These comics take place in the latter half of the 1930's with a Mickey that's a little more edgy than some might expect. In one story Mickey plays a prank on his rival Mortimer Mouse by betting him $1 he can knock him down without touching him. Mortimer lowers his chin allowing Mickey to deck him with a haymaker. Mickey then tosses him the dollar having lost the bet. I happen to like this Mickey more than the squeaky clean adventure Mickey in the dailies. When it comes to extras Mickey's collection dominates poor Donald. There are essays at the beginning and ending of the book and analysis of the comics starting each chapter. I also am a much bigger fan of the covers of the Gottfredson collection. In fact this series is one of the most gorgeous on my bookshelf.Read more ›
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. But what was frustrating, was that while Carl Barks materials were reprinted completely several times (and now are again being reprinted by Fantagraphics), no one had done a comprehensive reprint of Gottfredson's work. Until now.
Fantagraphics started off doing volumes reprinting the dailies. They have done 4 of what should be 15 total (the fifth is on the way). But it seemed there were no plans on doing the Sundays. The attitude seemed to be that the Sundays were only gag strips. Many don't realize that in the early days of comic strips, sometimes dailies and Sundays had different story lines. And for some characters, the Sundays were sometimes standalone gag strips. Only later was it the style to merge dailies and Sundays into a single storyline, but some strips never even did that.
However, I had several Mickey Mouse adventure stories taken from the Sundays. So I knew it wasn't true. And while Gottfredson worked on the dailies for many years, he only did the Sundays for about 4 years. Thus the Sundays will be done in 2 volumes.
The Sunday volumes follow the same size and format as the dailies.Read more ›

Vintage Gottfredson, not much more one can say.
Except that Fantagraphics has been doing a great job with the Mickey series and the Barks ducks.
The early Mickey Mouse newspaper strips were really adventure strips and very well done. The book arrived quickly and in nice condition.Published on March 3, 2014 by johncehrmannjr
