Uncle Scrooge returns to comics in a new Marvel one-shot

Jason Aaron will unleash Scrooge into the multiverse in a new story coming this summer.

Uncle Scrooge and his countless multiverse counterparts are coming to Marvel in June, courtesy of Jason Aaron and several comic artists, including Paolo Mottura, Francesco D’ippolito, Vitale Mangiatordi and more.

Uncle $crooge and the Infinity Dime #1 brings Uncle Scrooge back to comics — while it’s certainly not his first foray on the printed page, it is the first time he’s appeared in his own Marvel title. And in the mighty Marvel manner, it’ll introduce several other variants of the duck, including a twisted alternate Scrooge who steals his money bin.

“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,” Aaron said. “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.”

The comic will also feature other Disney ducks, including Donald and his nephews:

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!

Alex Ross provides a second cover for the one-shot:

The Uncle $crooge and the Infinity Dime one-shot will arrive in stores June 19, and will include a reprint of “Christmas on Bear Mountain,” the story by Carl Barks that first introduced Uncle Scrooge to the world. It arrives in stores June 19.
