Upcoming Stuff of Interest - Life of Scrooge Companion

LIFE AND TIMES OF SCROOGE MCDUCK COMPANION
by Don Rosa

You asked for them, and here they are... the pre-chapters, the post-chapters and the in-between chapters of Don Rosa's Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck! Included in this companion are the stories "The Cowboy Captain of the Cutty Sark," "The Vigilante of Pizen Bluff," "The Prisoner of White Agony Creek," "Hearts of the Yukon" and "Sharpie of the Culebra Cut." Finally rounding out the collection are two slightly unusual takes on Scrooge's life: "Of Ducks and Dimes and Destinies" and "Dream of a Lifetime" in which the Beagle Boys invade Scrooge's subconscious mind (!) and wreak havoc during dream-versions of the various "Life of Scrooge" chapters.
208 page colour softcover, $17


Well, here's the book to beat for most highly anticipated book in the next set of solicitations. The first book is excellent stuff, and I think a lot of this stuff has only appeared in those over-priced Gemstone anthologies in English before this, some of them serialized across several issues.
