Disney Comics and Stories #13 (Review)
We get three very cute short stories in this week’s issue of Disney Comics and Stories #13, all featuring your favorite trio of Mickey, Donald, and Goofy. It was a pleasure to review the latest entry into the series and go back to my childhood. Disney will always have a special place in my heart and IDW never fails to disappoint with their Disney comics.

“Join Mickey Mouse and his friends for new adventures! First, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy find themselves the targets of a shrink ray in “Mickey in Miniature”! Then, Donald is late for his date with Daisy at the park and has to come up with a creative solution in “Donald and the Parking Problem”! And finally, Goofy brings his special skills to acrobatic skiing in “Goofy Off Piste”!”
Right off the bat, I knew I wanted to check this issue out, if not for the cover art alone. I have read a fair share of Disney Comics over the years and they have continuously gotten better and better. Disney Comics and Stories is basically a collection of 3 short stories, each one with its own unique theme. This week judging by the cover, Mickey, Donald and Goofy are in some serious trouble and trapped it seems for some kind of scientific experiment. Pete seems to be enjoying himself at their mercy, poor guys. What I truly love about this franchise is that you get short, easy to read comics you do not have to invest a lot of time in. The characters are universally known so no plotline to follow is necessary.
The art style itself is also quite unique in true Disney fashion. We get a mix of old school and new school all done by various artists. The bright colors help further tell the story and draw the reader in. I haven’t picked up an issue in this series for a long time so it was nice to get a chance to check it out. My favorite plot out of three included in the 48-page issue was “Donald and the Parking Problem”. It was just hilarious, well written, and easy to digest. The ending was also a bit of curveball, so well done! We all need some laughs these days and this series continues to do just that, make us laugh and smile. I feel this series is targeted towards both longtime Disney fans and younger ones who will enjoy it. Adult fans will of course be able to finish it fast but it’s still nice to pick up from time to time. I can’t wait for the next issue and I recommend you check this one out and all future other ones.
Disney Comics and Stories #13 is available now for purchase.
