Russian Mickey Mouse!

Here's an oddity from my collection that I completely forgot about until I ran across it in a box the other day... a Russian-language MICKEY MOUSE comic book! Behold:



It's dated 1990, so I guess once that wall went down the valiant forces of capitalism fanned out across the countryside of the old Soviet Union looking to spread the joys of freedom, democracy and liberty, and perhaps to make a few rubles on the side! Anyway, this comic says that it's the "1st Russian Version Mickey Mouse Magazine - 1990 Limited Issue - $10 Suggested Retail Price". Other than that, I know very little else, as this comic is still (*blush*) sealed in it's original shrinkwrap bag... sorry about that.

мышь mickey будет коммунистом!

I'll bet you own 3 copies of that book (unopened, no less) and you plan on putting your kid through college. Were there any variant covers? Better get 3 copies each of those too!

Ah, the collector's mania of the 90's. How I miss it.

It is sad. Theoretically, I bought a comic book that I can't even read!
