    Description

    Four Color (Series One) #16 Mickey Mouse (Dell, 1941) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages. Disney Comics don't get much more important than this one, the very first Mickey Mouse comic book. It's the fondly remembered story "Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot," with Mickey in detective mode. And this was far from the last time Disney fans saw Mickey's adversary -- the Phantom Blot returned to menace other characters, and he even had his own comic in the 1960s! The art in this key issue is by the most important Mouse artist, Floyd Gottfredson. As almost all surviving copies are low-grade (Overstreet doesn't even list values above VF for the book), our offering measures up quite nicely. Overstreet 2004 VG 4.0 value = $2,700.
