Disney comics

Disney comics are Comic books and Comic strips featuring Walt Disney characters.

Disney characters started their life in comics in 1930, with Mickey Mouse daily strips, later other characters, like Donald Duck, gained their own strip.

Comic books came later, in the 1940s, and books like Walt Disney's Comics and Stories and Uncle Scrooge were very successful in the 1950s and in the 1960s in USA.

In the rest of the world Disney comics have kept being successful, especially in Europe, where stories are produced and also printed in the pocket format.

Disney comics were originally published by Western Publishing; later they were published by Gladstone and by Disney Comics, then Gladstone again (for the classic characters) and Marvel Comics (for the modern characters). In 2003, after a couple of years hiatus, publications are starting again by Gemstone Comics.
