He’s here at last—Mickey’s 25th-century time-traveler pal, Eega Beeva! With his wicked wit, wild future-world customs, and hold-anything “magic pocket,” Eega is a wild card like Mickey’s never met. But Mickey and Eega will both have to get wild to save Mouseton from the Rhyming Man... a poetic master spy with an arsenal of chemical weapons! Artist Floyd Gottfredson teamed up with classic Disney writer Bill Walsh to create Eega Beeva and the Rhyming Man—and challenge daring, discombobulated Mickey with them both! With friends like Eega, after all, Mickey barely needs enemies. When the “Man of Tomorrow” isn’t eating pigeon feathers or adopting a college-educated ape, he’s giving a mental complex to Goofy—who refuses to believe that time-travelers exist! Restored from Disney’s original proof sheets, Rise of the Rhyming Man also includes more than 20 pages of futuristic extras! You’ll enjoy rare behind-the-scenes art, vintage publicity material, and fascinating commentary by hi-tech Disney historians! 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. Now it’s time to rediscover the wild, unforgettable personality behind the icon: Floyd Gottfredson’s Mickey Mouse.
