Don Rosa to make an appearance in the southwest!

  Well known in American comics fandom since the 1960’s for his vast comic
book collection and comics fanzine activities, Rosa became internationally
famous starting in 1987 when he began writing and drawing “Uncle $crooge”
and “Donald Duck” comics for various licensed publishers in Europe. Just as
they once were in America, Donald Duck comics (based on Carl Barks’ work)
continue to be the best selling comics in Europe and South America where the
weekly (!) Donald Duck comics have been read by hundreds of millions of fans
for over 60 years. This makes Rosa one of the world’s best known
cartoonists, but still very easy to visit with at American shows where he
can relax in “relative obscurity”. American comics fans are mostly familiar
with his most famous work, the Eisner Award winning “Life and Times of
$crooge McDuck” series. But American fans can also now see his entire Duck
comics career reprinted chronologically in the new DON ROSA LIBRARY from
Fantagraphics. Rosa has quit producing new Duck comics due to several
reasons, but he stays very busy with signing tours to Europe, visits to
American comic cons, and his many hobbies including growing exotic chile
peppers, of which he is even now probably giving away bags in the convention

Ken Kristensen Returns To Tucson!

We are happy to announce that Ken Kristensen, co-creator and writer of the smash hit “Todd The Ugliest Kid On Earth”, will be returning to the Tucson Comic Con this year!


Ken loved Tucson so much, that after the convention ended last year, he told us he wanted to return again.

We are really ecstatic about him returning to Arizona and I’m sure all the fans feel the same way.

A collision of comedy, sex, and violence, follows the misadventures of America’s most dysfunctional family as they go head-to-severed head with an Oprah-loving ax murderer, a cult-crazy soap opera star, and a neo-Nazi prison gang.

Also check out the following reviews by Comic Book Therapy:
