Praise for the Series:
2012 Eisner Award Winner: Best Archival Collection/Project – Strips
2012 Harvey Award Nominee: Best Domestic Reprint Project
"A revelation. As in his
contemporaneous animated cartoons, this Mickey is a feisty, wisecracking daredevil... Gottfredson’s charmingly old-fashioned drawings accentuate the gags
and briskly propel the plotlines."
– Gordon Flagg, Booklist
" I have a feeling that this book,
crafted with such obvious care, will earn Gottfredson a new legion
of admirers." – Leonard Maltin
"From the beautifully reproduced strips to the densely packed
ancillary features, this must be the book that editors David Gerstein
and Fantagraphics’ co-founder Gary Groth wanted for years for their
own libraries. Their enthusiasm shows in the wonderfully designed
package. This book is highly recommended for any Disney fan and fans of America's rich comic strip history." – Rich Clabaugh, Christian Science Monitor
Praise for the Mouse:
“Great lover, scholar, soldier, sailor, singer, toreador, tycoon, jockey, prizefighter, automobile racer,
aviator, farmer. Mickey Mouse lives in a world in which space, time, and the law of physics are nil. He
can reach inside of a bull’s mouth, pull out his teeth and use them as castanets. He can lead a band or
play violin solos; his ingenuity is limitless; he never fails.” — Time Magazine (1931)
