Hardi présente "Donald" was published weekly by the French publisher Opera Mundi in 1947 to 1953. It was printed in a large format of 27,5 x 41.5 cms, having a "Donald Duck" strip on each cover. Even if the magazine contains only 8 pages, it features several classical comics such "Jungle Jim","Flash Gordon", "King of the Mounted Police", "The Lone ranger", "Tim Tyler's Luck", "Rusty Riley"...

The first issue was released on March 23, 1947 and the last (issue # 313) on March 22, 1953. An promotional issue numbered issue# 0 was also released but was not destined to public sale. Unsold copies were later glued together with a new outer cover and sold as "albums". A total of 26 albums were published.

In 1953, Paul Winkler - Opera Mundi director - has to stop the publishing being unable to respect the new regulation, about publications destined to Youth, which was imposing 75 percent of French comics in each magazine.
