In June Donald Duck will be celebrating his 85th birthday. I don’t expect Donald to get as much fanfare as Mickey Mouse is getting for his 90th, but today we get our first glimpse of a product that mentions celebrating his 85th in the product description.
On October 8th, IDW will Be releasing a book called Young Donald.
Product Description from its Amazon listing:
Celebrate Donald’s 85th anniversary with this eight-part story focusing on his early years!
Life at the farm is not easy, especially when you are twelve years old and you really can’t stand life getting in the way of YOUR life! But all of a sudden, Donald finds himself thrown into a new one that might be much better when he moves to the big city to attend a fancy school with lots of new kids to become friends with. However, things are actually not as easy as they seem. Donald will fall in love, deal with new teachers, homework, assorted crazy adventures, and realize that growing up is really difficult, especially when you are really only a kid!
