Keno Don Rosa (born June 29, 1951) is an American comic book artist and writer. He is probably best known for Disney comics featuring Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck, following his childhood fascination with the work of Carl Barks.

As a fan

Before creating Disney comics in an official capacity, Rosa was an amateur artist who contributed to comic and Star Trek fanzines. In 1970 he published the fan comic Return to Duckburg Place, a dark parody he illustrated and co-wrote. He contributed fan art and an article about Uncle Scrooge comics to Fandom Annual #3 (1972).[1] From 1974 to 1979 he wrote and illustrated the Information Center column in Rocket's Blast Comicollector, a fanzine in which he also serialized his own adventure comic The Pertwillaby Papers and for which he contributed several covers.[2] He was a chair of the 1976 Omnicon.
