Cover displays the Mickey Mouse Club logo and symbol.
Mickey addresses the readers in the opening splash panel, acting as a host. The story resumes conventionally after that.
At one point, Mickey is explicitly presumed dead by his commanding officer.
Mickey's use of the word "Ug!" (page 9, panel 5) and a greater level of humor than in a typical Carl Fallberg Mickey Mouse adventure story point to Bob Ogle as having written this story.
Originally produced for the Disney Studio Overseas Comic Book Program.
The lettering here is by Western's Rome Siemon and not Paul Murry, as previously credited. If Murry drew this story for the Disney Studio Overseas Comic Book Program, as noted above, he would have left the balloons blank so that an editor could fill in a very basic gist of what the balloons should communicate in the published language.
