There are MORE THAN A FEW good reasons for you to rush out to your local comic book shop, and pick up a copy of WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES # 720!
• It might be the last issue of WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES for a while. (Perhaps ever!)
• It features PART TWO of Romano Scarpa’s long adventure story we titled “The Treasure of Marco Topo”!
• Translation is by the incomparable David Gerstein, the American English script is by yours truly… with some additional material by Christopher Meyer.
I covered for something else as well. In a “kinda sorta”, perhaps controversial way…
It seems that, in some corner of Romano Scarpa’s (…or, perhaps, Italy’s in general) continuity, Mickey and the Gang are considered “general celebrities” in Italy. …And I had to find a way of dealing with that, within the context of the story.
I did it… and in a way that’s (as they used to say about old Warner Bros. movies) “ripped from the headlines”! …Unfortunately, not the fabled headlines of the 1930s, but the “headlines” of today!
We’ll be back on Wednesday (the actual On-Sale Date) with more!
