Dr. X-Files: In this collection of the newspaper strip, Goofy goes missing…and turns up in a mysterious government lab! This climactic book of Gottfredson serials also finds Mickey plagued by Uncle Gudger, the one-man circus―and Gilhooley, the pitiless king of the leprechauns!

Seven complete stories, plus three Gottfredson Christmas stories from 1963-65.

Hired as a short-term replacement on the fledgling Mickey Mouse daily strip in 1930, Floyd Gottfredson (1905-1986) went on to draw the feature for the next 45 years. He created the most famous Mickey tales ever told in print. He is a Disney Legend and was inducted into the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 2006.

David Gerstein is a comic book writer/editor and animation historian specializing in the Disney Standard Characters. His books include Mickey and the Gang: Classic Stories in Verse and Walt Disney Treasures-Disney Comics: 70 Years of Innovation. Here he provides more fascinating behind-the-scenes material on the artist and the strip. Johnathan Gray provides an Appreciation, we are treated to Gottfredson's painting, "MM Outwits the Phantom Blot," and more.

The special Christmas stories, roughly ten pages each, feature The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, and Bambi, in new holiday tales written by Frank Reilly and drawn by Gottfredson.
