Donald Duck is an American comic book magazine starring the Disney character Donald Duck and published by various publishers since 1952.

Publication history[edit]

The first issue was released in November 1952, but the numeration started with #26 because the previous Four Color issues titled "Donald Duck", released between October 1942 (Four Color #9) and September 1952 (Four Color #422), were retroactively treated as part of the series: the numbering was the result of a mistake, as Four Color #422 was actually the 28th Four Color issue titled "Donald Duck". From 2003 to 2011, the comic was renamed Donald Duck and Friends. When IDW took over publishing the title in May 2015 they restarted from #1, but retained the 'legacy' numbering as a secondary number (the first issue is also issue #368).
