Halloween Fun with Uncle Scrooge
As you can see from this mirthful cover, there’s spooky, Halloween-type fun to be had in the October 2007 issue of Uncle Scrooge. The cover is by the Italian Disney comics artist Giorgio Cavazzano, who also drew the lead story. I’ve long been an admirer of Mr. Cavazzano’s art—it’s both pleasing and cartoony with a style of its own, without being off-model or too twisted. Both the cover and the 33-page story feature the rarely seen (in the United States, at least) comic book character, Brigitta MacBridge, an overbearing gold-digger who insists she is Scrooge’s girlfriend—and since that threatens the fortune of the world’s richest duck, Brigitta scares Uncle Scrooge more than any ghost or goblin ever could! If you would like to add Uncle Scrooge No. 370 to your stash you can get it here .
