About Silly Symphonies Volume 2: The Complete Disney Classics 1935-1939
This second of four volumes presents the spectacular Sunday pages from 1935 to 1939, featuring the first comic strip adaptation of a feature-length film—Snow White…the original Donald Duck series, plus the Three Little Pigs (and the Big Bad Wolf, of course), Elmer the Elephant, Pluto, Goofy, and the Three Little Kittens. The artwork for these rare strips has come straight from the Disney vaults, each page meticulously colored using as a guide the original file copies that belonged to Walt Disney himself!
“This is a handsome book with lots of extras to enhance the wonderful comic strips… In his informative introduction, J.B. Kaufman uses the phrase ‘collected and preserved’ when he describes the strips in this book and I can’t think of a better way of putting it. This series, along with IDW’s entire Library of American Comics line, has found lost, forgotten treasures of comic strip art, restored and collected them in beautiful hardcover books, to preserve them for future generations to read and enjoy. We’re gonna need a bigger book shelf!” —Rich Clabaugh, Christian Science Monitor
