It's a little tough to give a proper review of Walt Disney’s Treasury of Classic Tales Volume 3. It isn't your average omnibus or anthology collection. Long before Marvel and Disney tied the knot, Disney had a line of comics in morning newspapers. Based on various properties ranging from iconic Mickey Mouse stories to adaptations of films like Big Red, Disney comics are an old and varied lot. As a fan of older Disney properties, I picked up Walt Disney’s Treasury of Classic Tales Volume 3 with a lot of excitement.
My childhood was steeped in '80s culture. Certain franchises were ingrained in my daily life: Transformers, Ghostbusters, and, of course, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So, imagine my excitement at getting my hands on the Tales of TMNT Omnibus.
I'm a cynic by nature. I like to pick apart things and complain about what could have been and what should be. It takes a lot to crack my thick hide. I'm extremely pleased to say that A Girl in the Himalayas, published by Archaia, succeeded after the first few pages.
