Donald Duck’s famous, eccentric, penny-pinching, billionaire adventurer Uncle Scrooge is getting a new comic book, made possible by a collaboration between Disney and Marvel Comics. Titled “Uncle $crooge and the Infinity Dime!”, the one-shot comic will be out in June 2024, from writer Jason Aaron, whose credits include work on multiple “X-Men”, or “Avengers” stories over the years. Other artists working on the book include Paolo Mottura, Francesco D’Ippolito and Vitale Mangiatordi.

Marvel also offered a synopsis for the comic, alongside the cover artwork, from Alex Ross, and Lorenzo Pastrovicchio: “Uncle $crooge and the Infinity Dime #1 will see Scrooge embark on a time-honored Marvel adventure as he explores the Multiverse to stop a twisted alternate Scrooge from becoming the all-powerful and incomprehensibly rich Scrooge-Above-All! Along the way, the story will introduce exciting new takes on the iconic tycoon with a heart of gold and feature appearances by Scrooge’s nephew, Donald Duck; grandnephews, Huey, Duey, and Louie; and his supporting cast of characters, including Gyro Gearloose!

It’s the story you never expected! One of the greatest characters in the history of comics leaps into his most epic adventure yet, in the manner only Marvel can deliver! When Uncle Scrooge’s fabled money bin gets stolen by a shocking culprit, the world’s toughest duck must undertake a quest unlike any other, alongside a surprising array of allies: other versions of himself!”

Comments from Aaron: “As far as I’m concerned, there’s no disputing the fact that Uncle Scrooge is one of the absolute greatest characters in the history of comics. And I don’t just mean comics that feature talking animals. I mean all comics ever, bar none, Uncle Scrooge’s rich, action-packed history includes some of the most exciting adventure comics ever created, by legendary creators like Carl Barks and Don Rosa. It’s one of the most mind-staggering thrills of my career to get to craft this epic cosmic adventure for the World’s Richest Duck, one that looks to honor the character’s legendary history while taking him to some wild, new, unexplored places in the way that only Marvel can deliver.”

Scrooge McDuck was created by Carl Barks and made his debut in comic books in 1947 with the story titled “Christmas on Bear Mountain” (which will also be reprinted and included in this new one-shot comic). Since then the character has become a fan favorite and was included in many other comics, as well as animated series (Ducktales, woo-oo!). He’s made a pretty big impact on the world, with his impressive backstory and many adventures he’s survived, sometimes alongside his extended family, which have entertained readers and viewers for decades. This new, multiverse story is also likely to be a fun read.

Check out this new, unique Uncle Scrooge adventure when it releases, on June 16th, 2024.
