Great lover, scholar, soldier, sailor, singer, toreador, tycoon,
jockey, prizefighter, automobile racer, aviator, farmer. Mickey
Mouse lives in a world in which space, time, and the law of physics
are nil. Hecan reach inside of a bull s mouth, pull out his teeth
and use them as castanets. He can lead a band orplay violin solos;
his ingenuity is limitless; he never fails.
We ve already seen the gorgeous treatment that Fantagraphics has given to books like Peanuts... sothere s no doubt that Gottfredson s Mickey Mouse will get the same. Kudos to them for bringing thework of a legendary artist back to today s readers in a way that will honor his memory and contributionsto the medium.--David Wolkin
Floyd Gottfredson 's wily take on the character is revered by the best cartoonists, and Fantagraphics has packaged these earliest serial strips from the 30s in some truly handsome volumes. Take advantage of the two volume slipcover edition for a great value and the publisher 's now signature excellence in presentation. --Paul Montgomery

Over the past few months, [Fantagraphics] have been putting out collections of Floyd Gottfredson's work on the Mickey Mouse newspaper strip, and they're some of the best comics ever put out.... It's incredible stuff, and when you throw in the consistently beautiful design that Fantagraphics gives to their projects, it's something that makes a pretty great gift. --Chris Sims"
Why are there two distinct pictures for this product? Are there, in fact, two cover designs for this box? If I buy it, how can you ensure I will get the "red/yellow" box, and not the "red/green" box? I ask because the latter would not match the other boxes I have from this same collection, which would be disappointing. - Customer question on 08/02/2020
