"Mickey Mysterier" (Mickey Mysteries)

I'm still working on this document. About 30 stories aren't on the story list yet, and I plan to write a bit more about the general concept in the stories.

The links to character descriptions points to Per Starbäck's Disney Comics Archive.

"Mickey Mysterier" is published by the Danish Disney publisher Serieforlaget. The series started in january 1994, when it substituted the at least seven year old series "Mickey Mouse". The old series contained a lot of different sorts of stories, where as the "Mysteries" series only contains Mickey Mouse detective stories. The series was terminated as a publication by the end of 1995, but two stories in the same style have been spotted in issues of "Onkel Joakim" since then, so I've decided to include all stories of the "Mysteries" style in this document.

Each issue is 96 pages of 2 by 3 panels, and the frequency was one every four weeks.

The characters in the "Mysteries" stories are:

Mickey Mouse [MM]
Title character.
Hat and trench-coat private detective with an office in a really bad part of town.
The building where Mickey has his office (it kind of reminds me of V. I. Warshawski's office building).
Minnie Mouse [Mi]
Mickey's girlfriend.
Talkshow host on Channel 13.
In about half of the stories.
Chief O'Hara [CO]
The police chief in Duckburg (Yes, Mickey & Co. does also live in "Andeby" according to Danish tradition.)
Chief O'Hara seems always to be have something difficult enough to hand over to Mickey.
"Snus" [Sn]
Chief O'Hara's head detective.
M. O'Lean ("Mulde Varpsen") [MO]
Librarian (mole).
M. O'Lean works at the city library, and is an invaluable help for Mickey in his work.

"muldvarp" = "mole"

Phantom Blot [PB]
Mickey's evil arch enemy.
Phantom Blot is usually just acting behind the scenes, and won't show up until at the end of a story.
Claire Voyant [CV], Miss Mabbel [Ma], Jack Hamper [JH] and Hericles Poogeaux [HP].
A group of detectives Mickey is a member of.
"Dante Inferno" [DI]
(Italian?) film maker.
