Scrooge McDuck Wikia

This page describes content which was not licensed by all relevant copyright-holders, nor created by an established official creator. A Kind of Magic is an unofficial comic story written and drawn by Sarah Jolley. It features Magica De Spell, Gladstone Gander, Scrooge McDuck and, in their debuts, librarian Yasmin and the demons Shax and Andras. Super Snooper is mentioned.


An attempt by Magica De Spell to summon the demon Shax goes wrong when the literal devil escapes his binding and goes after her, angry with the witch for having summoned him at an inopportune time. Magica is forced to seek out Gladstone Gander, hoping his luck will be enough to protect the both of them from the upset abomination.



Behind the scenes

This story is one of a series of unofficial homages to the characters written and drawn by Sarah Jolley (author of the acclaimed comic The Property of Hate). It was released in 2017 for free on the Internet.

The story contains three minor nods at other fandoms to which Jolley belongs: the librarian has a Moomin plush on her desk in one panel, and Sonic Screwdrivers (from Doctor Who) and the Umbrastaff (from The Adventure Zone) are mentioned in Magica's spellbook as types of artifact comparable to Magic Wands, alongside regular Staves.
