As long as we’re touring that wonderfully unusual era of “split covers” for WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES, let’s do one more – Issue 275 (August, 1963), or what I call “When Zorro Came to Town”!
As you can see, the heroic photo image of Zorro dominates (casts a noble shadow?) over the title’s usual inhabitants: Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, and Li’l Bad Wolf.
In fact, Mickey is hardly seen at all, and uncharacteristically suffers the indignity of getting a “painted eye”!
Zorro would swashbuckle his way through issues 275 thru 278 before vanishing like the night wind to fight for justice another day – presumably, in some other comic title.
