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.

No April Fool's Joke

As has been reported widely across the Web, Gemstone Publishing has stopped publishing its line of Disney comics. This is especially sad as Disney's long-running flagship title Walt Disney's Comics and Stories was fast approaching its 700th issue, with Gemstone having stopped with issue 698. At least the next several issues were prepared, however, and some future issues are still listed on as available for pre-order. This perhaps bears out Gemstone's Steve Geppi's recent assertion that the Disney Comics will most likely continue in some form. Let's hope that includes issue 700 and beyond. In the meantime here's the April Fool-ish cover for issue 189, June 1956, drawn by Disney comic great Paul Murry, of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories.
