Interstellar Detectives is a Disney Fan Webcomic. It's often mistaken as an Epic Mickey fan webcomic simply because a few characters from the game star in the comic. It made its debut on January 14, 2011, on ComicFury (see [1] here) and still runs. Artwork, Character Designs, and Sketch versions of pages can be seen on the creator's DeviantArt account [2]

The story is about Horace Horsecollar and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit responding to a summons notice that came from a disc, this however results in a confrontation with a space bounty hunter, Clarabelle Cow getting involved and Horace injured. Oswald makes his own discovery that his ex-girlfriend Fanny Cottontail is an intergalactic officer and Horace is a galactic vigilante and detective. This leaves Fanny no choice but to register Clarabelle and Oswald as investigators and unlock Horace's memories of his detective work.
