Covers for Mickey Mouse 297 and Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories 700

Posted on November 14th 2009 in Boom! Studios, United States

On November 18th, Boom! Kids will release the next issues of Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories, which will feature the second chapters in the Wizards of Mickey and Ultraheroes series. Just like the first issues there will be two regular covers and a limited edition cover for each issue. Note the limited cover for WDC&S is the penciled version of Cover A, which I think is pretty neat.

To celebrate the milestone 700th edition of Walt Disney Comics, Boom is bringing us a a double-sized issue at no additional cost. Besides the regular 32 pages of the second chapter of Ultraheroes, it also has a special back-up feature by William Van Horn, an 8-page story titled Close-ups.

The next two issues of Walt Disney Comics will wrap up the first arc of the Ultraheroes series, which will spin off into its own special series in January with Disney’s Hero Squad: Ultraheroes #1, a trade paperback now available for pre-order on Amazon for $9.99. That same month Walt Disney Comics will start a new 4-part story arc starring Mickey Mouse in The World of Tomorrow, a newspaper strip by Floyd Gottfredson from 1944 an Italian story from 2008 written and drawn by Casty.

WDCS #703 was solicited as the start of the Mickey Mysteries series. What happened? Does this mean the Mickey Mouse title will continue with that storyline?

Hey… just bought WDC&S #700C, the sketch cover. It was numbered #397 (or something similar, it’s not readily available).

How many of these comics were printed? How many cover errors have occurred in the past? How much are they worth? Since it’s not sold (legally) overseas, how much will European fans pay for a copy?

It’s sad that a “tradicional” title like WDC&s is publishing this kind of bad taste Disney garbage instead of the classics.This kinds of things would be suitable in a tile like the “DD Adventures”(Pocket)
