Floyd Gottfredson, David Gerstein

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse "Trapped On Treasure Island": Volume 2

On sale date: October 31, 2011

The comics that defined the Mouse!

"Oh, for gosh sakes!" Floyd Gottfredson's classic 1930s Mickey Mouse is back for another round of thrills, chills, and epic quests — taking him from the depths of teeming jungles to the halls of spooky Blaggard Castle. Mickey's classic Disney bad guys are here, too, with arch-enemy Pegleg Pete joined for this book by the mysterious "Bill Shakespeare" and hypnosis-happy Professors Ecks, Doublex, and Triplex!

Floyd Gottfredson, artist of Mickey Mouse from 1930-1975, made it the most popular cartoon-based comic of its time. Unafraid to tackle social satire and grown-up action-adventure, Gottfredson produced a Mouse for all ages. Today as Disney's Epic Mickey video game brings Mickey's gutsy side to a new medium. Fantagraphics' Mickey Mouse series shows just how long Mickey has been a hero! In this book you'll relive Mickey's fight with pirates on desolate Treasure Island; his quest with Goofy to catch ruthless counterfeiters; and his battles to save windy Horace Horsecollar from mad scientists, a robbery frame-up — and himself!

Lovingly restored from Disney's original negatives and proof sheets, Mickey Mouse: Trapped on Treasure Island also includes more than 50 pages of fascinating supplementary features. You'll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and vivid commentary by a full team of seasoned Disney scholars. Walt Disney often said that his studio's success "all started with a mouse" — and today Mickey is among the world's most recognizable icons in the world. Now it's time to rediscover the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon: Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse.

Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse "Trapped On Treasure Island": Volume 2 is part of the The Complete Floyd Gottfredson Library series.

Praise

"…[A] revelation. As in his contemporaneous animated cartoons, this Mickey is a feisty, wisecracking daredevil… Gottfredson's charmingly old-fashioned drawings accentuate the gags and briskly propel the plotlines." — Gordon Flagg - Booklist

"The stories are dense, packing plenty of dialogue into the strips — and the themes are darker than the bright-eyed, factory-sealed tales of today.... The reproduction is crisp — the black inks are meticulous in their separation…. This dynamic look is a revelation in the life of the character who started it all for Disney." — Alex Carr - Omnivoracious (Amazon.com)

"Gottfredson's comics are as classy, funny and as slick as the Disney shorts from the same period.... A fine package, a full meal, and a perfect follow-up to volume 1, Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 2: Trapped on Treasure Island fills a gap long-neglected in animation history. Buy it." — Jerry Beck - Cartoon Brew

"Can you believe that the tapioca-plain Mickey Mouse was… once a high-spirited adventurer...? He was in the original comic strips... It's one of the classics." — David Allen - Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

"Over time, Mickey's personality becomes more refined…; scrappier, tougher and more determined to seek justice (or an adventure) regardless of the odds. …[T]his series is rich with detail, both in the strip itself and in the editorial handling of the material, [in a way] that puts other reprint projects to shame." — Chris Mautner - Robot 6
