    Four Color Comics #16 (Dell, 1941). This is the first Mickey Mouse comic book from 1941. There were other publications featuring Mickey but this is the first "real" comic. The cover and interior art were done by Floyd Gottfredson. Almost never seen in an unrestored grade, this book has astounding colors, is flat, and has no major creases. Defects include a small piece off the top of spine front cover, and a small piece off the top back cover, and bottom spine back cover. All in all, the perfect book for the Disney collector. CGC VG- 3.5 Light tan to off-white pages. Overstreet 2001 GD2.0 value = $1,000; FN 6.0 value = $3,000.
