    The artwork is perfect! It totally captures the images we used to see in our childhoods and the styles are the exact same. I tip my hat to you artists, that is a job very well done indeed. I could give this comic to any person, be it a grandparent or a playschool kid and I am 100% sure they would have no complaints about the artwork. If the artists were trying to take us back to a more simpler time, sitting by the fire with no TV insight, then they have achieved it! I for one, cannot wait to read more and I hope you will pick this up on your next outing to the shops. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chris White Apr 27, 2015

    Whilst reading Uncle Scrooge #1, I had a warm feeling inside because it felt so familiar. It is a shame that such a talented man like Romano Scarpa isn't alive anymore but fortunately we get to revel in his incredible works thanks to IDW. They have reprinted the Italian creator's offerings in English for the very first time, just so you can enjoy them as much as I did. Over the coming months, you'll be treated to more Uncle Scrooge so it is definitely worth getting your hands on this before all the subsequent issues get released (they are also releasing lines of Mickey Mouse and Donald 'Fauntleroy' Duck so get reading them now). For only $3.99, I'm sure even Uncle Scrooge might part ways with the money to get his feathery little hands on this beautiful piece of fiction"I implore you to do them same. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Austin Lanari Apr 22, 2015

    Kudos to IDW and to Disney for working together to bring us this line of stories. $3.99 an issue will not set me back nearly as much as an Italian edition of Rosetta Stone. And only one of those things features a rich old Scottish duck in a dress because anambiguouslyRussian rat tailor keeps trying to steal his jacket. Read Full Review

    All this Duck business has reminded me how much I miss my youth. Characters like Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, and Porky Pig make up some of the Looney Tunes, which I lived for back in the day, along with the old shows on Nickelodeon and Tom & Jerry. I can tell you right now, today is going to be a nostalgic day for me—and I love it. Although I can’t go back in time or be a little kid anymore, it’s healthy for everyone to think back on the things that made us happy has kids. So pick this up and get ready! Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Garcia Apr 23, 2015

    Charming and fun and nice to see back in print, "Uncle Scrooge" #1 keeps up the classic Disney gags and jokes, though it feels like it's still in the shadow of a bigger legacy. Read Full Review

    But that's the gag, and seeing him swim in his own money while being a cheapskate, is something that will always make me smile. Older fans will certainly enjoy Uncle Scrooge and new fans who might have as much reverence for the series are sure to be delighted by the shenanigans inside the borders of Duckburg.

    Seriously, KNOW YOUR HISTORY ON THIS ONE. Don't be talking poop on this because it doesn't involve sexy vampires or a gaggle of zombies ripping people to shreds. This comic isn't made to keep up with modern story telling. It's a pleasant blast from the past that gives every 90's kid and even earlier comic enthusiast their retro comic fix. The stories are simple, cute and really well drawn and colored. Scarpa totally DRAWS (puns ay ay!) you into the story. For 3.99 you get three tales and a little slice of feel good pie. Enjoy.
