Uncle Scrooge is a long-running comic book starring Scrooge McDuck. It began publication in March of 1952, when then-current Disney comic publisher Dell Comics decided to give the character a try-out as a lead character in their Four Color Comics anthology series. After three Four Color issues labeled with the Uncle Scrooge title, Scrooge was granted his own title starting with issue number #4 (counting the try-out issues as one through three). The first 70 issues mostly consisted of stories written and drawn by Scrooge's creator, Carl Barks. Uncle Scrooge continued to be published by Dell's successor, Gold Key Comics, and later under Gladstone Publishing (twice), Disney Comics, Gemstone Publishing, Boom! Studios, and currently, IDW Publishing.
