  • Uncle Scrooge was a comic book starring the stingy Scrooge McDuck, his nephew Donald Duck, and grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and revolving around their adventures in Duckburg and around the world. It was first published in Four Color Comics #386 March 1952, and the most recent issue to date was released in 2011. It has been produced under the aegis of several different publishers, including Western Publishing, Gladstone Publishing, Disney Comics, Gemstone Publishing, and Boom! Studios, and undergone several hiatuses of varying length. Despite this, it maintained the same numbering scheme throughout its six decade history. Besides Scrooge and his family, recurring characters included Gyro Gearloose, Gladstone Gander, Emily Quackfaster, and Brigitta MacBridge. Among the adversaries who made repeat appearances were the Beagle Boys, Magica De Spell, John D. Rockerduck and Flintheart Glomgold. It was one of the core titles of the "Duck universe." Its early issues by famed writer/artist Carl Barks formed the inspiration for the syndicated television cartoon DuckTales in the late 1980s.
