STILL, nobody has done a damn thing to change it!…And, by now, I’ve begun to believe this may be the actual death of the American Disney classic character comic book!
Say what you will about the admittedly good DARKWING DUCK title, and the fiasco that was DUCKTALES, what *I* define as the American Disney comic – the “Core Four” of WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES, MICKEY MOUSE, DONALD DUCK, and UNCLE SCROOGE – have been “done and gone” for over a year!…And there is not one infinitesimal hint, or ray of hope, that these titles will return.
The fact Disney itself outright OWNS the largest publisher of American comic magazines (Marvel), and nothing has emerged in the year since the release of WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES # 720 is most indicative of the future – more accurately, the LACK of same – of these titles. Titles, I might add, that have endured, through a string of publishers, since 1940!
Until that happens, I’ll leave you with the final line I wrote for Mickey Mouse as what, alas, remains the final original line of dialogue for WALT DISNEY’S COMICS AND STORIES…“Here’s to the GREATEST bunch of characters I know!”
That’s not just Mickey talkin’ folks… It’s ME too!
