This collection is such a treasure you could buy it for children and adults and it will likely be enjoyed for years to come.

I also came to learn that the great Mickey Mouse adventure stories by Gottfredson were actually reprints of the daily and Sunday Mickey Mouse comic strips.

With Volume 3, the GOTTFREDSON LIBRARY well and truly swings into the "Golden Age" of the MICKEY MOUSE strip (button-eyed version). These strips from 1934-1936 show "creator-in-chief" Floyd Gottfredson taking full control of his stories and testing his range with tightly plotted domestic dramas and semi-dramas ("Bobo the Elephant," "Pluto the Racer," "Editor-in-Grief"), swashbuckling ocean-going adventures ("The Captive Castaways," "The Pirate Submarine"), Western sagas ("The Bat Bandit of Inferno Gulch," "Race for Riches"), and even a tentative stab at an extensive sojourn into another cultural milieu (the trip to Umbrellastan in "The Sacred Jewel"). There's literally something here for everyone, and one's favorite story will simply be a matter of taste and personal experience. For me, "Race for Riches" takes the palm, being the first Gottfredson story that I ever read, thanks to the late Bill Blackbeard's invaluable SMITHSONIAN COLLECTION OF NEWSPAPER COMICS. That early-1980s exposure predated my "deep dive" into Disney comics collecting by a couple of years, and I recall being both surprised and amazed at how much this mysterious man Gottfredson had been able to wring out of a character then universally regarded (by the vast majority of Americans, at least) as a bland corporate symbol. In retrospect, the fairly straightforward "Race," which sees Mickey and Horace Horsecollar (sharing their last "classic" adventure together) trying to beat the inevitable Pegleg Pete and the grasping Eli Squinch to a cache of hidden gold and prevent foreclosure on Clarabelle Cow's home in the process, was an ideal introduction to the world of the "death-defying, tough, steel-gutted Mouse" celebrated in Blackbeard's pioneering essay "Mickey Mouse and the Phantom Artist" (which is reprinted herein).Read more ›

This really is a wonderful time to live in for fans of classic comic strips. There seems to be an endless stream of collections with the premier editions coming from Fantagraphics. In my opinion Fantagraphics is tops in terms of presentation quality and Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse is one of the best. Fantagraphics tends to get very creative with its binding, some are a bit of a miss as with the Popeye collection which are so massive they become a challenge to put on a book shelf and I wasn't a huge fan of the die cut on the cover. Not the case with Mickey. The physical size of the book is just about perfect with tight binding and a lovely design. This is a book that you can proudly put in a bookcase for others to see. The Mickey Mouse collections are a nice balance of interesting and informative essays without going overboard and squeezing out the comics themselves.

The stories here are boilerplate for the era. Mickey at sea (twice). Mickey out west (twice). Mickey battling a mysterious phantom villain. Mickey battling mobsters. These storylines have even been done by Gottfredson in previous volumes but they never get boring even if they are somewhat derivative. "A Race for Riches" is a near carbon copy of Gottfredson's first Mickey story "Race to Death Valley" except that the story here is much better, in fact just about everything about his writing, character development and art have improved. I loved when Peg Leg Pete was strafing Mickey and Horsecollar from above shouting, "Hugs and Kisses, Haw Haw". This kind of lightness and humor is a far cry from the stale jokes Mickey was spewing in the earlier story. Another funny thing is the whole pecking order of the animals in Mickey's world.
