James Sturm pens this richly evocative graphic novel set in the 1920s. The Stars of David, a barnstorming Jewish baseball team, travel from town to town earning a living by playing local squads. They all sport beards, a gimmick to attract patrons but when financial difficulties threaten to end their season they cast their lot with a Chicago promoter who has just seen the hugely successful German silent film Der Golem... With the golem, a baseball game is transformed into a mythical pageant. Fear and curiosity fills the stadium, but it also stokes the flames of anti-Semitism. Winning the game for the Stars of David becomes less important then surviving it. With a sepia-tinted cinematic style, this compelling book reminds us that making it home is at the heart of baseball.

Though non-canonical as such, the story appears to take take place in a universe where a number of Carl Barks's stories (up to 1958) happened, allowing 12 years' gap between the last Barks story and the events of Return to Duckburg Place. Post-1958 stories notably appear null and void, with no trace of Magica De Spell in the apocalyptic Duckburg; reference is made to "grisly" events happening as early as 1962...
