Wes is toooooo kind. The European stories are all pretty lame compared to
even the most mediocre material produced by the American Disney writers and
artists--including that originally published by Dell and the recent
Gladstone material by Rosa, Van Horn, and Block/Fernandez. Europeans tend to
manufacture padded stories with predictable plots, unsatisfying
characterization, and very little humor. But then, what can you expect?
Disney himself was a uniquely American phenomenon.
