  • Comments:

    Scrooge earns his first dime and scares the Whiskerwilles so that they flee Dismal Downs, before he in the end goes to America.

    Don Rosa's own comments about this story can be read at Dan Shane's great The Life and Times of $crooge McDuck pages.

    Interesting facts:

    The two first chapters of Lo$ were published in an extra enclosure to DD&Co in Norway and AA&Co in Denmark. Such extra magazines are very seldom enclosed with KA&Co in Sweden, so the two first chapters were actually skipped in Sweden, leaving chapter 3 as the first part of the saga. The first two chapters were eventually also published in Sweden in the 1997 hardcover book.

    Don Rosa did a special cover for the Norwegian news-paper Aftenposten's Saturday-magazine "A-Magasinet" #43/1992 which also included a large article/interview with Don Rosa about the Lo$ series.

    Note: The interior of the McDuck Castle, as seen in this story, is inspired by the interior of Camelot as seen in a 1942-strip of the comic classic "Prince Valiant in the days of King Arthur" by Harold R. Foster.
