This is what an anniversary issue should be. A look back at the stories and characters that have made this comic last. And unlike Disney's abandon water park, there isn't any brain eating amoeba to muck it up. Donald, Goofy, Mickey, Lil' Bad Wolf, Scamp, Gremlins, and Chip and Dale are all magnificently spotlighted here. The best part is the history of the title. Fascinating facts and great shout outs to the past artists and writers who worked on the book showed a real appreciation for what is being celebrated here. Fully worth the $5.99 price tag.
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
