Media Release — BOOM Kids! is proud to announce the upcoming release of the brand-new epic adventure “Mickey Mouse on Quandomai Island” in the pages of WALT DISNEY’S COMICS this summer! Written and drawn by Italian modern Mickey master Casty, the creative mastermind behind this Spring’s instant classic “Mickey Mouse and the World to Come,” this story finds Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Pete shipwrecked on the mysterious Quandomai Island, where ancient beasts run wild and nothing is as it seems!
BOOM Kids! is pleased that the release of part 1 of “Mickey Mouse on Quandomai Island,” happening this June, comes hot on the heels of the story’s initial Italian release this past Spring! Mickey fans the world over will revel in this brand-sparkling-new, cutting-edge story by a world-famous creator at the top of his game!
“Casty is a modern master that soon will be spoken about in the same breath as Floyd Gottfredson, Romano Scarpa and William Van Horn,” says BOOM Kids! Editor Aaron Sparrow. “It’s exciting to bring this brand-new Mickey epic adventure to North American audiences so soon after its Italian premiere.”
The four part serial “Mickey Mouse on Quandomai Island” premieres in WALT DISNEY’S COMICS #707 this June, featuring a cover by Jonathan Gray, and a wrap-around cover by Casty and is translated by Disney comics fan-favorites David Gerstein and Jonathan Gray!
