You mean they found an artist to draw stories like this? Is this the same
artist James was talking about?

About that database: David (old Dell/new Gladstone comics) and Anders Engwall
(Swedish comics from the 70s) have been sending me a lot of information,
lately. I'm still busy incorporating the data in the database. I plan
to issue a new version on ftp before the end of the month (after that,
I won't be able to ftp anymore...)

I saw a long Dutch Scrooge story a few weeks ago, with art that looked very
much like Pat Block's. Did he draw a story for GP in Holland, before he
worked for Gladstone?

I think it was Mikko. He erroneously said it was a Verhagen story.
On some other subject:
I think the most recent Gladstone Donald Duck comic had two errors in the
- They say 'experts' claim that Barks wrote the "Too Many Pets" story
(Four Color 29) himself.
But Michael Barrier quotes Barks from a letter, saying "the story was
written my Merrill something-or-other" (meaning Merill deMaris).
- They say they don't use "Popop" (Fethry) much because all his stories
are Italian, and they can't translate them. Apparently, they don't know
there are quite a lot of English stories with Fethry, even by Strobl.
(Does someone care to tell them?)
