Posted by Arthur in Italy, New Titles

Gli Anni d’Oro di Topolino (Golden Age of Mickey Mouse) is a new series of gorgeous books that collect 45 years of work by one of the greatest cartoonists of all time, Floyd Gottfredson. Gottfredson is best known for his work on the Mickey Mouse comic strips. Starting in 1930, he created thousands of daily strips and Sunday pages with the mouse, which have been recolored for this new library.

A total of 38 books of 160 pages each will be released weekly from March through November. They sell for €9.99 (approximately US$ 13) each and are available online from this website (it looks like international orders are possible).

Mickey Mouse on Quandomai Island

Posted by Arthur in Boom! Studios, United States

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.

“Casty is a modern master that soon will be spoken about in the same breath as Floyd Gottfredson, Romano Scarpa and William Van Horn,” says BOOM Kids! Editor Aaron Sparrow. “It’s exciting to bring this brand-new Mickey epic adventure to North American audiences so soon after its Italian premiere.”

The four part serial “Mickey Mouse on Quandomai Island” 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.
