“The Case of the Saucer Impostor!” O.K. Quack’s coin-shaped spaceship can shrink to the size of a real coin—and since Scrooge McDuck spent it and lost it, he’s forced to help Humphrey Gokart, ace detective, find it!

I’m always happy to read a little Scrooge action, even going back to the days when I pooh-poohed “funnybooks” for the serious comics I preferred. This issue has one loopy story, one sweet two-parter and the first half of something that could be a real barn-burner, so it definitely gets my recommendation.Matthew's Thoughts
Some mid-80s Scrooge McDuck right here ladies and gentlemen. Fun, kid-friendly fare, with just a hint of magic and flying saucers – what’s not to like?Stephen's Thoughts
