Life and careerEdit
Rota was born in Milan. His first comic work, Steve Morgan il trappolatore, was published in 1958 in the magazine Collana Scudo. During the 1960s, he drew stories of Superman and Batman, as well as erotic comics.
Rota 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" Temerary, Donald's dark age Scottish alter ego; as well as the 1984 story From Egg To Duck (Italian: Buon compleanno, Paperino!, lit. 'Happy birthday, Donald!'), Donald's biography.
