Enough Un-Anniversaries, July 28th is actually the day Disney’s Alice in Wonderland was released in 1951. To celebrate properly, we’ll re-post from reigning expert Matt Crandall’s excellent Disney Alice blog, vintagedisneyalice.blogspot.com, where he posted today images of a Disney comic book:
Chapter 2 appears in the issue dated July 28th, 1951, the date of the US premiere and the official anniversary of the film’s release.
Second of the colouring competitions, this time featuring my favorite character, the Caterpillar!
Chapter 2 finds Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole and chasing the White Rabbit through a small door. Guess we’ll meet the doorknob next time.
Again in this issue, beautiful painting not normally found in comic pages. Wonder what happened to all this art?
