Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Color Sundays Gift Box Set by Floyd Gottfredson - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesMickey MouseFloyd GottfredsonDisney 25 Oct 2013 1:36 PM

2012 Eisner Award Winner: Best Archival Collection/Project – Strips

2012 Harvey Award Nominee: Best Domestic Reprint Project

"Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse... by Floyd Gottfredson will be warmly received by comics aficionados but should also intrigue Disney animation buffs who aren’t necessarily plugged into comic strip history… I have a feeling that this book, crafted with such obvious care, will earn Gottfredson a new legion of admirers." – Leonard Maltin

"Gottfredson drew Mickey with a nosy snout and the bright eyes of an adrenalin junkie. The mouse’s diminutive size inspired Gottfredson to have the character attempt daredevil races, leaping stunts, and develop a flurry-fisted fighting style.... This beautiful volume gives the Great Rodent his humanity." – Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

"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." – Rich Clabaugh, Christian Science Monitor

"Gottfredson's strips are jammed with incident and detail, energized with a loopy energy that matches the spunky determination of Mickey himself.... The quite visible specter of the Depression and occasional dark humor, as when Mickey tries multiple times to kill himself and fails comically, only add to the sense of heroic grit." – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Color Sundays Vol. 2 by Floyd Gottfredson - Photoset Preview
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under previewsnew releasesMickey MouseFloyd GottfredsonDisney 25 Oct 2013 1:35 PM

"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 (1931)

Praise for Vol. 1:

"What I really took away from this book... was Gottfredson's considerable (and very nuanced) compositional and storytelling skills...an entertaining read and still a thrill to see what Gottfredson work out and then master this longer styled-format. Disney fans — or just fans of solid, entertaining comics in general — won't be disappointed." – Chris Mautner, Robot 6

"The lighter approach makes this book a better choice to share with your young ones. They should love the timeless highjinks of the mouse and his friends. And anyone can appreciate the skilled cartooning and astounding art, so well-done it almost seems to move on paper." – Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading

Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2   • Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 by Leslie Stein This is the second book collecting Leslie Stein's loose, funny and charming autobiographical narratives that combine idiosyncratic fantasy and stark reality. Larrybear, our hero, has moved from the countryside to the city, where she finds work as a shop girl. Stein's gorgeous cartooning, highlighted by incredibly detailed stippling, and her dry sense of humor combine to make one of the most unique and immersive narrative experiences in comics.
   
The End of the Fucking World  • The End of the Fucking World by Charles Forsman In his debut graphic novel, Forsman follows James and Alyssa, two runaway teenagers. James exhibits a rapidly forming, violent sociopathy that threatens both of their futures, while Alyssa remains blinded by young love. Forsman's story highlights the disdain, fear and existential search that many teenagers fear, but through a road trip drama that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye. The End of the Fucking World is certain to be one of the most talked-about graphic novels of 2013.

Child of Tomorrow   • Child of Tomorrow and Other Stories by Al Feldstein Al Feldstein is best known as the main writer/editor of the EC Comics and Mad Magazine but what many don't remember is that Feldstein was also an accomplished and distinctive cartoonist. His powerfully composed, meticulously inked pages, often featuring grotesque creatures or scenes of ghastly destruction, were a vital part of the allure of these classic comics. This collection features things from outer space, flying saucers, robots and the end of the world! Plus a new interview with Feldstein! Not available in stores until August.

We’re jumping from black and white to classic color — as Mickey Mouse makes his Sunday strip debut! Bright hues highlight our hero as he races through action-packed epics... taking him from Uncle Mortimer’s Inferno Gulch ranch to the icy peak of frigid Mount Fishflake! Back home in Mouseton, Mickey welcomes a famous co-star — Donald Duck — and nearly lives to regret it!

Floyd Gottfredson, artist of the Sunday Mickey Mouse from 1932-38, created the most famous Mickey tales ever told in print.

Collectively, they form a group that fans have been seeking for a lifetime!

Highlights include "Mickey’s Nephews," introducing Morty and Ferdie Fieldmouse, and "Dr. Oofgay’s Secret Serum," which turns Horace Horsecollar into a brainwashed wild mustang! Classic gag stories round out the book, offering manic Mouse mischief at a fever pitch.

Restored from Disney’s line art sources and enhanced with an eye-popping recreation of the strips' original color, Call of the Wild also brings you more than 40 pages of chromatic supplementary features!
