incredibly well on the stories?

I can’t help but hear all of Scrooge’s lines in Rusty Venture’s voice.

You had to learn point 35 and 36?

I can’t be too mad at the Peeweegah story just because their dialogue all scans PERFECTLY.

Nobody cares about proper scansion nowadays.

Little did Donald know as he stood on the stilts staring at his mean uncle that a semi-truck with its brakes out was barrelling down the street straight for him….

Would it be possible to have a tag for the Scrooge McDuck comics just like Rex has one? Thanks. :)
