Walt Disney Giant and its companion title Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse were the first comic books that Gladstone made to self covered comic books since Gladstone's first run. Unfortunately due to the prestige format of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories Walt Disney Giant and Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse had to be cancelled after the 7th issues.

There has been some speculation That Walt Disney Giant was cancelled due to budget cuts although some people think that it got cancelled because Walt Disney's Comics and Stories converted to Prestige Format.[citation needed]

Walt Disney Giant was later replaced by Walt Disney's Comics and Stories Penny Pincher
