Here are the previews for Disney comics from Previews Volume XIV, #12:
Donald Duck and Friends #325 --- One of Carl Barks' most beloved and
legendary tales, "Lost in the Andes," is reprinted in its entirety in this issue.
Follow Donald and the nephews as they discover the lost city of "Plane Awful"
where the natives are real squares and everything is built on the square. 32
pages, FC $2.95
Mickey Mouse and Friends #274 --- "The Ruby Eye of Omar Guy-Am," one of the
most requested of all of Paul Murry's Golden Age Mickey stories, is reprinted
in this issue, along with Stefan Petrucha and Cesar Feroli's "Steamboat
Willies," a tribute to guess who, and a Donald Duck short, "Fifty-Cent Frenzy,"
written by John Lustig. 32 pages, FC $2.95
Mickey Mouse Adventures #2 --- (Yayyyy!!!!!!!!!) Three long Disney adventure
stories: in "Trouble Afoot," Mickey investigates mysterious footprints found
in the snow around town; and in "River of Time," our dauntless Mouse delves
into the past as we learn more about Steamboat Willie. Donald Duck in "Arctic
Antics," rounds out the book. Cover by Noel Van Horn. SC, 128 pages, FC $7.95
Uncle Scrooge #339 --- Don Rosa's "Crown of the Crusader Kings," leads this
issue which wraps with "The Great Wig Mystery," one of the later Scrooge
stories by the great Carl Barks. And if that weren't enough, you also get "In Quest
of the Green Hope," written and drawn by Daniel Branca and Wanda Gattino. 64
pages, FC $6.95
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #654 --- Carl Barks' great, early Duck
adventure, "Frozen Gold," is the cover feature this issue, with a new cover by Daan
Jippes. William Van Horn's latest ten-pager, "Busy Bodies," is the lead
story, with L'il Bad Wolf and Goofy stories by Paul Murry, along with Grandma and
Mickey tales rounding out the book. 64 pages, FC $6.95
Disney offerings by Tokyopop (no Lizzie McGuire?!?!):
Bambi --- Reflecting an age of innocence and a time of wonder, no film better
captures the pure magic of Disney than Bambi, the world's most endearing
animated tale about the beauty of nature and the miracle of life. Nominated for
three Academy Awards, this immortal blend of classic storytelling and
unforgettable characters is most fondly remembered as Walt Disny's all-time favorite
picture. FC, 96 pages, 5x7 7/16" $7.99
Lilo & Stitch: The Series Volume 3 --- Lilo and Stitch have always had fun
together- but working together is a different story! When expriments 501 and 502
wreak havoc on the island, the quarreling couple must learn about the
co-operative forces of yin and yang before trouble reaches the breaking point! Things
really get shaken up when expriment 513, an earthquake-causing monster,
"tremorizes" the island! FC, 96 pages, 5 x 7 7/16" $7.99
All in all looks like a great month. Not so sure about "Lost in the Andes"
taking up all of DDF 325 though. If you've read the story like I have, there's
nothing new in the book. Then again, splitting up the story over multiple
issues would be bad too. Hopefully this type of reprint is the exception, because I
think such long reprints would be more suited to the 64 page books.
And the Steamboat Willie stories are intriguing. Be interesing to see how
it's all treated in the comic book format.
MMA and DDA, something big to look forward to every month!
