Donald Magazine is a French weekly comic-book published by Hachette editions.


Every issue of the series is an exact replica of Le Journal de Mickey issue released at the same time, except for the cover devoted to the Donald Duck character and for minor inside changes that does not make sense in the context of the "Donald Magazine" when compared to its "Le Journal de Mickey" contrepart (such pages as summary, subcription orders or allusions to "Mickey Club"). The selling mode remains uncertain as it is sometimes said that it was done only by traveling vendors, however such "door-to-door" sales were generally ended in the eighties.

  • 415 issues were released between 1982 and 1990 (first issue April 30, 1982 / last issue March 28, 1990), with "Mandrake the Magician" featured in 167 issues.
