Preview of Walt Disney’s Treasury of Classic Tales, Vol. 1

Idw and Disney Comics release Walt Disney’s Treasury of Classics Tales Vol. 1 this Wednesday, collecting the Sunday newspaper comic strip adaptations of some of Disney’s biggest movie releases; check out a preview here…

From the early 1950s through the late ’80s, the Disney studio created Sunday comics adaptations of more than 120 of their animated and live-action films that were currently in movie theaters. The chronological all-star line-up in this first volume is an almost embarrassment of riches: the animated Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, Peter and the Wolf, and two pre-cursers to the series, Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland! The live-action adaptations are: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Robin Hood, The Sword and the Rose, Ben and Me, and Rob Roy. Disney stalwarts Manuel Gonzales and Dick Moores drew the cartoon adaptations, while the live-action stories were illustrated by legendary Tarzan artist Jesse Marsh!

I re-read the first five books about 12 years ago and I enjoyed them, albeit with a nostalgically jaundiced eye.

I was both amazed and, oddly, not surprised (they’re two different emotions) when my father told me he was a John Carter fan. He started reading them around 1928 – by then, the first book was about 16 years old. Sharing this bond was quite comforting: both John Carter, my father, and I were created in Chicago over a 38 year span.

There have been numerous comics adaptations. The first was for the newspapers and for Dell Comics, created by Burroughs’ son John Coleman Burroughs. Gold Key tried a few issues; despite Jesse Marsh’s art,
