It has finally appeared in the German weekly this week. The title is
"Die doppelte Hexe" - possibly a reference to "Das doppelte Lottchen",
a very popular children's film about twins. Though if this was intended,
"Die doppelte Gundel" would seem more fitting. The incantation is:
Die Krone aller Hexerei, das ist der Spruch... [Bizzel!] ...aus
eins mach zwei!
Ever since I read this in the Danish issue, I've been trying to remember
where I've seen the idea with the virus - it's some Disney film with
a battle between Mim and Merlin.
Also in this issue, the second part of D93063 - the hotel-fishing
story. Maybe there should be a ban at Egmont on new Mickey and
Goofy stories in which M&G are tied up, but manage to untie them-
selves just in time to prevent the villains from doing their dirty
stuff/getting away. I remember finding this hackneyed when I was
10. There must be dozens and dozens of stories with this in.
