Starting January 2011, BOOM! Studios is changing the format of some of their Disney comics. Earlier this week the publisher announced that ‘classics are back’. We’ve now learned what’s inside their January line-up and it’s good news for fans of traditional Disney comics.
For the past year we’ve been seeing mostly long Italian adventure stories in BOOM!’s Disney comics, such as Ultraheroes and Wizards of Mickey. It now looks like BOOM! is returning some of their titles to a more traditional format, with several short stories in each issue, featuring both classic reprints and new stories that haven’t been seen in the United States yet.
Here’s what’s inside Mickey Mouse 304, coming out in January 2011:
- “The Pirate Ghost Ship” (1944) by Bill Walsh and Floyd Gottfredson
- “Laundry Blues” (1932) by Floyd Gottfredson
- “Don’t Worry About It” by Romano Scarpa
And here are the contents for Walt Disney’s Comics & Stories 715:
- “70th Heaven!” by Daan Jippes
- Untitled Li’l Bad Wolf / Donald Duck story by Gill Turner
- “Forget Me Not” written by Ruud Straatman / art by Don Rosa
- “Life Savers” written by Carl Barks / art by Daan Jippes
