"Yesterday's" Comic> Mickey Mouse/Uncle Scrooge flip book FCBD
Two flip book comics in one day? Really? Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse/Uncle Scrooge Gladstone (June, 2004) MICKEY MOUSE COVER ART: attributed to Carl Buettner UNCLE SCROOGE COVER ART: Carl Banks Mickey Mouse: "Riddle of The Red Hat" (originally published in "Micky Mouse Four Color #79, 1945) STORY ATTRIBUTED TO: Eleanor Packer ARTIST: Carl Banks COLORIST: Susan Daigle-Leach Uncle Scrooge: "The Second Richest Duck" (originally published in "Uncle Scrooge" #15, 1956) STORY/ART: Carl Banks COLORIST: Susan Daigle-Leach The first story has Mickey in the doghouse for laughing at Minnie's new hat. When he tries to apologize, he find another mouse with the same hat and Mickey, Goofy, & Minnie end up caught up with a stolen ruby and the crooks who want it. It's a good story. I didn't like the Donald Duck story because it didn't feel like the Donald Duck stories I've seen. However, thanks to Ducktales, which borrowed from Banks' Uncle Scrooge comics I can get into this one. It's even the first appearance of Flintheart Glomgold, one of Scrooge's enemies on that show. Scrooge and Flintheart are neck and neck in the wealth and penny-pitching departments so to decide who is the richest duck they opt to see how much string they have...and of course cheat each other until the giant balls become really small ones. Then it comes down to the piece of string Scrooge carries his first dime on (before he kept it locked in his vault...I'm guessing to keep Magica Dispell away from it) to win the title. It's fun but you really see what sad people Scrooge McDuck and Flintheart Glomgold really are. These were both great stories. If you can find one of the many reprints of the old Disney comics you should pick them up if you're fans of Mickey Mouse and friends.
