Here is a gorgeous copy of the very first UNCLE SCROOGE in his own title - a sought-after treasure from 1952 - Dell Four Color #386. Carl Barks' creation of the unimaginably wealthy, but cantankerous, uncle of Donald and his nephews had debuted 10 years earlier in an issue of DONALD DUCK. Barks found the character and his wealth a useful springboard for stories and re-used him in a number of subsequent Donald Duck one-shot adventures and ten pagers appearing in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories_._ But by 1952 the popularity of the character convinced Dell to give Scrooge a try-out as a lead character in the seminal "Only a Poor Old Man" in Dell's _Four Color_ anthology series, a story Barks expert Michael Barrier has termed a masterpiece.
Here in Dell Four Color #386 - the first comic with UNCLE SCROOGE's name as the title - you get 36 full ad-free pages of Carl Barks' masterful storytelling and appealing artwork. In "Only a Poor Old Man', the Beagle Boys erect a building next to Scrooge's money bin, with plans to puncture the bin and drain out the money. But Scrooge secretly transfers his money to an old reservoir, where he hides it underwater. Learning of this stratagem, the Beagle Boys try to destroy a dam so that Scrooge's money will flow onto their land!
