A giant firecracker exploded under his chair. The little darlings are so playful. I hope you enjoy them. Your cousin, Della”.

Wizards of Donald?

Posted by Arthur in Disney comics, Europe

Wizards of Mickey, which was created by Claretta Muci and Stefano Ambrosio, is renamed by Egmont in Norway to “Donald Duck – Magiens mestere”, kicking Mickey out of the spotlight. Apparently, Donald Duck is far more popular in the Nordic countries than Mickey is. The first chapter comes out this week and features a redrawn cover putting Donald in front of Mickey:
