What Did You Do, Daan?

Tuesday Comic Strip Day.

As well known as Dutch Disney artist Daan Jippes is, his short runs as artist on the Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck strips in the eighties is pretty scarce. Especiall the Mickey Mouse run in late 1981 and 1982. I know it, becaue it ran on the back of the Dutch Donald Duck weekly, but I have never seen any color samples of the actual Sundays. The Mickey Mouse strip was pretty badly dispributed at that time and it was a wonder they even kept it alive. Here is a couple of months worth in pretty bad condition. Wat survives will illustrate what an impression these made when I first saw them in 1982.
