So...you only read books aimed at imbeciles?

Sorry, but the set up was too good to let pass. :twisted:

Walt Disney Comics and Stories #701

This comic wasn't really for me. It's written for kids and it reads like it. The Donald and Daisy stuff was cute, but that was the only portion of the comic that held my interest. Other than the major players (Mickey/Goofy/Donald/Daisy/Scrooge) I wasn't familiar with most of the cast so that made it a bit hard to get into and the length was also kind of a problem. For something like this I'd rather the comic be a short burst of fun, this felt like it was long just for the sake of being long.

I'm sorry, but I can't review this with an unbiased point of view. I didn't think I'd like it going in, and... it sucked. Self-fulfilling prophecy or not. It clearly wasn't written for me, so maybe it's good for it's intended audience, but I don't see it. For this same reason.

The art, however, was pretty good for what it was.

Story-wise, that was really, really basic even for a kid's story. Having Mickey & Co. as superheroes was on the lame side and except for Donald and Daisy, none of the characters stood out.

Art-wise, it was better than I expected.
