Disney comics are still popular in Indonesia but not in some other countries
in Asia AFAIK. Anyway, the Disney popularity here in my country is kinda
dropping down in sales and fandoms. This is based on my observation only but
i know that Disney is losing its popularity in Indonesia, the Japanese manga
comics are the reasons.
Unfortunately, i cannot help you on Korean/ Japanese issues. But in here,
there used to be biweekly bilingual Disney issues which is unfortunately had
been stopped by now. But there are still a "regular" ones here with the
English language printed in. It's called the Very Best of Donald Duck. It is
currently "regularly" printed every 6 months ;-) Only 2 issues have come out
so far and each issue is about 200 pages+ as far as i can remember.
