Big Little Book series
The Big Little Books, first published during 1932 by the Whitman Publishing Company of Racine, were small, compact books designed with a captioned illustration opposite each page of text. Other publishers, notably Saalfield, adopted this format after Whitman achieved success with its early titles, priced at 10¢ each. A Big Little Book was 3⅝″ wide and 4½″ high, with 212 to 432 pages making an approximate thickness of 1½″; the interior book design displayed full-page black-and-white illustrations on the right side, facing the pages of text on the left. Stories were related to radio programs, comic strips, children's books and movies. Books of the series had interior color illustrations. After the first Big Little Book, The Adventures of Dick Tracy, was published, numerous titles were sold through Woolworth's and other retail store systems during the 1930s. With a name change to Better Little Books during 1938, the series continued into the 1960s. Variations such as Dime Action Books were produced by other publishers, as noted by the Collecting Channel's Andy Hooper: While the format was pioneered by Whitman Publishing, other firms including Van Wiseman, Goldsmith and World Syndicate Publishing all produced big little books between 1934 and 1960.
Whitman was the last to abandon the form, publishing big little books about boomer characters like Major Matt Mason into the mid-1960s. Not all big little books adhered to the original format of text on the left side and a large graphic on the right of each page spread, the earlier, more illustrated books are more valuable as a result... Dick Tracy was the hero of the first big little book, he was followed by every major cartoon and radio character of the 1930s, including Alley Oop, Buck Rogers and Dagwood, Li'l Abner, Mickey Mouse, Captain Midnight and dozens more. There were numerous books published that featured original characters created for the Big Little series, those are now little remembered selling for $10 or less each in any condition. A few titles were ostensibly non-fiction works about famous people, as with Whitman’s Billy The Kid and The Story of Jackie Cooper, which proves that biographies of child movie stars are no recent phenomenon. Robert Thibadeau's project at Carnegie Mellon has made at least two Big Little Books available online.
Thibadeau attempts to "capture the entire production" of an old book with facsimile images showing pages with wear and tear. "We're trying to eternalize that book as it is," says Thibadeau. The Antique Books Digital Library offers two free Big Little Book titles, Tim McCoy on the Tomahawk Trail and Bronc Peeler The Lone Cowboy. Fred Harman's Bronc Peeler was a Western comic strip character, a precursor to another comic strip drawn by Harman, the more successful Red Ryder. Sam Mendes' film Road to Perdition showed a boy reading The Lone Ranger Big Little Book, but this was an anachronism since the movie is set during 1931, a year prior to the first Big Little Books and two years before The Lone Ranger premiered January 31, 1933 on radio. More than 1,300 Big Little Books and the many publishers are mentioned in Arnold T. Blumberg's The Big Big Little Book Book. From 1939 the British Woolworths Group sold "Mighty Midgets", 32-page books that measured 3¾ inches by 2½ inches and were sold at the artificially low price of threepence.

Mickey Mouse (comic book)
Mickey Mouse is a comic book series that has a long-running history, first appearing in 1941 as part of the Four Color one-shot series. It received its own numbering system with issue #28, is published by IDW Publishing; the book emphasizes stories with Mickey and his supporting cast: Goofy, Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse and Mickey's nephews Morty and Ferdie Fieldmouse. Mickey's perpetual rival is the criminal Peg-Leg Pete. Other adversaries have included Emil Eagle, Eli Squinch, Sylvester Shyster, the team of Dangerous Dan McBoo and Idjit the Midget, the Phantom Blot. Two major artistic influences on the appearance of Mickey in comics are Floyd Gottfredson, who drew the Mickey Mouse daily newspaper strip from 1930 to 1975, comic book artist Paul Murry, who drew Mickey stories from 1950 to 1984. In the mid 1930s original Mickey comic book stories were being produced in Italy and the United Kingdom for local consumption. Publishing Mickey comic book stories in the United States was pioneered by the third Mickey Mouse Magazine series.
Published by Hal Horne, it had artwork by John Stanley and text pieces by Irving Brecher. By mid-1936, Horne turned over the magazine to Kay Kamen. Kamen the following year recruited Western Publishing to handle publication. Western added reprinted Disney comic strips to the book's lineup beginning with the July 1937 issue. In the words of historian Michael Barrier "Reprinted newspaper comics were never more than a minor part of its lineup until the last issue, dated September 1940, when they took up half the pages." But Barrier has judged the strip reprints "stood out by virtue of their crisp professionalism". The successor title, Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, described by Barrier as a true comic book, began publication with the Oct. 1940 issue and had the Gottfredson serials as a prominent feature. In the 1940s, Mickey's adventures appeared in a series of Four Color Dell Comics one-shots with the name "Mickey Mouse" prominently displayed on the cover. In 1953, these one-shots evolved into a regular series titled Mickey Mouse, starting with issue #28 and lasting through 1990.
Although other magazines called Mickey Mouse were available in many countries, they were less like the American title and more resembled WDC&S, acting as the flagship Disney title for its circulation area and thus containing stories of all the major Disney characters as a function of its anthology format. The American Mickey Mouse title experienced changes in artists, length and printing quality over the years. A unique experiment deviating from the norm occurred in 1966: Inspired by the James Bond spy mania of the period for three issues the comic was titled Mickey Mouse, Super Secret Agent with stories of Mickey and Goofy becoming international spies and interacting with human characters in realistic settings. While Mickey and Goofy were drawn in the usual "cartoony" style by Paul Murry, the other characters and backgrounds were done by Dan Spiegle in a realistic manner. Comic book historian Michael Barrier dubbed it an aesthetic failure in a contemporary review. By the 1970s, contents of the Mickey Mouse title consisted of the reprinting of earlier stories, sometimes from Walt Disney's Comics and Stories or other Disney publications.
The average paid circulation between September 1969 and September 1970, when the comic was published six times a year, cost 15 cents, was 223,396, whereas in 1960 the figure stood at 568,803. Gladstone Publishing assumed publication of Mickey Mouse in 1986, still publishing reprints, but which were recolored, taking advantage of more modern inking and printing techniques. Stories from foreign Walt Disney comic books were translated and included. Issues contained a description of the source of each story, gave credit to the writers and artists by name — which had not been done. Letters to the editor provided additional story background. Although the circulation of Mickey Mouse had declined for years compared to Uncle Scrooge, in 1987 Gladstone said it had become their top selling title. So, in late 1987 Gladstone announced they were cutting all their publications back to eight issues per year; the cover price went to 95 cents in 1987. Gladstone published many of Gottfredson's Mickey stories that had never been reprinted since the 1930s or 1940s.
Mickey Mouse ceased publication in 1990, with issue #256, when Gladstone lost their license to publish the Disney characters. From 1990 to 2003, no Mickey Mouse comic book was published in the United States. However, from 1990 to 1991, a new comic book, Mickey Mouse Adventures, was published by Disney's then-new comic book imprint, Disney Comics. Disney Comics ceased all publications in 1993. Additionally, the two part "Perils of Mickey" adventure, "Return to Blaggard Castle/Shadows of the Past", by writer David Cody Weiss and artist Stephen DeStefano, was published in two consecutive 1993 issues of Disney Adventures magazine; this story was a direct sequel to the 1930s Floyd Gottfredson story, "Blaggard Castle," and featured a return to the classic Mickey Mouse art style. The story has been reprinted in Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse: "Trapped on Treasure Island" ISBN 978-1-60699-495-5. In 2003 Gemstone Publishing was granted the license for Disney's comic book characters, they relaunched Mickey Mouse under an expanded title, Mickey Mouse and Friends, continuing
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories
Walt Disney's Comics and Stories, sometimes abbreviated WDC or WDC&S, is an anthology comic book series featuring an assortment of Disney characters, including Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Mickey Mouse, Chip'n Dale, Lil Bad Wolf, Bucky Bug, Grandma Duck, Brer Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, others. The precursor to WDC was Mickey Mouse Magazine, published by Dell Comics in several incarnations from 1933 to 1940. WDC itself was launched by Dell in October 1940, consisted of reprints taken from the Disney comic strips Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and Silly Symphonies reformatted for comic books and colored; the first original story created for WDC was an adaptation of The Flying Gauchito illustrated by Walt Kelly in #24. By the mid-1950s the title was the best selling comic book in the United States, with a monthly circulation of over three million. Mark Evanier describes the high circulation as the product of "an aggressive subscription push." To facilitate birthday and holiday gift giving to youngsters, Western Publishing offered to send subscription recipients illustrated letters that announced the gift.
Various premiums were offered for new subscribers, including a mini-poster attributed to Walt Kelly advertised on the back cover of WDC&S #100 from January 1949. The anthology format began with a 10-page story featuring Donald Duck and for most of the run ended with a serial or single story featuring Mickey Mouse; the most popular issues featured the Donald Duck 10-pagers written and drawn by Carl Barks who began the run with issue # 31 and ended with original stories in issue #312 but have been continually reprinted up to the present. All of these stories co-starred Donald's nephews, Huey and Louie, with frequent guest appearances by Barks' greatest creation Uncle Scrooge, as well as the Beagle Boys, Gyro Gearloose, Gladstone Gander. In many 1980s issues, as well as scattered issues from 2006 onward, new Daan Jippes and/or Freddy Milton Donald Duck stories lead off the title. Issues #523, 524, 526, 528, 531, 547 featured lead-off stories drawn by Don Rosa, while most issues from 1993–2005 featured lead-offs by William Van Horn.
Many 1940s issues featured Mickey Mouse serials by Floyd Gottfredson which were reprinted from newspaper daily comic strips. The 1980s saw. Li'l Bad Wolf stories began in issue #52 and remained a regular feature for more than ten years, continuing to appear in the majority of issues after the continuous run stopped. Carl Buettner, Gil Turner, Dick Matena are regarded as the most notable Wolf creators featured in the title. More Big Bad Wolf has supplanted his son as title character of the stories. Bucky Bug stories began in issue #20 with a series of newspaper reprints. Bucky stories were monthly through 1950. Walt Kelly of Pogo fame did the cover art for many issues between #34 and #118 and provided interior art for issues # 34–41 and 43. Walt Disney's Comics and Stories has been the longest running Disney-based comic book in history, making it their flagship title. After reaching its 600th issue, it converted to prestige format and remained that way until the end of Gemstone Publishing's run at issue #698.
Boom Studios published the title from 2009 until 2011. In January 2015, IDW Publishing stated that they were going to be publishing it from July 2015, continuing the number sequence from #721. After issue #743, IDW renamed the title to Disney Comics and Stories, restarting the numbering from #1, but keeping the legacy numbering, which appears in the indicia in the contents page.

Mickey Mouse is a funny animal cartoon character and the mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928. An anthropomorphic mouse who wears red shorts, large yellow shoes, white gloves, Mickey is one of the world's most recognizable characters. Created as a replacement for a prior Disney character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey first appeared in the short Plane Crazy, debuting publicly in the short film Steamboat Willie, one of the first sound cartoons, he went on to appear in over 130 films, including The Band Concert, Brave Little Tailor, Fantasia. Mickey appeared in short films, but occasionally in feature-length films. Ten of Mickey's cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Beginning in 1930, Mickey has been featured extensively as a comic strip character.
His self-titled newspaper strip, drawn by Floyd Gottfredson, ran for 45 years. Mickey has appeared in comic books such as Disney Italy's Topolino, MM - Mickey Mouse Mystery Magazine, Wizards of Mickey, in television series such as The Mickey Mouse Club and others, he appears in other media such as video games as well as merchandising and is a meetable character at the Disney parks. Mickey appears alongside his girlfriend Minnie Mouse, his pet dog Pluto, his friends Donald Duck and Goofy, his nemesis Pete, among others. Though characterized as a cheeky lovable rogue, Mickey was rebranded over time as a nice guy seen as an honest and bodacious hero. In 2009, Disney began to rebrand the character again by putting less emphasis on his friendly, well-meaning persona and reintroducing the more menacing and stubborn sides of his personality, beginning with the video game Epic Mickey. "I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse." Mickey Mouse was created as a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, an earlier cartoon character created by the Disney studio for Charles Mintz, a film producer who distributed product through Universal Studios.
In the spring of 1928, with the series going strong, Disney asked Mintz for an increase in the budget. But Mintz instead demanded that Walt take a 20 percent budget cut, as leverage, he reminded Disney that Universal owned the character, revealed that he had signed most of Disney's current employees to his new contract. Angrily, Disney refused the deal and returned to produce the final Oswald cartoons he contractually owed Mintz. Disney was determined to restart from scratch; the new Disney Studio consisted of animator Ub Iwerks and a loyal apprentice artist, Les Clark, who together with Wilfred Jackson were among the few who remained loyal to Walt. One lesson Disney learned from the experience was to thereafter always make sure that he owned all rights to the characters produced by his company. In the spring of 1928, Disney asked Ub Iwerks to start drawing up new character ideas. Iwerks tried sketches of various animals, such as dogs and cats, but none of these appealed to Disney. A female cow and male horse were rejected.
They would turn up as Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar. A male frog was rejected, it would show up in Iwerks' own Flip the Frog series. Walt Disney got the inspiration for Mickey Mouse from a tame mouse at his desk at Laugh-O-Gram Studio in Kansas City, Missouri. In 1925, Hugh Harman drew some sketches of mice around a photograph of Walt Disney; these inspired Ub Iwerks to create a new mouse character for Disney. "Mortimer Mouse" had been Disney's original name for the character before his wife, convinced him to change it, Mickey Mouse came to be. The actor Mickey Rooney claimed that, during his Mickey McGuire days, he met cartoonist Walt Disney at the Warner Brothers studio, that Disney was inspired to name Mickey Mouse after him; this claim, has been debunked by Disney historian Jim Korkis, since at the time of Mickey Mouse's development, Disney Studios had been located on Hyperion Avenue for several years, Walt Disney never kept an office or other working space at Warner Brothers, having no professional relationship with Warner Brothers, as the Alice Comedies and Oswald cartoons were distributed by Universal.
Disney had Ub Iwerks secretly begin animating a new cartoon while still under contract with Universal. The cartoon was co-directed by Ub Iwerks. Iwerks was the main animator for the short and spent six weeks working on it. In fact, Iwerks was the main animator for every Disney short released in 1928 and 1929. Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising assisted Disney during those years, they had signed their contracts with Charles Mintz, but he was still in the process of forming his new studio and so for the time being they were still employed by Disney. This short would be the last. Mickey was first seen in a test screening of the cartoon short Plane Crazy, on May 15, 1928, but it failed to impress the audience and, to add insult to injury, Walt could not find a distributor. Though understandably disappointed, Walt went on to produce a second Mickey short, The Gallopin' Gaucho, not released for lack of a distributor. Steamboat Willie was first released on November 1928, in New York, it was co-directed by Ub Iwerks.
Iwerks again served as the head animator, assisted by Johnny Cannon, Les Clark, Wilfred Jackson and Dick Lundy. This short was intended as a parody of Buster Keaton'
W. I. T. C. H. is an Italian fantasy comics series written by Elisabetta Gnone, Alessandro Barbucci, Barbara Canepa. The series was first published by Disney Italy in April 2001 before the series was released in other countries; as of January 2005, W. I. T. C. H. has been released in over 65 countries. The final issue of W. I. T. C. H. was released in October 2012. It is about a group of girls who find out they are the new guardians of the elements of Water, Earth and Energy; the series tells the story of five teenage girls who are chosen to be the new Guardians of Kandrakar, protectors of the center of the universe from people and creatures who wish to cause harm to it. For this purpose, magical powers over the five classical elements have been given to them; the new guardians are Will, Taranee and Hay Lin, whose initials form the title acronym "W. I. T. C. H.". The comics are drawn in line with manga conventions, as opposed to the more rounded style traditionally used by Disney comics, they were subsequently adapted into an animated series, itself co-produced by Disney and taking visual cues from anime.
The first saga introduced. Years ago, Prince Phobos caused the disappearances of his parents and took over the capital city, Meridian. To prevent his spreading tyranny, the Oracle lowered a veil over the planet, separating Metamoor from the rest of the worlds under Kandrakar's protection. However, twelve portals opened between Meridian and Earth, creating a series of passageways for the desperate refugees and monsters of Meridian to infiltrate Earth; the portals weaken the veil and in order to prevent this, generations of Guardians were sent to protect it from collapsing. In the present day, five girls are chosen to become the new Guardians: Wilhelmina Vandom, the Guardian of Energy and the Keeper of the Heart, making her the leader. Together, they must prevent the collapse of the veil and promote justice throughout the universe under the guidance of the Oracle of Kandrakar; the first saga introduced Elyon Brown, a childhood friend of Cornelia. The Guardians' first mission was to close the twelve portals, but as they found out for themselves, Elyon had betrayed them.
It is revealed that Elyon is Prince Phobos's younger sister who had disappeared from Meridian more than a decade ago. After Prince Phobos's right-hand man, Lord Cedric, revealed Elyon of her true alien heritage, he manipulated her into thinking that the Guardians were her enemies; the Guardians had to find a way to bring Elyon back home. In Meridian, there is a rebellion taking place led by Caleb, whom Cornelia had seen in her dreams for years, they sought to put Elyon on the throne, as she is the legitimate ruler. The Guardians worked together with the rebels and Elyon realized her mistake for trusting her cruel brother. Prince Phobos had planned to absorb his sister's powers for himself during her coronation, but with the Guardians' help Elyon escaped and battled against him for the crown; the final battle was successful, but not without some losses. Prince Phobos transformed Caleb back into his most primitive form as a Whisperer; this devastated Cornelia to the point where it would haunt her in the next series.
As Elyon is crowned Queen and the Light of Meridian, the world of Metamoor is liberated. The Oracle lifted the veil off of light shines on the world once again. Both Prince Phobos and Cedric are imprisoned in the Tower of Mist; the Guardians must face an old enemy of Kandrakar – Nerissa, the corrupted ex-Guardian and the previous Keeper of the Heart. When the Oracle realized how the immense power of the Heart was corrupting Nerissa, he took it away from her and gave it to Cassidy, the former Guardian of Water. Obsessed with her lost power and blinded by jealousy, Nerissa killed her; as punishment, Nerissa was stripped of her magic and sentenced to sleep and friendless, in Mount Thanos for an eternity, only until all five elements-Water, Earth and Pure/Absolute Energy- united into one single being. When Cornelia accidentally, unknowingly, absorbed all five elements into herself, the seal on Nerissa's tomb broke, setting her free; when Caleb is kidnapped, the Guardians must face Nerissa along with her four Knights of Vengeance.
While successful in their rescue mission, they end up losing Luba who sacrificed herself to save them. Hoping to steal the Heart she craved for so long, Nerissa attacked the girls through their dreams in order to weaken them but failed, she was successful in stealing the Heart back by tricking Will into giving it to her. With the symbol and essence of Kandrakar itself now corrupted by Nerissa's hatred and vengeance, the former Guardian leader and her Knights of Vengeance attacked the sacred Temple of Kandrakar itself. Will acquired the Star of Cassidy, a copy of the mystical Heart from the spirit/ghost of Cassidy, the late and original Guardian of Water. With it, Will and her fellow Guardians faced Nerissa in Kandrakar. In the final battle, Nerissa was destroyed by the combined strength of the second generation of Guardians. Despite their victory, Cornelia is heartbroken when Caleb left her due to their complicated relationship. Crisis after crisis threatens to break up the girls once and for all.
Will's father, Thomas Vandom, returns into her life after years of absence, his intentions are anything but loving and trustful. Taranee went on strike because sh
Donald Duck (American comic book)
Donald Duck is an American comic book magazine starring the Disney character Donald Duck and published by various publishers since 1952. The first issue was released in November 1952, but the numeration started with #26 because the previous Four Color issues titled "Donald Duck", released between October 1942 and September 1952, were retroactively treated as part of the series: the numbering was the result of a mistake, as Four Color #422 was the 28th Four Color issue titled "Donald Duck". From 2003 to 2011, the comic was renamed Friends; when IDW took over publishing the title in May 2015 they restarted from #1, but retained the'legacy' numbering as a secondary number. Dell Comics, from issue #26 to issue #84 Gold Key Comics, from issue #85 to issue #211 Whitman Publishing, from issue #212 to issue #245 Gladstone Publishing, from issue #246 to issue #307 Gemstone Publishing, from issue #308 to issue #346.
