Aleksandar J. Ivkovic launched Mika Mis ('Mickey Mouse') weekly magazine in Serbia on 21 March 1936, the first official Disney magazine in Serbia, which was published until 4 April 1941 (issue 504), two days before the German bombs hit Belgrade. The actual last issue, number 505, was released on October 8th, 1941 and was immediately forbidden by the nazis. It was published weekly, and from issue 24 twice per week.
Mika Mis, which had a print-run of something over 30,000, contained stories created by local Serbian artists, as well as a lot of material distributed by King Features Syndicate from the United States. The Mika Miï¿½ team included excellent artists like Nikola Navojev, who drew some of the local Mickey strips, and the very talented Vlastimir Belkic, who created the greatest part of its Disney strips as well as many of its covers. Those covers represented Disney characters, during the first hundred (and some) issues. Then they started featuring also other King Features Syndicate properties.
The total number of pages was changed throughout the years, as follows: 8 pages (issues 1 to 13); 12 pages (14 to 60); 20 pages (61 and 62); 16 pages (63 to 365); 24 pages (366 to 505).
