Two issues of Disney comics published by IDW came out this week, Disney Comics and Stories #1 and Uncle Scrooge: My First Millions. I reviewed Disney Comics and Stories #1 and that review was very positive. This Uncle Scrooge issue is very entertaining as well, but I almost think that Disney Comics and Stories is so much more entertaining to me that Uncle Scrooge: My First Millions feels like the lesser of the two.

The whole issue is one story about Uncle Scrooge telling Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey, and Louie about how he made his first million. The story has several funny moments that make the issue flow pretty well. The issue stays interesting the whole time because of the hyjinx Uncle Scrooge gets himself into time and time again. There were some moments fell a little flat in my opinion and at the end of the issue, it was those moments that made it a pretty good issue and not a great one.  

I may sound like a broken record but I will never stop praising the artwork in Disney comics. Marco Mazzarello always impresses me with how he can illustrate these timeless characters that I have seen a lot of and continue to make me want to look them more. These beloved characters are interesting and humorous on their own but Mazzarello intensifies that by making the characters and their settings lively and entertaining.

Like I have said several times now, I will read every issue of Disney comics IDW can publish and enjoy every single one of them. Some are enjoyable while some are amazing, but they are all delightful to read in my opinion. This is definitely one of those issues that is amusing and provided several minutes of easy-reading with some of my favorite characters. This issue didn’t amaze me like the other IDW Disney issue did from this week, but if you are a fan of Disney and especially if you are a fan of Disney comics, it is well worth the buy and well worth the read.
