Back to the Klondike original cover

Uncle Scrooge #2 (originally printed as Four Color Comics #456) contained the original printing of "Back to the Klondike", which was later adapted as the DuckTales episode of the same name.

This article is about the comic book. For the character, see Scrooge McDuck.

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.

Several of the stories Carl Barks wrote for Uncle Scrooge in the 1950s and 1960s would be adapted into animation as episodes of DuckTales. In turn, after the cancellation of the Disney Comics DuckTales title, several issues of Uncle Scrooge ran DuckTales stories, some of which were reprints from the Gladstone title, DuckTales Magazine, and Disney Adventures, but there were also DuckTales stories previously unpublished in the United States.
