Mickey Mouse Weekly #584 from England - July 21st, 1951
The wait is over, issue #584 begins our Alice in Wonderland serialization, and less than a week before the world premiere in London!
I love the little Alice inset on the front cover, I may have to steal this for something.
And as promised in previous issues, the first of the Alice in Wonderland painting competitions - now retitled colouring competition (those brits and their superfluous U's). Splendid cash prizes indeed!
And last but not least, chapter one of the serialization, where Alice, Dinah, and her sister rest under a tree before Alice is captivated by a passing White Rabbit!
Major pointed out that I have been remiss in my postings. Some details on the art in the adaptation. The art is painted, by a gentleman named Ronald Neilson from England. To the best of my knowledge, the art was created for this publication, but I do know that the art was reprinted at one time in Turkey of all places. For details on this comic, or any other comic for that matter, you should visit the Disney Comics Database, listed in my sidebar. A vast resource maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers all over the world.
