Though not published continuously since it’s inception in 1940, it’s been around most of that time, and with one continuous numbering, is one of a rare few titles about to hit issue 700. Like UNCLE SCROOGE, this anthology Disney title mixes reprints from the book’s glory days with new European stories, and as I said about the other title, the best moments in these books for me remain the Carl Barks classic Donald Duck stories. More recent work by William Van Horn comes the closest to him in inspiration and humor, and there are a few of those here, too. Mickey Mouse also has a share of the book, but I’ve never warmed to him as a comics character, I’m afraid. For the money, you’ll find some entertainment here, but the ratio is less for me than in UNCLE SCROOGE, so I have to give this book only a mild recommendation.
