The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck is a serial of 12 comic book stories written and drawn by Don Rosa. The stories chronicle the in-universe biography of Scrooge McDuck before his introduction in 1947. The stories were later collected and published together in a single volume. Rosa later published additional stories which expanded on Scrooge’s biography. These were released as The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion.

The story follows the main events of Scrooge’s life between 1877 and 1947, including almost all references found in Carl Barks stories about Scrooge’s life until 1947 but leaving some room for Rosa and other creators to add more details later. The comic also provides information on the backgrounds and origins of many characters related to Scrooge.
