Today Mickey Mouse is the cheerful ambassador of all things Disney, but back in the 1930s he was better known as a rough-and-tumble action hero-an adventurous scrapper matching wits with mobsters, kidnappers, spies, and even city slickers. These feats of derring-do took place not on the screen but in his wildly popular daily comic strip, aimed at both kids and grown-ups, which for 45 years was written and drawn anonymously for Walt Disney by Floyd Gottfredson. This is the first volume of a multivolume library of Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse, with complete strip stories, gallery features, and numerous introductions and essays, presented by Fantagraphics Books (who also brought us the definitive collection of Charles Schulz's Peanuts). Relive Mickey's race to a gold mine with Pegleg Pete hot on his heels; Mickey's life on the lam after being framed for bank robbery; and even Mickey's ringside battle with a hulking heavyweight champ. The premiere volume offers 13 adventures starring Mickey, his gal Minnie and her uncle Mortimer, his pals Horace Horsecollar and Butch, villains like Pegleg Pete, and the mysterious Fox.
