Those detective comics were good, but Mickey's personality was still too clean-cut for me. Donald and Scrooge are more morally ambigious (especially the final parts of The Life & Times of SMD paints Scrooge's morals as rather debatable).
On that note, I remember reading a bunch of Mickey and various Duck comics in the library back in the '90s, and I would love to read them again. Are they any other bound collections out there besides "Life and Times"? Hopefully, in English? :lol
