Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse - Floyd Gottfredson

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse by Floyd Gottfredson, in two volumes, showcases Gottfredson’s classic 1930s Mickey Mouse. Walt Disney often said that his studio’s success “all started with a mouse” ― and today Mickey is among the world’s most recognizable icons in the world. "Race to Death Valley" the premiere volume, features a dozen different adventures starring Mickey, his gal Minnie and her uncle Mortimer, his pals Horace Horsecollar and Butch, the villainous Pegleg Pete, and the mysterious and shrouded Fox. "Trapped on Treasure Island": “Oh, for gosh sakes!” is back for another round of thrills, chills, and epic quests ― taking Mickey from the depths of teeming jungles to the halls of spooky Blaggard Castle. Mickey’s classic Disney bad guys are here, too, with arch-enemy Pegleg Pete joined for this book by the mysterious “Bill Shakespeare” and hypnosis-happy Professors Ecks, Doublex, and Triplex! Gottfredson’s vibrant visual storytelling has never been more beautifully reproduced; we promise the best reprinting the strip has ever seen, with each daily lovingly restored from Disney’s original negatives and proof sheets. Both volumes also include more than 50 pages of fascinating supplementary features, including rare behind-the-scenes art and vintage publicity material from the first two years of the strip. Critics, scholars, seasoned Disney archivists, and fellow cartoonists provide commentary and historical essays on the strip’s creation and execution. Colour and black-and-white comic strips throughout
