One of the nice things about Disney comics is that you always know there will be a certain level of quality going in. Most ring true with us on at least some level. Today’s comic, Donald & Mickey: Treasure Menace in Venice, despite the name, actually contains several stories: "Treasure Menace in Venice," "The Terrifying World of Tutor," and "Livin' the Dream."
It's difficult to quantify Doctor Who. The series has stretched through multiple generations, soft reboots, and spinoffs. While some folks might love one iteration of the character, they may find another less compelling. Doctor Who: Seventh Doctor #1: Operation Volcano naturally follows the 7th version of the iconic character, famously played by Sylvester McCoy in the TV series.
If you're unfamiliar with the Transformers, they're just about the coolest robots to ever grace toy shelves across America. What started as a relatively simple line of toys has expanded into one of the most complex brands ever. From reboot after reboot on TV to the comics switching timelines and continuities left and right, it can be hard to know exactly what is going on in this universe.
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.
