Disney Comics

Donald Duck & Mickey Mouse

Series II --- Issues 1-7

Why is there a Series I and a Series II for the Gladstone comic books? When our original license expired (Series I), the Walt Disney Company took over publishing the comics themselves, but after three years -- despite help from Gladstone -- Disney threw in the towel and gave the license back, and Series II was born. This is why, when looking at the comics that Disney published and those that Gladstone published, some titles have numerical gaps, time lags or numbers that were repeated. Despite this minor confusion (all of which had an amazing logic!), we feel the Series II books are far superior in printing, color, paper and often in content! Because of problems in the distribution industry, all the standard-sized monthly titles eventually were incorporated into two monthly 64-page, square-bound comics, Uncle Scrooge and Walt Disney's Comics & Stories. Looking back, we feel these are the comic books that reflect the best of Gladstone.
