- Full Description
Volume 1: Fantagraphics launches a new series of books devoted to Disney's greatest European cartoonists, beginning with this volume of Mickey Mouse classics drawn by the great Italian artist, Romano Scarpa! Volume 2: This spotlights one of the all-time great Disney Duck artists, Luciano Bottaro! When Scrooge rockets his money to the moon to save it from the greedy Beagle Boys, Donald Duck accidentally stows away — and gets stranded on an asteroid! Two volumes in handsome slipcase.
When Disney Legend Floyd Gottfredson stopped creating new Mickey Mouse adventures in 1955, Italian Disney maestro Romano Scarpa (1927–2005) picked up the Mickey mantle — he quickly proved himself a worthy successor, spinning out decades’ worth of new Mickey action epics — most of which have never been available in English! Now Fantagraphics is translating and anthologizing Scarpa’s best!
Contents of Volume 1: When Mickey’s town is hit by a blizzard of strange glowing snow, everyone thinks it’s a publicity stunt. But genius Dr. Einmug knows better: Pegleg Pete is on the loose with Einmug’s weather-control secrets! Only Mickey and Einmug’s mysterious companion — the odd little Atomo Bleep-Bleep — can save the day before a poison rainstorm wipes Mouseton off the map! This volume also reunites Mickey, Atomo, and Pete for Scarpa’s “The Bleep-Bleep 15” and “The Fabulous Kingdom of Shan-Grilla,” two internationally famous tales making their North American debut!
Contents of Volume 2: With Rebo, Warlord King of Saturn, suddenly in the picture, can Donald save himself and rescue Scrooge’s fortune? Italian comics maestro Luciano Bottaro (1931–2005), building on the Carl Barks tradition, spun wild, thrilling, and near-psychedelic Duckburg tales for decades! Now Fantagraphics brings Bottaro’s best Disney works to the English-speaking world — starting with Rebo, Bottaro’s great sci-bad guy!
After Rebo’s first feature-length battle with Donald and Scrooge in “Uncle Scrooge’s Money Rocket,” the avaricious alien is back from outer space in “Rebo Reducks,” this volume’s second cosmic epic. Then Bottaro pits Scrooge against Carl Barks’s beloved Witch Hazel in “TV Trickery!” This is the second of our new Disney Masters series, spotlighting one of Disney’s most beloved Italian cartoonists!
