Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories is currently printing Mickey Mouse and the World to Come by Casty. Starting with issue #707 this June, the series will feature another story by this talented Italian artist and writer. Mickey Mouse on Quandomai Island finds Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Pete shipwrecked on the mysterious Quandomai Island, where ancient beasts run wild and nothing is as it seems! This release in the United States comes hot on the heels of the story’s initial Italian release in Italy this spring. Topolino e l’isola di Quandomai was first published in Italian Topolino #2832 on March 16th, 2010.
â€œCasty is a modern master that soon will be spoken about in the same breath as Floyd Gottfredson, Romano Scarpa and William Van Horn,â€ says BOOM Kids! Editor Aaron Sparrow. â€œItâ€™s exciting to bring this brand-new Mickey epic adventure to North American audiences so soon after its Italian premiere.â€
The four part serial â€œMickey Mouse on Quandomai Islandâ€ will premier in issue #707 of WDC&S with two covers: a wrap-around cover by Casty and a second cover by Jonathan Gray. The story was translated for BOOM! Kids by David Gerstein and Jonathan Gray.
