Robin Hood in Mickey Mouse Weekly

Part of my collection of memorabilia from Walt Disney's movie the Story of Robin Hood are two copies of Mickey Mouse Weekly. This was a weekly tabloid comic that ran from the late 1930s and was first published by Willbank Publications and later Odhams Press in London. It was the first British comic to use the expensive colour photogravure process.

The two copies that I own date from the time of the release of the live-action movie in 1952.  But sadly I am not sure who the artist was that illustrated the strip (it could have been Jessie Marsh). So perhaps my readers might be able to help?

The colourful strip featured below appeared on the back page of Mickey Mouse Weekly weekending July 12th 1952. 

There is a lot more information on the various comic strip versions of Walt Disney's Story of Robin Hood here.

Inducks lists the artist on these strips as "Vann". I have a bunch of these issues with the RH story, I'll see if I can dig them up.

Thanks Matt! I would be interested to know some more about 'Vann'!
