There are a few good reasons for you to rush over to your local comic book shop, and pick up a copy of MICKEY MOUSE # 309!
• It might be the last issue of MICKEY MOUSE for a while. (Perhaps ever!)
• It has an ALL STAR CAST appearing in a long story we titled “The Treasure of Marco Topo”!
• The story is by the great Maestro Romano Scarpa – and is set in his native Italy, no less!
• Translation is by the incomparable David Gerstein, the American English script is by yours truly… with some additional material by Christopher Meyer.
• The issue is fronted by a great Marco Rota cover (…Yes, Marco Rota meets “Marco Topo”!), though MICKEY seems oddly positioned toward the rear of the image, given he’s the star of the story and it’s his book! And what’s the Blot STANDING ON, anyway? WATER? Same for the other nameless hangers-on.
We’ll be back on Wednesday (the actual On-Sale Date) with some more detail!
