Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse Vol. 4: "House Of The Seven Haunts!" (Hardcover)
In this volume, Mickey Mouse and the gang ghost-bust and discover an island in the sky.
Who says dead men tell no tales? When grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize, they’ll find fearless Mickey all ready to rumble — as soon as he’s done fighting gangsters, bandits, and international men of mystery, that is! From Africa to Eastern Europe, our favorite big cheese is in for terrifying thrills — and he’s bringing Goofy, Donald Duck, and that big palooka Pegleg Pete along for the ride! When Mickey sets out to eject “The Seven Ghosts” from Bassett Manor, he finds more than just specters providing the scares! Next, moving smoothly from horror to science fiction, our hero discovers an awesome “Island in the Sky”— and meets its maker, the powerful atomic scientist Dr. Einmug! Lovingly restored from Disney’s original negatives and proof sheets, House of the Seven Haunts! also includes more than 50 pages of spooky supplementary features! You’ll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and fascinating commentary by a haunted houseful of Disney scholars.
