The Age of Classic Comics Collections continues with this premiere volume in the promised complete collection of Floyd Gottfredson's epic 25 year run on Mickey Mouse. OK, now, we know that some of you will be thinking to yourselves, "Mickey Mouse? Who cares!" Well, while we won't argue that there's quite a bit of mindless pap out there involving this particular mouse and that, as the icon of the Disney empire, this character has a lot to answer for, Gottfredson's work featuring this same mouse is simply straight up comics from the classic age of newspaper strips. This series marks the first time this epic run has ever been collected in English (this work has a bit more respect over in Europe, where it has been the subject of at least one complete collection). This volume starts right at the beginning – April Fool's Day, 1930 – and takes us through a series of adventures ending in early 1932. This well turned out 288 page volume contains heaps upon heaps of archival and supplemental material – much of it in color – that will make for a treasure trove for any and all collectors and aficionados of the mouse.
