Disney’s greatest villain steals the spotlight! The vile Phantom Blot — dressed head-to-foot in his ghostly black cloak — is turning Mouseton upside down and leaving a trail of danger and destruction behind! Can Mickey thwart his plans? Our latest book also finds Mickey battling "Mighty Whalehunter" Pegleg Pete on the high seas and meeting a powerful genie! Lovingly restored from Disney's original proof sheets, this volume also includes more than 30 pages of extras! You'll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and fascinating commentary by a most-wanted list of Disney scholars. Walt Disney often said that his studio's success "all started with a Mouse" — now it’s time to rediscover the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon: Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse. Edited by Disney historian David Gerstein and Gary Groth.

Praise for the Series:

Eisner Award Winner SealHarvey Award Nominee Logo2012 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)
