‘Mickey Outwits The Phantom Blot’ Has The Best And Worst Of Mickey Mouse In A Single Hardcover [Review]

Mickey Outwits the Phantom Blot by Floyd Gottfredson

Ever since Fantagraphics started up their collection of Floyd Gottfredson's Mickey Mouse strips, I've been looking forward to finally getting to read "Mickey Outwits The Phantom Blot." This was the story that I'd heard of even when I wasn't paying attention to Disney comics from the '30s, the influential saga that provided Mickey with his most intriguing villain, and one that returned again and again over the years and inspired creators like Osamu Tezuka. It came with a pretty solid reputation, and when I finally got to it in the latest hardcover, I've got to admit that it lived up to it. It's every bit as exciting as I'd hoped it would be.

Unfortunately, it's collected in a book alongside some of the most grotesquely offensive stories that I've ever read. That's the sort of thing that spoils the experience a bit, even when you're making allowances for the time.

Katsuhiro Otomo, Frozen, Adventure Time, Futurama and Mickey Mouse Win Top Honors at 2013 Annie Awards

Untitled-2

The competition was brutal during last weekend's Annie Awards, the International Animated Film Society's celebration of an uncommonly strong year in animation for film, television, commercials and games. For example, it stung to see our beloved Teen Titans Go! lose the award for Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production For Children’s Audience, but that the winner was the similarly excellent Adventure Time made the pill easier to swallow. But easier still was the master Katsuhiro Otomo taking home the Winsor McCay Award for lifetime achievement in animation. That pill is good for health.

Adventure Time, Mickey Mouse And TRON Artists Win Outstanding Individual Achievement Emmys

Untitled-2

A few of our favorite animated projects and their creators were recognized by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences this week with awards for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation. Unsurprisingly Adventure Time's Andy Ristaino won for character design while the new Mickey Mouse short, "Croissant de Triomphe," earned artists Jenny Gase-Baker and Joseph Holt prizes in background paint and art direction, respectively. Of course the superlative work of Alberto Mielgo on TRON: Uprising was honored with an art direction trophy, which just makes the cancelation of that most impressive new adventure series sting all the more.

Mickey Mouse Returns In Amazing New Shorts By Animators Behind ‘Gravity Falls’ & ‘My Little Pony’ [Video]

mickey-mouse-donald-duck-animated-disney-cartoon

Mickey Mouse is one of animation's most enduring but paradoxically dull icons. But it wasn't always that way. Created by Walt Disney in the late 1920s, Mickey appeared in some truly brilliant films throughout the '30s and '40s, some in black and white and some in color, but almost always in some astonishingly clever, very funny and frequently groundbreaking animated works like Steamboat Willie, Building a Building, The Brave Little Tailor and of course Fantasia. But with notable exceptions of 1983's A Christmas Carol adaptation and 2010's Epic Mickey video game, the character has been little more than a harmless corporate mascot for the majority of his existence. As Walt Disney's signature creation, it's a fitting and auspicious role for Mickey, but also something of a waste of one of American animation's most visible characters.

Fortunately for animation fans, Disney agrees. In what's obviously an earnest effort to resurrect the classic spirit of Mickey Mouse for the 21st century, the studio has enlisted a fantastic assortment of talents from shows like The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic and Sym-Bionic Titan to honor the brilliant works of the past with an all-new series of genuinely funny and beautifully designed short films set to air on the Disney Channel this summer.

The Stephanie Brown Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 1

01stephaniebrown-1356317179

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy and produc
