Details

DON ROSA is one of the world’s most popular cartoonists. For over 20 years he kept up the duck universe of his idol Carl Barks with his stories about Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck and the Beagle Boys Inc. He is adored for his detailed duck adventures. His biography, Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, earned him immortality and an Eisner Award, the world’s most important comics prize.

But who is the man behind the ducks? “I still get Chills!” knows the answers. It is published in honour of Don Rosa‘s 66th and Scrooge McDuck’s 70th birthday. German public broadcast journalist, Alex Jakubowski, and Lois Lammerhuber, one of the best photographers of his generation, spent a lot of time with the star cartoonist on his fantastic, remote home in the wide reaches of Kentucky. Surrounded by one of the largest comics collections in North America, White Castle fast food memorabilia, amazing libraries of books, films and CDs, countless huge monitors, exquisite vintage cars and an enviable pinball collection, they talked for days in the artist’s studio, traced Don Rosa’s childhood on trips to Louisville and discovered the many facets of a man who has become almost as legendary as a passionate collector as he has for his art as a cartoonist.

And what’s more: Don Rosa himself lent a hand with this book, commenting on photos and drawings, creating typical Don Rosa quotes and turning it into a unique Don Rosa work.

Reviews

Der Tagesspiegel open_in_new

Christian Schröder: „I Still Get Chills!“ heißt ein opulenter Prachtband, der nun, passend zum runden Geburtstag, Dagobert und Don Rosa feiert. Im Titel steckt ein Wortspiel, das die lebenslange Begeisterung des Zeichners für das Medium Comic beschreibt und andererseits auf die Chili-Pflanzen verweist, die er auf seiner Farm bei Louisville in Kentucky züchtet. Das Buch ist eine überformatige Home-Story, in kurzen Hosen und manchmal mit einem altmodischen Tropenhelm auf dem Halbglatzkopf führt der Hausherr durch das zehn Hektar große Anwesen, das er mit seiner Frau teilt.

Frankfurter Neue Presse open_in_new

Enrico Sauda: „Bilder haben es ihm angetan. Er arbeitet für die laufenden Bilder, ist bei den öffentlich-rechtlichen als Fernsehjournalist tätig und schwärmt für die bunten Bilder in Comics. Nun hat Alex Jakubowski sich einen Traum erfüllt und einen der bekanntesten Comic-Zeichner der Welt getroffen: Don Rosa . Der 47-Jährige Frankfurter jettete mit Verleger und Star-Fotograf Lois Lammerhuber über den großen Teich nach Kentucky und verbrachte eine Woche im Domizil des extravaganten Enten-Zeichners.”
