Launched in 1975, this 244-page magazine entertains children and adults alike with the best classic Disney stories. Next to Topolino this is the second most popular Italian Disney comic. Classici Disney is made entirely out of reprints of stories from Topolino, which restarted from number 1 somewhere in the late '70s / early '80s. From then on it is referred to as CWDNS, the NS standing for "Nuova Serie" (new series).
The reprinted stories were almost exclusively Italian until the mid '80s. For a while the odd issues of CWDNS were exact reprints of issues of the CWD, which were already collectors' items sold at next to extortionate prices at comics conventions. The CWD / CWDNS are translated and redistributed in many European countries.
