Fantagraphics 2022 Disney Masters Books Revealed

The Fantagraphics Disney Masters book series continues with some recently revealed volumes that will be coming next year.

Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse: Trapped in the Shadow Dimension: Disney Masters Vol. 19

Release Date: April 26, 2022

Disney Masters: Andrea “Casty” Castellan and StefanoZannchi

Mickey Mouse is up against menacing shadows, monster robots, and a dimension of danger in epic comics adventures by modern-day Disney fan favorite Andrea “Casty” Castellan!

All of Mouseton is swooning over the odd “Mr. Benevolence,” a masked philanthropist who can’t stop doing good ― or can he? Mickey thinks he’s behind the vanishing of the atomic genius Dr. Einmug ― and the arrest of Einmug’s otherworldly helper, Atomo Bleep-Bleep! But things get strange when the villainous Pegleg Pete turns up where Mickey least expects him: a “Shadow Dimension” in which fiction becomes fact!

Walking in the footsteps of Disney giants Floyd Gottfredson and Romano Scarpa, Italian writer/artist Andrea “Casty” Castellan is among today’s most inspired and beloved Mickey Mouse comics creators. After many reader requests, Fantagraphics Books is thrilled to present the first Disney Masters volume by the beloved Disney cartoonist Casty!

And “Trapped in the Shadow Dimension” is just the start! Also: in this volume, Scrooge McDuck squares off with “The Terrible, Terrible Triple-Dimensional Beagle Boy”… while in “The World to Come,” Mickey and Minnie are headed to far-off Illusitania for royal intrigue, robot war… and a showdown with that dastardly, poetic secret agent, The Rhyming Man!

Walt Disney’s Donald Duck: 10,000 Leaks Under the Sea: Disney Masters Vol. 20

Release Date: June 28, 2022

Disney Masters: Dick Kinney and Al Hubbard

Wild Silver Age comics classics follow squabbling Donald and Fethry Duck from hillbilly country to the briny deep!

Who lives in a submarine under the sea? Donald’s cuckoo-bananas cousin Fethry, that’s who! He’s roping desperate Don into a two-week treasure hunt on the ocean floor… and a bear-taming trip to Duckburg’s deepest woods―and a mission to cure hiccups with scary hillbilly remedies! Are fame and fortune worth it?

Cartoon story man Dick Kinney (1916-1985) and beloved kids’-comic artist Al Hubbard (1913-1984) jammed on Disney duck tales in the swinging ’60s―and by popular demand, Fantagraphics’ Disney Masters series continues to collect their best! From Fethry’s terrifying turn as Uncle Scrooge’s efficiency expert in “It’s Only Money” to Donald’s romantic woes in “A Midsummer’s Nightmare,” the mayhem keeps on coming!

Disney Master: Paul Murry

In this collection of comics stories, Mickey and Goofy are trapped in cold and snow with a monster below!

Adventure-seeking Mickey doesn’t usually regret being Chief O’Hara’s freelance detective ― but all bets are off when the Chief pitchforks Mickey and Goofy into saving Cousin Frosty’s winter resort from a monster! From snowballs to cliffside falls, deadly accidents have Sawtooth Mountain in an uproar … and if a man-eating yeti isn’t responsible, who is? And “Sawtooth Mountain” is just the start! Mickey confronts mystical Hawaiian elves in “Pineapple Poachers”… and is forced to reform the villainous Pegleg Pete in “Mickey’s Strange Mission!” A recreation of the stories’ original Dell Comics color is icing on the cake. Full-color illustrations throughout
