released in conjunction with the DVD in August and stars Mickey, Donald, and Goofy 
in the title roles, with Minnie and Daisy as ingenues and The Beagle Boys, 
Peg-Leg Pete, and Clarabelle(that's right!) <----(not an aside by me) as the 
villians! FC, 32 pages. $3.95(It has a prestige format cover, hence the extra 
dollar. Rip that thing off and call it $2.95 ;)

Oh, yeah, lest I forget the most important thing coming out in August :P

Lizzie McGuire Cine-Manga Volume 7 GN --- Written by Terri Minsky. Over the 
Hill & Just Friends--- Lizzie's got a lot on her mind these days (Really?). Not 
only is she fretting about what to do with her life (star in another teen 
queen movie), she's suddenly beginning to feel old (She probably won't be famous 
for long, so grab it while you can honey!). This doesn't bode well for her 
confidence, especially with the Sadie Hawkins Dance coming up (Another catfight 
with Lindsay Lohan?) Will she be crowned the dancing queen...or just a dancing 
fool? Meanwhile, when Lizzie's little brother Matt stays up late watching a 
scary movie, will he get a fright in the night? SC, 5x7, 96 pages, FC (7 of 7) 

Oh for crying out loud, next to Lizzie McGuire is a Malcom In The Middle 
Cine-Manga. This stuff is going too far! ;P

All in all, not too bad. Can't wait for MMA!! And one of the reprints is new 
to me (in WDC&S).
