    This is not true at least here in Finland. Finnish editors have 
    complete credits for new Egmont stories but they have decided 
    not to print 'em. They say that part of the reason to do that
    is that they don't get the credits for Dutch (and propably
    Italian) stories. And they don't want to treat various artists
