Disney's greatest villain steals the spotlight! The deadly Phantom Blot — a master thief clad in a ghostly black cloak — is turning Mouseton upside down in search of seemingly ordinary box cameras. But why? Mickey's determined to find out if it kills him... and it just might!
Floyd Gottfredson, artist of Mickey Mouse from 1930-1975 and creator of the Phantom Blot, produced the most exciting Mouse tales ever told in print! "[Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse] is not just a great Mickey Mouse comic, it's one of the best comics of all time." (Chris Sims, Comics Alliance)
And the Blot's epic mayhem is just the start! Our latest book also finds Mickey battling "Mighty Whale Hunter" Pegleg Pete on the high seas — and turning "Plumber's Helper" for a job with the infamous Joe Piper! Then "Miracle Master" Mickey meets a powerful genie... and tries to save his ancient homeland from modern-day disaster!
Lovingly restored from Disney's original negatives and proof sheets, Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot also includes more than 30 pages of dark, spooky extras! You'll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and fascinating commentary by a most-wanted list of Disney scholars.
Mickey Mouse is among the world's most recognizable icons. But do you know the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon? Start reading... you might be wearing mouse ears before you're through.
