A grown man reading a Disney comic in the United States may get (got) more than a few stares, but I believe this book is worth dealing with some stares. Is it groundbreaking literature? No. Is it full of adult themes? No. Does it have an entertaining story, comical moments, and some morals hidden way down, yes. I read this book by myself at first, but a little while later I read it to my daughter and she seemed to enjoy it. Since she is only 18 months, it can be a little hard to tell. I can almost guarantee you that she was as entertained by the voices I made up to go with the story as she was by the story itself and the illustrations. This book is well worth the money, and will take you back to that place where you where just a kid with a rolled up comic in your back pocket. I can't wait to see what else Boom Studios has instore for us. I'm giving Mickey Mouse and Friends #296 4 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review
Overall Mickey Mouse and Friends will surely delight the younger audience if they have the patience to finish the story. Personally, I think this is a trade-waiting situation in the making. I can see parents sitting down and reading this to their kids much like my parents did with me and the Disney picture books. As a single issue you’re probably going to get a nostalgia kick unless you’re under ten years old. The story isn’t anything but average. It’s not bad considering the series is bringing a new generation something the rest of the world has known for years. Read Full Review
I haven't been a regular reader of "Mickey Mouse & Friends" since back in the 1970s, but this book feels as genuine and enjoyable to me as it did back then. I'm glad that BOOM! Kids keeps finding new titles to give readers who enjoy all ages comics. It certainly is nice to be able to hand my kids something off the new releases shelf as I gather my own reading choices.
