Record in France is AFAIK 9 publications, for "The Magic
Hourglass" and "Luck of the North". But, both include a
Belgian Mickey Mouse reprint.
I bet that Italy has the record (if only for amator
publications which I think should be counted). BUT 11 still
is a very high number, which I think has to do with the
tradition in your country. I have the impression that the
Dutch always loved Barks' comics more than any other nordic
country. For instance when Daan Jippes was art director, in
the mid-70s instead of publishing Studio stories (as
Hachette was doing) you published many Barks stories. Also,
10 pages is a "usual" story for the Dutch weekly, while in
Italy, a "normal" story is 30 pages long (or was, until
recently) and - more or less - in many French publications
which were inspired by Italian ones. This may explain while
the most reprinted stories in France are long adventures,
and not ten-pagers as in the Netherlands.
I would be interested to hear about the Italian record BTW,
if somebody has it.
