In re Topi's question concerning Gladstone color albums:
There are all the Uncle Scrooge Barks One-pagers in 2 volumes.
This set was published lat year.
Recently, the last volume of 6 Gyro Gearloose albums was put out
about 2 months ago.
The 10-pagers from WDC&S are being collected. Volume 22 (?) of 54 was
put out last month.
They have announced a complete $crooge set and a set for other
Donald stories. Overall, the intent is clearly to publish the Barks opus.
Back in the late 70s, a Barks fan who had a complete
set (worth over $8000 BACK THEN!) decided not to keep adding
wear to his comics whenever he wanted to re-read or consult them,
so he painstakingly over the next three years color xeroxed the
whole set in chronological order for a reference copy. A Black&White
regular xerox set was made for me along with the color. I paid
10cents/page for every page CB ever did (known up to that time)
including Barney Bear, FireStone giveaways, censored Glittering
Goldie, the whole nine yards.
Now I have to pay for it all over again at more than 10cents/page,
but at least it's in color and on double-sided pages! Still, it
does seem wierd to be re-collecting this stuff. Maybe I should just
color in the xeroxes myself!
