Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, Appendix 2: Scrooge & Family
It's been a while, I know, but finally -- here is the fourth and final installment in my "Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" series! If you remember, the first two posts covered Scrooge's rise from poor showshine boy to the World's Richest Duck, as chronicled in Don Rosa'a magnificent twelve-part epic, while the third post (the first of the two appendixes) examined his stormy romance with Glittering Goldie O' Gilt, as told in additional comics by Rosa -- and of course by Carl Barks, Scrooge's creator.

In this second appendix, we'll take a closer look at the one thing Scrooge didn't get to really experience until he was an old duck, namely family, and how he finally got to be properly part of one.

Meet the ducks behind the cut! )

Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, Appendix 1: Scrooge & Goldie
My earlier posts here on Don Rosa's magnificent epic, The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck seemed to go down well, so I decided to spread the praise for the richest duck in the world a little further, and present some scenes from other important parts of Scrooge's life, stories that weren't included in the twelve-part miniseries but still fit into its continuity.

There'll be two "appendix" posts, both including snippets not only from Don Rosa's comics but also a bit from the late, great Carl Barks. And this first of the two is, of course, dedicated to Scrooge's one-true-love-that-almost-was, Glittering Goldie O'Gilt.
