Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dieses Buch ist uneingeschränkt jedem zu empfehlen, der auch nur einen Hauch von Interesse an Comics hat!

Zum einen ist der Band als Buch einfach hervorragend gestaltet, der anerkannte Verlag Fantagraphics hat da ganze Arbeit geleistet. Das Layout und der Druck sind außerordentlich gelungen. Und es finden sich auf den 286 Seiten neben den Geschichten sehr viele ausgezeichnet recherchierte und illustrierte Informationen zur Entstehung der Comics und über die Macher im Hintergrund.

Und da sind zum anderen natürlich die Comicstrips selbst. Mit dem ersten Band dieser Reihe wird nichts weniger begonnen, als eine komplette Chronologie der jahrzehntelangen Arbeit des Maus-Mannes Floyd Gottfredson (1905-1986). Weder in den USA noch in Deutschland war man bislang ein derartiges Projekt angegangen. Hierzulande sind bisher nur einzelne Geschichten Gottfredsons erschienen, und dies verstreut in diversen Publikationen und verteilt auf Jahrzehnte.

Was der Autor und Zeichner Carl Barks für Donald Duck und Entenhausen ist, nämlich der meisterhafte Wegbereiter für viele nach ihm, das ist Floyd Gottfredson für die Mickey Mouse-Comicstrips.

Von 1930 bis 1975 (!) war Gottfredson hauptverantwortlich für die Gestaltung der täglichen Zeitungsscomicstrips mit der berühmtesten Maus der Welt.
Seine langen Abenteuergeschichten der 30er bis 50er Jahre zeigen einen vielseitigen, frechen und abenteuerlustigen Mickey, wie man ihn in den heutigen Disney-Publikationen, z. B. dem hierzulande wöchentlich erscheinenden Micky-Maus-Heft, meist vergeblich sucht.

Mir ist keine andere bisherige Ausgabe bekannt, die die Tagesstrips von Floyd Gottfredson so schön restauriert und klar wiedergibt wie diese, zudem ist das Material lückenlos chronologisch und mit vielen Extras. Einzig die etwas zu kleine Größe gibt einen Stern Abzug, aber das Problem haben andere Gottfredson Ausgaben auch... Ansonsten: Kaufen!

Possibly the best comic strip reprint book I have ever seen 1. Juni 2011
Von Frank Bergdoll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a must-have item for anyone interested in comic strip reprints, Disney history, or just plain good-times!

I am a collector of comic book reprint hardcover material - of which there has been a great number lately. They vary in quality and it really comes down to three things:

1) do you like the character/comic?
2) is the artwork complete, reproduced well, and authentic?
3) are there any value-added materials in the book - such as essays, photos, etc?

If you are reading this review - then I must assume you have some interest in Mickey Mouse and/or Gottfredson's artwork - so #1 is a given.

As for #2 and #3 - wow. Just wow.

This book does an excellent job of printing the material on a nice, heavy, white paper that makes the art look fantastic (and it is fantastic art to start with). The paper is matte, so there is no glare, but it is quality paper that is crisp and doesn't fade or "smudge" the work. It looks wonderful.

As for #3 - this is where this book may be the best comic strip reprint book I've ever seen.

The essays and photos are top-notch and enlightening. I am especially impressed with the short essays introducing each "chapter" or story that the volume holds. You really get context and interest as you embark on the next pages. There is some material that I haven't seen reprinted since "The Censored Mouse" - a very short-lived comic in the 80's (2 issues?). I am glad to see some of that material here - where it can be treated as part of a cultural heritage, in the context of the times it was created with appropriate information and essay explanation.

This book is just rich in material - both reprinted strips and supporting information. I cannot think of a better example of what a strip collection could be. It's fantastic and I look forward to every published volume finding its way into my collection.

Disney's Biggest Star Gets the Star Treatment 6. Juni 2011
Von E. David Swan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Ah, Mickey Mouse; that vacuous smile, that soulless laugh. His silhouette is literally a corporate logo. When I was young I used to watch Popeye and Warner Brothers cartoons after school because Disney didn't syndicate. Even when Disney started producing new cartoons for syndication in the late 80's Mickey Mouse was always conspicuous by his absence. The Disney Corporations intention may have been to protect their most famous property but in my mind it made Mickey seem snobbish. However in the first three decades of his existence Mickey was extraordinarily accessible in cartoons and the newspaper dailies. The cartoons were fun if a bit repetitive and shallow but the newspaper comics were where Mickey was really given the opportunity to develop as a character and Floyd Gottfredson was the man who made it all happen.

The first storyline featuring Gottfredson's talents was `Mickey Mouse in Death Valley' upon which this book is named. Walt Disney himself wrote the first third of the story and let me just say that Disney may have been a brilliant businessman but as a writer he was lacking. Disney's Mickey seemed to only talk in puns and stale jokes and the story was all over the place. When Gottfredson took over writing he initially emulated Disney and it wasn't until the second story, `Mr. Slicker and the Egg Robbers', that Gottfredson began to find his own style and by the time `Mickey Mouse Boxing Champ' rolled out Gottfredson had made the character his own. He slowed the stories down to a pace more appropriate for a daily comic and his art style improved to the point where it was just off the charts magnificent. Whereas the first story felt hokey, frantic and dated Gottfredson changed the series to feel funny, well paced and edgy. Hard to believe that Mickey could once be described as edgy but for a pipsqueak he could dish out (and take) some punishment. The town bully actually snipped off the end of Mickey's tail and tied his nose in a knot. That's pretty hardcore.

I am a HUGE fan of Elzie Segar's Popeye but the character was never intended as a role model. Mickey on the other hand was a legitimate good guy who was resourceful, brave and big hearted but Gottfredson to his credit didn't make him perfect. When Mickey believes that Minnie is in love with another *ahem* rat he attempts to commit suicide... repeatedly. Mickey is not above using alcohol to get one over on an enemy and even pulls out a pair of pistols in order to motivate the "heavy light weight champ" to train harder. Like Popeye, the early Mickey Mouse was a product of the depression era and lived a simple small town life. From starting a war with the town bully to fighting a local boxing tough guy Mickey's adventures generally kept him close to home and I liked that. With every story I read I enjoyed this book more and more and Gottfredson's art style is some of the most aesthetically pleasing ever to grace a comic strip.

I have yet to purchase a collection from Fantagraphics that wasn't top notch quality and this one is no exception. From the cover to the binding and the additional material on Gottfredson this is a fantastic book and one that will look lovely on a bookshelf. My ONLY issue is that the comics themselves are shrunk a bit and I occasionally had some difficulty reading text. Most of the time it's not an issue and the images look terrific. I can unreservedly recommend this book to fans of comics in general and or fans of Disney. As long as Fantagraphics continues to produce these Mickey comics by Gottfredson I'll continue to purchase them.

Just Stunning 3. Juni 2011
Von Tim Hewitt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm really just stunned at the quality of newspaper comic strip reprint collections coming along these days. It seems that all of the publishers have stepped up their game to make these collections the best they can possibly be. Fantagraphics has outdone themselves with "Race to Death Valley." The book itself is a beauty, just the right size without being too large or too small. Some might complain that the strips (3 to a page) are too small, but to my eye they appear just about right, emphasizing Floyd Gottfredson's art to the best advantage (and the reproduction quality is outstanding). The stories are just great, movie serial, pulp style adventures. In addition to the comics themselves, Fantagraphics has again gone one step beyond in providing a wealth of background material, including essays on the genesis of the Mickey Mouse newspaper strip, Floyd Gottfredson, analysis, appreciations and more, with lots of color illustrations from the Disney archives. Each story sequence has it's own introduction, and there's an additional section at the end of the book that reprints the very first sequence of the comic strip (by Disney himself and Ub Iwerks) from just before the arrival of Floyd Gottfredson and "Race to Death Valley." In fact, there's so much background material crammed into this book, I'm not sure Fantagraphics can maintain this level through future volumes (but I hope they can). If you've loved these strips before, this is a collection you'll absolutely want to have on your shelf. If you've never read Mickey Mouse's "Indiana Jones" style adventures before, this is a great opportunity to dive in and see what you've been missing. With Amazon's price, it's beyond a bargain and a worthy addition to the growing library of quality newspaper strip reprints.

A Spectacular Look at Mickey's First Comics 1. August 2011
Von George H. Taylor Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Every once in a while, a book comes along that is simply spectacular. This collection of comic strips by Floyd Gottfredson is a perfect example of how to present, analyze and reconstruct subject matter that is viewed differently today. The series editors (David Gerstein and Gary Groth) pull no punches in discussing why Mickey was carrying a gun or the use of slang that is noticeably offensive by today's standards. This is a wonderful vehicle for presenting historically accurate art. Other companies should take notice.

Mickey Mouse is a global icon.

It is really hard to imagine a time when the Mouse didn't pervade every media outlet. When these comics were produced, it was Mickey's first foray into the lucrative comic pages of the day. The editors recount the story of how the strip came to life through research vignettes that are carefully peppered between the serials. The first three months worth of strips were written by Walt Disney and drawn by Ub Iwerks. Win Smith handled it for a few weeks before Gottfredson was brought in on a temporary basis. Gottfredson ended up at the helm of the strip for the next 45 years.

There are fourteen serials presented in the book covering January 13, 1930 to January 9, 1932. The editors went to extreme lengths to secure the strips. Often, they had to borrow panels from collectors when Disney's masters had been damaged. The strips have been reproduced in a brilliant fidelity; the artwork and lettering stands fresh. Some of the antics may seem silly or overtly simple, but you have to remember the restrictions that a four-panel comic presents. The first panel needed to "catch up" the reader while the last panel needed to offer a reason to read it the next day. Gottfredson quickly became the master of the medium.

The supplemental material provided by the editors would shine on its own. Historical context is provided that explains the quirks of the characters as seen through modern eyes. Yes, there are times when Mickey carries a weapon or when certain ethnicities might be overly generalized, but you have to appreciate the comics as they were presented.

The last 60 pages of the book are dedicated to essays and archival features. Included are the first three months of the strip before Gottfredson took over. The editors offer essays about the artists that assisted Gottfredson and how the characters existed inside the world of the comics.

This is a stunning work. The historical presentation is flawless, as is the artwork. We meet a Mickey Mouse that very few of us experienced. When Gottfredson was penning the stories, he wasn't bound to the same code that the animators found themselves having to adhere to. As Mickey evolved on screen to become the charming every-man, the comics offered a Mickey that was more aligned with the earliest shorts. He was more of a good-natured rascal who was always looking for the best in people and in situations.

This is a must-have for Mickey fans, comic fans and anyone else with an interest in the early years of the Disney Company. You will garner a greater appreciation for Mouse and how he developed across different media. You will also get to see Horace Horsecollar, Clarabelle Cow, Kat Nipp and Butch in more of a starring role. Pick up a copy; you won't be sorry.

Nostalgic 13. Juni 2011
Von Brigadier Victor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Floyd drew the Mickey of my youth. Those of us who grew up back then consider this Mickey Mouse as THE Mickey Mouse. We watched as mickey grew along with us. Some of us gave up on Mickey when we hit highschool fearing we would be teased for reading little kid comics. There were a substantial number of us who simply grew along with the famous mouse. Gottfredson also grew with the mouse. Early Mickeys must look kinda crude by todays standards; but it was the Mickey of that period. The adventures were never dull and Gottfredson, like Barks, never talked down to his young readers. The stories are as good or better than most of todays comic adventures. Its a look at comic history. For some of us its a trip down time; a nostalgic trip into our past. Yet young readers today should become quickly absorbed into the adventure. I highly recommend this book and hope that others follow.
