“Anyone who ventures into this gorgeous tome will come away with a fresh appreciation for just what made Mickey an all-American comic-strip hero.” — Time Out New York
“Gottfredson’s comics are energized with a loopy energy that matches the spunky determination of Mickey himself. Running pell-mell from one dangerous escapade to the next, Mickey is all spit and fire as he confronts louts like Pegleg Pete and protects Minnie.” — Publishers Weekly
“Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse is a treasure of modern American culture — a reminder that, once in a while, the most popular thing is the best thing.” — SF Weekly
“This Mickey is a feisty, wisecracking daredevil. Gottfredson’s charmingly old-fashioned drawings accentuate the gags and briskly propel the plotlines.” — Booklist
