It's high-gear, open-throttle Gottfredson all the way in this latest volume, which covers a fertile period that sees the pupil-less Gottfredson Mouse scale his highest heights. With the exception of the ethnically dodgy and relatively uninteresting "In Search of Jungle Treasure," every continuity herein can be considered a classic. I admit that it requires something a stretch to admit "Oscar the Ostrich" into this pantheon of deathless works, but that story can certainly be considered a classic of its kind (the "Mickey unwillingly adopts a destructive animal" gambit or the "Mickey inadvertently gets in trouble with the law" trope -- your choice), and the "battle royal on the track" that wraps up the brief tale fills in the deficit of meaningful incident with all-out slapstick fun. Gottfredson gives us some of his best-realized one-shot characters -- the reclusive atom-aligner Dr. Einmug of "Island in the Sky", the corpulent Southern gentlehound Colonel Bassett of "The Seven Ghosts," the round-eared reprobate replica King Michael XIV, aka "The Monarch of Medioka" -- in these stories, even as he is making some significant moves on the chessboard in terms of realigning Mickey's stable of supporting players. In short, if you only get ONE volume in this collection covering the button-eyed period, then this is the one. (However, if you PLAN to get only one volume in this collection, then perhaps you should reconsider!)

Many folks would probably argue that "Island in the Sky," aka "The Sky Adventure," is the best continuity in this volume. It's certainly had the hardiest afterlife, as Joe Torcivia describes in great detail here. The memorable characterization of Dr.

Growing up I read many Walt Disney Comics. One of my main sources was the great "Walt Disney Comics Digest" put out by Gold Key Comics/Western Publications. I liked many of the comics they reprinted, but among the best were the "duck stories", especially the longer Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge adventures, by Carl Barks (tho like many of us, I would learn who Barks was many years later) and the Mickey Mouse stories by Floyd Gottfredson (tho it was much later that I learned their names).

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.

This then is the fourth of what should be about 15 or so volumes reprinting all the dailies (and now also Sunday) Mickey Mouse adventure strips by Gottfredson. While he worked on the strip for several decades, I believe they will only go from 1930 to 1955, when the adventure stories ended in favor of gag-a-day strips (per editorial decree). And he also only worked on the Sunday strip for about 5 years. So with about 2 years per daily volume, there should be 12 volumes of dailies and 2 of Sundays.

Each volume will follow the same basic format. A great introductory essay that gives info on the strip and the current set of stories. Then the stories, broken up into distinct storylines with some introductory info on each.

God Bless Fantagraphics. It's not just that they reproduce classic comics it's that they reproduce classic comics in a high quality, durable, aesthetically appealing manner. There are few comics more classic than Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse and this is THE BEST presentation ever. I proudly put every volume on display in my living room bookcase. In this volume Mickey returns to the secret service, joins the foreign legion, starts a detective agency to hunt ghosts, travels to Africa and becomes a prince.

As a big fan of classic comics it's hard for me to imagine a better artist than Floyd Gottfredson. Mickey has gone through a lot of alterations in appearance throughout the decades but for me this is the definitive Mickey. There is no artist I know of with cleaner more consistent lines than Gottfredson. Writing wise I put would put him among the greats but not at the top. I think his contemporary E.C. Segar was a better storyteller. Unlike most comic artists Gottfredson was not the creator of Mickey but was a company artist for Disney so to some degree he was constrained in what he could do. Fellow Disney artist Carl Barks of Donald Duck fame was in a similar situation inheriting anothers creation but Barks made the ducks more his own and his stories were more inventive. What makes Gottfredson special for me is that he is able to take well trodden storylines and infuse them with his own magic so that in the end I actually slightly prefer Gottfredson to Barks. To me these stories are the quintessential essence of Disney. There is an innocence here that doesn't feel manufactured as is often the case with Disney.
