BOOM! Studios’ Mickey Mouse and Friends has been on hiatus since January 2010, but on September 22nd it comes back with a bang as the long-running series reaches its 300th issue. The comic opens with the first part of “300 Mickeys” (written by Stefan Petrucha and drawn by César Ferioli), in which Mickey’s pal Eega Beeva returns from the future with a duplication ray.
After a 2-page article with texts by editor Christopher Meyer, Italian artist/writer Casty, Dutch artist/writer Daan Jippes and Disney historian David Gerstein, the issue continues with the classic comic strip “Tanglefoot Pulls His Weight” (written by Ted Osborne and art by Floyd Gottfredson), which is reprinted in complete form for the first time ever in the USA. Tanglefoot was beautifully restored by David Gerstein.
The milestone issue also features three brand-new covers! The standard edition ($2.99) has a new cover by Casty; the deluxe edition ($6.99) has a special cover by Daan Jippes; and Daan also provided an exclusive cover for the New York Comic-Con variant edition of the issue.
Here is a preview of the covers and first five pages:
