The forerunner of Walt Disney's Comics & Stories was Mickey Mouse Magazine published between 1935-40. Besides non-comics material, it largely reprinted US newspaper daily and Sunday comics. Today, this is a relatively rare publication and is yet sparsely indexed. Via ebay, it has come to my notice that 1936's 'Silly Symphony' Sunday comics serial which featured Big Bad Wolf's first appearance in the comics medium had been reprinted in Mickey Mouse Magazine in 1937, albeit in a reformatted manner to fit standart magazine page format.

Note that, in a series of posts in previous months in this blog, I had provided a detailed overview of this Silly Symphony continuity, with extensive scans from its reprint in Britain's Mickey Mouse Weekly which had ran it in a form identical to its original format.

Admittedly, I think that the Wolf on the MM Mag Halloween cover is actually one of the Three Little Wolves.
Overstreet's price guide has long identified it as BBW, but I believe they're in error.

yes, it definitely is one of the 3LW
