I have a copy of a wonderful collection of out-of-print Mickey Mouse comics from the 1930s and 40s.
The strips are all signed by Walt Disney, but were in fact drawn by Floyd Gottfredson, a young Disney animator who inherited the newspaper strip from Walt after the first few strips and continued to draw Mickey's newspaper adventures into the 1960s.
Mickey Mouse was a favourite comic strip of Franklin D. Roosevelt among other important figures of the mid-20th Century. (Benito Mussolini, for instance, reportedly forbid the publication of all American comic strips in Italy except for Mickey Mouse. Hitler, on the other hand, hated him.)
I'll be posting the rest of this story and others from the collection in the future as time permits.
