Disney Comics was a publishing company, owned by The Walt Disney Company, that operated from 1990-1993. The company was created so that The Walt Disney Company would not have to rely on other publishing companies to continue publication of their comic book series, which began in 1940. Early in the history of the series, the comic books primarily contained reprints of Disney comic strips, but by the mid 1940s, original stories and serials were included in the books. In addition to Disney Comics, the comic book series has been published by six other companies over the years.
