UNCLE $CROOGE AND THE INFINITY DIME Will Be Marvel And Disney’s First True Comic Book Crossover

As we first reported on Toonado.com, this June will see one of fiction’s most legendary adventurers will star in his first-ever Marvel comic book, Uncle $crooge and the Infinity Dime, representing an unheralded Marvel Comics and Disney collaboration.

The one-shot will be written by prolific Marvel writer Jason Aaron, known for penning some of the Avengers, Wolverine, and Thor’s most pivotal modern sagas. Aaron will team up with a cadre of celebrated Scrooge artists to masterfully blend the beloved world of Uncle Scrooge with the hallmarks of Marvel Comics storytelling. 

Since he debuted nearly 80 years ago in Carl Barks’ legendary Christmas on Bear Mountain comic, Scrooge has maintained a treasured spot in comic book history, headlining many successful solo series before taking over the rest of pop culture with his various memorable appearances in animation.

Scrooges’ unique legacy in the industry – as well as the types of exploits he’s famous for – arguably make him the perfect candidate to headline Marvel Comics’ first foray into the imagination of Disney’s comic books. 

Uncle $crooge and the Infinity Dime #1 will see Scrooge embark on a time-honoured 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.

“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 shared. “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.”
