Marco Rota in Helsinki

Marco Rota (born September 18, 1942) is a prominent Italian Disney comic artist who served as editor-in-chief of Disney Italia from 1974 to 1988.

Rota was born in Milan.

Career

His first comic work was published in 1958. During the 1960s, he drew Superman, Batman, and erotic comics. He made his first Disney comic using the Mickey Mouse character in 1971. He would go on, however, to work primarily with Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck stories. His most well-known Disney-related work is Andold "Wild Duck" Temporary, Donald's dark age Scottish alter ego; as well as the story From Egg To Duck, Donald's biography (written in honor of Donald's 50th anniversary in 1984), which has been reprinted numerous times in many different countries, and still gets reprinted on a regular basis.

In addition to working with established characters, Rota also does original work. He currently works for the Danish publisher Egmont.
