The Don Rosa Library Gift Box Set #1: Vols. 1 & 2 By Don Rosa Cover Image


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.

About the Author

First active in comics as the indie creator of Captain Kentucky and The Pertwillaby Papers, Don Rosa (b. June 29, 1951) made his jump to official Scrooge sagas with the launch of Gladstone Publishing, the watershed 1980s publisher of fan-friendly Disney comics titles. Rosa later switched to producing Duckburg comics for the pan-European publisher Egmont, leading to his capturing a remarkable international fandom. He lives near Louisville, KY.

Praise For…

...[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

Rosa's comics may be the best comics ever done in the voice of another creator. They're very funny, satisfying yarns, and this presentation -- particularly the color -- is super-handsome. This would have been my favorite book ever at eight years old, and I'm fond of it now.
— Tom Spurgeon - The Comics Reporter

Let me be perfectly clear: The Don Rosa & Carl Barks Duck books are
as good as comics get. Period. Nothing surpasses -- only matches -- the
pure imagination, humor, adventure, and heart of these Donald Duck &
Uncle Scrooge stories.
— Vince Ostrowski - Multiversity Comics
