“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

When Mickey’s best pal Goofy vanishes without a trace, even crazy Cousin Clabberwort can’t find him — till he turns up in a government lab, packing a genius IQ and a pet pygmy cow! Just what does Mouseton’s dippiest dawg—now known as “Dr. X”—have in store for the world? Does Mickey dare to find out? This climactic book of Gottfredson serials also finds Mickey plagued by Uncle Gudger, the one-man circus—and Gilhooley, the pitiless king of the leprechauns! Floyd Gottfredson and co-writer Bill Walsh infect Mouseton with the super-hi-tech of the Sputnik era, in this final volume of narrative Mickey strips.
Restored from Disney’s original proof sheets, The Mysterious Dr. X also includes more than 30 pages of top-secret extras! You’ll enjoy behind-the-scenes art, Gottfredson’s rare Christmas comics, and commentary by Disney’s own scientific geniuses!
