Disney's Four-Color Adventures Volume 1 Reviews
The first half of this book contains a nice collection of Al Taliaferro's Donald Duck comic strip (long overdue) and, on its own, gets a strong 4 stars. I can't give it a perfect five for two reasons. First is that this is a reprint of a reprint and retains the first reprint's blotchy coloring. Secondly, a handful of the strips really weren't up to the quality of the rest; this is especially maddening because some of the very best Taliaferro strips weren't included but could have been if it wasn't for these weaker strips taking up space.The second half of the book, a comics tie-in to Walt Disney's "Reluctant Dragon" feature, certainly isn't terrible but isn't really good either and brings the overall rating down to 3 stars.Still, the first half was totally worth the money I forked over, and I think you'll feel the same way too. I've been wanting a more durable collection of Taliaferro's stuff, and this book gave me just that.
The first half, which reprints Donald Duck daily strips by Al Taliaferro, is great. The second half, which reprints The Reluctant Dragon and related stories, can be skipped.
I really loved how the Sorcerer's Apprentice and the Reluctant Dragon was in there.
