The following page is scanned from the November 1969 issue of Gold Key’s Walt Disney Mickey Mouse comic book. This particular issue featured Goofy as well so the cover read “Walt Disney Mickey Mouse and Goofy; other issues were titled Walt Disney Mickey Mouse and Pluto whenever Mickey’s faithful dog was included.
In 1969, the title was published four times a year so the next issue didn’t come out until February 1970. Gold Key Comics Club News was a one-page “advertisement” in which the publisher promoted its various comic books. Note that the comics guide is for the month of September. Although the issue has a cover date of November it was actually on newsstands months earlier, conceivably in August.

Note also how many television tie-in comics are listed. Gold Key published comics based on Star Trek, The Lone Ranger, The Twilight Zone, the animated Fantastic Voyage and Thriller (Boris Karloff Tales of Mystery was originally called Thriller but was retitled after the show was canceled).
Gold Key’s comic book adaptation of ABC’s Fantastic Voyage, the Saturday morning cartoon spin-off of the 1966 film that ran from 1968 to 1969, only lasted two issue. The second is advertised here.
