Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
44 posts | 1 read
Floyd Gottfredson, artist of Mickey Mouse from 1930-1975, made it the most popular cartoon-based comic of its time. Unafraid to tackle social satire and grown-up action-adventure, Gottfredson produced a Mouse for all ages. Today as Disney'sEpic Mickey video game brings Mickey s gutsy side to a new medium. Fantagraphics Mickey Mouse series shows just how long Mickey has been a hero! In this book you ll relive Mickey s fight with pirates on desolate Treasure Island; his quest with Goofy to catch ruthless counterfeiters; and his battles to save windy Horace Horsecollar from mad scientists, a robbery frame-up and himself! Lovingly restored from Disney s original negatives and proof sheets, Mickey Mouse: Trapped on Treasure Island also includes more than 50 pages of fascinating supplementary features. You ll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and vivid commentary by a full team of seasoned Disney scholars. Walt Disney often said that his studio s success all started with a mouse and today Mickey is among the world s most recognizable icons in the world. Now it s time to rediscover the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon: Floyd Gottfredson s Mickey Mouse. "

Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson

#Trappedonanisland starts April 1st... no joke! We're hoping you'll join us. Got a huge TBR pile and not sure what to read? Let someone help you decide!

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island".
- You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. The more books on your shelf the better.
⬇️

aperfectmjk - Each month at the start of the month you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 or 10 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf.
- You will create a post that showcases the 5 or 10 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.⬇️
5d
aperfectmjk - You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading.

If you want to participate, start working on your goodreads shelf now. Post a link to your shelf in the comments below.

@julieclair you‘re #TrappedonanIsland. Thankfully, there‘s a chest of books on the island, too.
I hope you enjoy the selection. I‘ve only read Winter Garden but I loved it. 🤓 Happy reading!

Thank you for organizing this Malina!

julieclair @Read4life Ooohhh…. Love these selections! Thank you so much! 👍💙📚🌴🏝️📚 3w

Matches are in!

I am going to try and start posting the monthly reminder during the middle of the month going forward. I have a calendar reminder set for the 15th of the month so that we have plenty of time to plan going forward. We're also going to need some new recruits to keep it fun so we don't end up picking from the same lists every month. My fault entirely for the lack of exposure.

Bear with me while I get everyone's matches posted.

There‘s romance, but there‘s also some suspense thrown in. The Lost Man is one of Jane Harpers best novels & I loved Shelter In Place. Enjoy!😘♥️♥️

aperfectmjk @ETALTON absolutely! Work on putting a shelf together on Goodreads called Trapped On An Island and post a link here. You can view others lists to get an idea. I have a running shelf that I use every month that has titles that have been on my TBR the longest. Others add titles based on their monthly challenges. Just make sure you add enough titles for your match to choose from. 3mo

aperfectmjk @Soscha... you have only 10 books on your list. You basically picked your own books. The idea is that your match is supposed to look at your list and pick books for you from books on the list. Do you want only 5 picks, or do you want to add a few more to the list? I'm working on getting matches together right now. Sorry I didn't notice this sooner. 4mo

Repost for @aperfectmjk

#trappedonanisland will resume starting 12/1. You can use your current trappedonanisland Goodreads shelf, or you can create a holiday shelf and share that if you want. I started a WinterGames shelf before it was canceled, so I think I'm just going to roll with it. This is a great way to finish off those random yearly challenges. Let us help you pick those reads.

For more info visit their page.

Allylu #WinterGames was canceled? How did I not know this??? @Clwojick 4mo
Clwojick @Allylu Well be back for next year, we just had too many personal plans to be able to host the event in the way that we normally do. It takes a lot of time to prep, leading up to the event, and a lot of time keeping up with everything during. We didn‘t want to let people down by delivering a subpar event, so we felt it would be best to simply wait until next year when we could give it our all again. Sorry for the disappointment. 😔 4mo
Allylu @Clwojick I understand completely. I wasn't trying to be critical, just surprised I hadn't heard about it. The other people that were planning to host various events can still do them and give you two a break. I love #WinterGames & #Scarathlon and especially being on your teams! I hope you have a rejuvenating holiday season. If there is ever anything I can do to help you out, please let me know. 4mo
Clwojick @Allylu thanks for being understanding. I know a lot of people were looking forward to it, but so far everyone has been super understanding. Just means we‘ll have to make next year extra special! 😉 4mo

Those that have signed up, please let me know if you would be interested in having 10 books wash ashore instead of 5. I myself am making a bingo card that is all about the unknown. Library holds, #trappedonanisland, and Spin The Wheel app.

Hey everyone! If you're participating in #Scarathlon2022, considering joining us in #trappedonanisland. Let someone help you choose between those spooky reads.

Here's how it works.

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island" or for this month you can also use a shelf called "scarathlon2022".
⬇️

aperfectmjk - You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. Or you can just do spooky selections for #Scarathlon2022. The more books on your shelf the better, this keeps things fun for your match. 6mo
aperfectmjk - Each month at the start of the month you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf or #Scarathlon2022 shelf.
- You will create a post that showcases the 5 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.
6mo
aperfectmjk - You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading.

If you want to participate, start working on your goodreads shelf now. Post a link to your shelf in the comments below.

MatchlessMarie Good idea! 6mo
aperfectmjk I've already started my Scarathlon2022 shelf. I'm definitely going to need some help deciding what to read. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/46824567-malina-skrobosinski?shelf=scarath... 6mo

This useless crab was able to arrange to send these books over to your island, but not get me out of here! Welp, I suppose there is reading to do while I plot my revenge. 😅🦀 @TheAromaofBooks Your list had a lot of books I am tempted to add to my own! I enjoyed Sharp Objects a couple years back and there‘s a series to watch when you‘re done! #trappedonanisland @aperfectmjk

Your cruise ship goes down, and your suitcase full of books goes down with it. You survive, you make it to an island, but not all your books make it with you. Only FIVE books survive the ordeal. Which books make it to the island with you? Join us in the Trapped On An Island challenge to find out.

To join, create a Goodreads shelf called "Trapped on an Island" and post a link to your shelf here. ⬇️

aperfectmjk You will be paired with someone who will pick 5 books from your shelf. Each person will then post a pic with their selections for the other person. 8mo

Clwojick I‘m just seeing this now, but I want to join in. I blame the lack of sleep, but I‘m slightly confused. Will I eventually be reading from my shelf, or the shelf of whom I‘m paired with? Just want to make sure before I choose my books! 8mo
Clwojick Nevermind, I went through some posts and I understand it better now. Also, is this going to be an ongoing challenge! This would be such a fun add on to other challenges like #Scarathlon and #Wintergames. Easy enough to change up the books, as the months go on. 💚 8mo
aperfectmjk @Clwojick if people enjoy it, we can definitely continue it. I just thought it would be something fun and different because I'm so bad at reading some of the books that have been on my tbr for a while. I seem to always go for the new releases so I figured if I had a challenge that pushes me to read them I would do better 8mo
Clwojick Totally makes sense! I‘m so all over the place with the books that I read, that I find these monthly readathons really help me to focus on specific things I need to get to. I‘m doing ARCs and NetGalleys for August, and Series in September. Then it‘s straight into #Scarathlon, #nonfictionnovember and #WinterGames. I‘m going to try to find one for each month, so it will fun to change out the #TrappedOnAnIsland picks each month. 8mo
aperfectmjk @Clwojick I'm glad it's going to work out for you. I have over 200 books on my list that I'm just going to keep on there in an effort to get through them. We'll see how well this challenge works. 😆 8mo

The time has come! We didn't that many participants for the challenge, but we'll just keep trying month after month either people will want to try or I'll give up on the challenge.

Remember, you will pick 5 books from your matches shelf. You will then create a new post, tag your match listing your 5 chosen books along with the #trappedonanisland.

After you have received your 5 titles, it's up to you what you read but you must read at least 1.

TheAromaofBooks I'm up to 131 and still have some to add. I pretty much am adding all the unread books in my house that are fiction, not stupidly long, and not part of a series, so they are all over the place as far as genre, age, and even audience go haha I've kind of been meaning to make this list anyway, so this is a fun reason to pull it together!! 8mo

So I'm thinking of a new challenge. Lately I've noticed I've been reading a lot of newer releases and have been neglectful of some of the TBR books that have been on my list for years. I never seem to pick these books myself, so why not have someone else pick them for me? So here's how I'm thinking the challenge would work.

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island". ⬇️

aperfectmjk - You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. The more books on your shelf the better.
- Each month at the start of the month (starting in July) you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf. ⬇️
9mo
aperfectmjk - You will create a post that showcases the 5 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.
- You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading. ⬇️

@Sarah83 also added things for the kids. They love Donald Duck comic books and Sarah just added to the collection. They'll be pleased, they've read up all their Christmas comic books already.

Also, a photography book with puppies, B.Cavallaro's A Study in Charlotte (German edition), sweets (Leseratten = reading rats).

Not sure I'll share the bookmark, the chocolate bear, notebook and tagged book. (Gollum voice: my preciousssz!)

rockpools What a wonderful parcel! 🌞 4y
Sarah83 The bookmark and the sweets are for you. 😊 4y
julesG @Sarah83 I'll keep the bookmark, but will probably share the licorice and marshmallows. Not that I don't like them, it's just so much more fun to share them with the kids. I suppose we'll have a reading party on Saturday. 4y

Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
Pickpick

The 2nd volume of Mickey Mouse strips from Fantagraphics, covering 1932-33. They're absolutely gorgeous, and Gottfredson is a master of building up momentum, both with danger and with humor. The commentary handwaves the 1930s racism more than I'm comfortable with, though.
