From the Disney vaults--fourteen more never-before reprinted Sunday Page comics adaptations of popular Disney animated and live-action features. Swiss Family Robinson, Kidnapped, 101 Dalmations, The Parent Trap, Toby Tyler, Darby O'Gill and the Little People, In Search of the Castaways, and Babes in Toyland! Frank Reiller adapted every feature; all but 4 are drawn by long-time Tarzan Comics artist Jesse Marsh. After over 50 years, the complete newspaper strips are collected for the first time!
101 Dalmations is drawn by Bill Wright (Jan 1-8), with layouts by Floyd Gottfredson, and by Chuck Fusion, pencils, and Manuel Gonzales, inks, for January 15-March 26. In Search of the Cataways and Bon Voyage are drawn by John Ushler and Babes in Toyland by Joseph H. Hale.
Renowned fan and professional writer Frank Reilly (Funnyworld, Fanfare, The Smithsonian Book of Comic Book Comics) provides the introduction, along with eleven wonderful half-page-sized reproductions of the posters for the original films.
"[This Sunday page feature] was always one of the most sensitive barometers of how priorities were changing at Walt Disney Studios--Walt Disney's own priorities, especially."
"Most noticeably, animated cartoons, once the Disney studio's whole reason for being, were by the late 1950s sharing the spotlight increasingly with love-action films of various kinds--the nature films called True-Life Adventures, historical dramas, and black-and-white comedies that rivaled the most popular television shows. "
"Cartoons were well-represented among the earliest Treasury entries...[but now] dominating the book instead are adaptations of such live-action films as Pollyana and Swiss Family Robinson. The True-to-Life Adventures were by 1960 leaving the stage, to be replaced by fictional stories played by remarkable animal actors: Nikki, Wild Dog of the North, represented here, was one of the first.”
