Mickey Mouse Weekly #621 from England - April 5th, 1952

And so we have reached then end of our series with issue 621, Mickey and Goofy still clowning around, and continuing on for who knows how many more issues, sorry about that.
The Unicorn wants to fight, and Alice directs him to the Walrus as it is he that has stolen the White King's crown.
Alas, we see Alice 'crowned' of sorts, but only because she happens to be underneath the crown when it falls.  And then she wakes up.

All in all, not a bad story, but of course not very faithful to the original, the film was more faithful to Wonderland than this is to Looking Glass.  Still, a lot of fun.

Mickey Mouse Weekly was published for something like 22 years from 1936-1957.  There are these two Alice adaptations, and later there was a series of strips with the Walrus and Carpenter.  I have a few of those, but I have no idea how many were produced.

Yes, the story has some action and gags, but no real "heart". Or anything really at stake, for that matter. Still, it was a fascinating read, sort of a "lost story"!
