Issue No. 1
This month marks the 67th anniversary of Disney’s flagship comic book, Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories. The Disney comic anthology was an instant hit when it was first published in October 1940, and it has been printed almost continuously ever since. Today’s Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories is published in the prestige squarebound 64-page “comic album” format, and still features the winning formula of stories starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and such delightful backups as Bucky Bug, Grandma Duck, Scamp and Li’l Bad Wolf. Donald got things started as the comic book’s cover subject on Issue No. 1—and the temperamental Duck has been spotlighted on most of the 685 issues published since that first 1940 issue.
