You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

This comical cover is from issue no. 697 (October 2008) of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories (still available wherever fine comics are sold), and is a delight as Donald (wearing his nightshirt complete with some not-too-hidden Mickeys) is caught trying to guess what's inside his gift box.

Speaking of guessing what gifts are in store, issue number 700 of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories is coming up in 2009. What surprises are in store in what will surely be a special issue of Disney's long-running flagship comic book? Perhaps if David Gerstein or someone else at Gemstone is reading this, they could drop a hint or two...
