This is the perfect gift set for Donald Duck/Uncle Scrooge comics fans.
To commemorate the first time Don Rosa's legendary and internationally acclaimed Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge stories have been comprehensively reprinted in America, we have produced a stunning two-volume boxed set collecting the first two books in the 10-volume series. These two volumes contain over 30 of Rosa's ingeniously plotted, meticulously rendered, and kinetically vital Duck stories — from "A Matter of Gravity," in which Magica deSpell turns Uncle Scrooge's world upside down and sideways, to "Return to Plain Awful," Rosa's sequel to Carl Barks' "Lost in the Andes." Both books are available in a customized, full-color slipcase at a bargain price.
"...[I]t looks great, and the new volumes of the Rosa library should prove perfect companion volumes for those in the Barks library, particularly for readers who find their appetites for these types of duck tales whetted by the Barks books. …Rosa's Duck comics? They're great ones." — J. Caleb Mozzocco - School Library Journal
"The work itself remains essential: More than 'just' a Barks homage, Rosa carried the Good Duck Artist's legacy into legitimately new territory, exposing and massaging the pathos and wicked humor at the core of every good nostalgic exercise." — Tim O'Neil - The A.V. Club
"…Rosa is so sincere in his desire to revive Barks's style of adventure and humor it shows in every panel, every detail of his work. He's taking this seriously, folks, and its all there. … Good stuff, sez I." — Jerry Beck - Cartoon Research
"I love [Don Rosa's] body of work. I've bought it multiple times. I'll be happily buying it again when Fantagraphics reprints it this fall. Love, love, love." — Augie de Blieck Jr. - Comic Book Resources
"In the handsome reprints of Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Library, Vols. 1 & 2 Gift Box Set, cartooning journeyman genius Rosa displays his penchant for turning out issue after issue of globetrotting adventures… The work is more than deserving of a collection centered on the work of a funnybooks auteur…" — Aaron Ragan-Fore - Eugene Weekly
