"Oh, for gosh sakes!" Floyd Gottfredson's classic 1930s Mickey Mouse is back for another round of thrills, chills, and epic quests - taking him from the depths of teeming jungles to the halls of spooky Blaggard Castle. Mickey's classic Disney bad guys are here, too, with arch-enemy Pegleg Pete joined for this book by the mysterious "Bill Shakespeare" and hypnosis-happy Professors Ecks, Doublex, and Triplex!
Floyd Gottfredson, artist of Mickey Mouse from 1930-1975, made it the most popular cartoon-based comic of its time. Unafraid to tackle social satire and grown-up action-adventure, Gottfredson produced a Mouse for all ages. Today as Disney's Epic Mickey video game brings Mickey's gutsy side to a new medium. Fantagraphics' Mickey Mouse series shows just how long Mickey has been a hero! In this book you'll relive Mickey's fight with pirates on desolate Treasure Island; his quest with Goofy to catch ruthless counterfeiters; and his battles to save windy Horace Horsecollar from mad scientists, a robbery frame-up - and himself!
Lovingly restored from Disney's original negatives and proof sheets, Mickey Mouse: Trapped on Treasure Island also includes more than 50 pages of fascinating supplementary features. You'll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and vivid commentary by a full team of seasoned Disney scholars. Walt Disney often said that his studio's success "all started with a mouse" - and today Mickey is among the world's most recognizable icons in the world. Now it's time to rediscover the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon: Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse.
