- Full Description
Modern America knows Mickey Mouse as the smiling, benevolent face of the Disney empire but in the early years of his creation, in the hallowed mid-1930s, Mickey was an intrepid adventurer who blazed a bold trail that few strip characters followed. Rendered by the masterful hand of Floyd Gottfredson, a creator as talented and admired as Carl Barks is, these tales find Mickey racing Peg Leg Pete to a gold-mine, clearing his name for a bank robbery and even climbing into a boxing ring to take on a heavyweight champion.
This is the original Mouse, a spunky, bright little fellow who used his wits to outwit far larger and quite dangerous opponents. These iconic adventure strips have never been collected in English before. Loaded with essays and special features!
In Book Two Mickey is back for another round of thrills, chills, and epic quests--taking him from the depths of teeming jungles to the halls of spooky Blaggard Castle. The classic bad guys are here, too, with arch-enemy Pegleg Pete joined for this book by the mysterious "Bill Shakespeare" and hypnosis-happy Professors Ecks, Doublex, and Triplex!
Plus cool extra features by noted Mickey experts.
Fantagraphics has packaged volume 1 and 2 into a handsome slipcase. It's nicely illustrated and a perfect way to protect and store the first two releases.
