Publication history[edit]

Gladstone I: 1987–1990 and Gladstone II: 1993–1997[edit]

Gladstone Publishing published 48 issues. The first 20 were published from 1987 to 1990 (#1-#20), and then the last 28 were published from 1993 to 1997 (#21-#48), whereas Gladstone II continued the numbering of Gladstone I, ignoring the intermediate numbering of Disney Comics. The series contained original material alongside reprints from older Donald Duck strips from the 1930s and 1940s, as well as more modern material from the King syndicated strip from the 1980s.

Disney Comics: 1990–1993[edit]

Disney Comics published the title from 1990 to 1993, this one being the only one of the "new" Disney comic books to survive the company's comic implosion in 1991. They started a new numbering, issues #1-38.

Gemstone: 2003–2006[edit]

Gemstone Publishing published its own series of Donald Duck Adventures, this one as a digest size graphic novel alongside Mickey Mouse Adventures. These 128-page comics were sized 5" × 7½", and started a new numbering yet again, #1-#21. This Donald Duck Adventures was canceled in December 2006.
