Ya still think it pays to fight dirty? No bad guys can beat Walt Disney's classic Mickey; no other modest mouse has seen more two-fisted action or outrageous comedy! And now our big-eared hero is back with more edge-of-your-seat adventures: traveling from Umbrellastan to Texas and duking it out with villains like Dr. Vulter, Pegleg Pete, and malicious miser Eli Squinch!
Floyd Gottfredson, artist and writer of Mickey Mouse, turned the strip into a 100-proof cocktail of thrills, comedy, warmth, and cynicism. In this volume, youll saddle up for Gottfredsons two most famous Wild West epics: a Race for Riches amid rockslides and rustlers, then a dead-shot showdown with the brutal Bat Bandit! Back home in Mouseton, the mayhem continues when Mickey, Donald, and Goofy run a crime-fighting newspaper and face trouble with mobsters and speeding black sedans!
Lovingly restored from Disney's proof sheets, High Noon at Inferno Gulch also includes more than 50 pages of rootin-tootin supplementary features! Youll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and vivid commentary by a pistol-packin posse of seasoned Disney scholars, including a Foreword by Thomas Andrae and an appreciation by the late Bill Blackbeard.
Walt Disney often said that his studios success all started with a Mouse. Now it's time to rediscover the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon!
