Uncle Scrooge and Christmas
Uncle Scrooge really should be the Christmas comic book poster child, as he was of course originally created for the 1947 Donald Duck comic story, "Christmas on Bear Mountain." Since then Scrooge has appeared in more than a few Yule-themed comics over the years, as celebrated in Duck artist Don Rosa's art, which served a salute to the 70th anniversary (which was acti of the World' Richest Duck. Here from Issue 383 (November 2008) is a Christmas "poster" (the front cover, also by Don Rosa, is seen here too) celebrating the Yule roots of Scrooge McDuck.
