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.
