^I assume the material for the last hardcover and the next are the only ones Fanta have colorized, so they were limited to those stories.
Hello from Amazon.ca.
We wanted to let you know there's a delay with one or more items in the order you placed on May 31, 2012 (Order# -----------------------------).
Carl Barks "Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: "Only a Poor Old Man""
Estimated ship date: January 08, 2013
My amazon reviews, check them out sometime!
^I wouldn't read too much into it. Like I said: Fantagraphics doesn't have official release dates, they have estimates. Fanta's site says June, amazon.com says July 17. My guess: sometime this summer.
Also, amazon is famous for giving wildly off-base time estimates.
EDIT: Oops Sorry for double post
On Scrooge: July 17th would be a worst case scenario, I reckon. Still bet on it being available before June ends.
Also, I would really appreciate if Fantagraphics kept more of a momentum going...it's been months since we knew anything about the book, no new interviews with Gary Groth/Kim Thompson on the series or anything...Since we're aiming at a more mainstream audience with these series, surely being quiet for this long wouldn't provide the best results?
Triple post, but this time I come with actual news! Fantagraphics has finally updated Only A Poor Old Man's page, including the usual video preview and a 18-page downloadable excerpt. If history repeats itself, it won't take long for the actual book to become available after these 2 teasers have been released. Enjoy!
Of note is that it seems the book's no longer separated by Long Stories, 10 Pagers and 1-Page-Gags.

I believe it's supposed to ship next Wednesday. At least Midtown Comics shows it on their ship list.

Well, the volume's been in stock from Fantagraphics for some days now...But when is Amazon.com gonna follow suit, I wonder?
^Yeah, I was going to order it with an Atomic Robo volume so's I could get free shipping (Like Scrooge, I'm thrifty).
If it takes too long I'll get antsy.
I picked up a copy on Wednesday. Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but, like the Donald book, it's pretty.
All-Star Western, Casanova, Criminal, Daredevil, Dark Horse Presents, Funnies, Hellboy/BPRD, King City, Orc Stain, Snarked, Unwritten, Usagi Yojimbo
Anyone care to share impressions about the book, fellow fans?
this Wikipedia listing. No Donald stories, obviously.
Amazon to have the volume in stock this Thursday!
