Book Review: Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Twenty-Four Carat Moon

Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Twenty-Four Carat Moon Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: The Twenty-Four Carat Moon by Carl Barks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book collects a large helping of Uncle Scrooge stories by Carl Barks. While not as good as some of his earlier works in terms of the writing, they still are quite enjoyable with a mix of full length stories, six-page shorts, and half-to-one page jokes, bolstered by superb art. This book features Scrooge's rematch with Flintheart Glomgold and the Twenty-Four Carat moon story is great. My favorite is, "The Magic Ink" which is just a delicious bit of comedy.

Included in the collection are some Gyro Gearloose-led stories which are decent, though not as good as the Uncle Scrooge tales. The book also features some well-done and insightful commentary on each story in the collection.

A very solid and engaing read.
