The fabulous Fantagraphics project to collect the complete classic Carl Barks comics featuring the "Disney" Ducks – which could more accurately be described as the Barks Ducks – continues with this volume devoted to Barks's most famous creation, Uncle Scrooge. "Only a Poor Man" collects the entirety of the first six issues of Uncle Scrooge that were originally published between 1952 and 1954. Not only are the classic Scrooge epics that form the bulk of each of the six issues collected here (for the record: "Only a Poor Old Man", "Back to the Klondike", "The Horse Radish Treasure", "The Menehune Mystery", "The Secret of Atlantis" and "Tralla La") but also the numerous short pieces and one-pagers that rounded out each issue, as well as the covers to each of the issues, which are included amidst the copious story notes section at the conclusion of the volume. These are some of the most enjoyable comics stories there are, the work of one of the all time greats. Should you like to delve deeper and/or need further encouragement, let us direct you to our lengthy pæan to the first volume issued in this series as well as this 18-page PDF excerpt from the present volume.
