After being on hiatus since 2011, Mickey Mouse is returning to the pages of comic books on July 1, 2015 when IDW Publishing begins a monthly serial titled WALT DISNEY'S MICKEY MOUSE that will feature the beloved character in brand new adventures.  Mickey Mouse first appeared in his own comic book story in 1941 and over the years his stories have continued through a variety of publishers which all maintained continuity with issue numbering until the series culminated with Boom! Studios' Mickey Mouse #309.  In 2011 after acquiring Marvel, Disney opted not to renew its licensing agreement with Boom! Studios as it was determining how it was going to merge its new acquisition into its corporate family.  So there has been a void in comic books featuring Disney's Mickey Mouse and friends characters until this year when IDW Publishing picked up the license to bring them back to life in print.

The first issue of IDW's MICKEY MOUSE will hit stores on July 1, 2015 and will have duel numbering on its cover being billed as #1 (#310) highlighting the beginning of the series with the new publisher but maintaining the legacy of the overall continuation of stories featuring the character since the 1940s.  This new issue will feature Mickey Mouse in a jungle trek as he travels "The Lost Explorers' Trail" and has a run in with the daredevil Eurasia Toft during the adventure.  The comic book will be 48 pages, retail for $3.99 and be available in a primary jungle themed cover plus a variant one that celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Disney Land amusement park.

Mickey Mouse will be joining Uncle Scrooge, Donald Duck, and Walt Disney's Comics & Stories as  Disney themed comic book series.  For more information, visit
