I remember that Gary Leach wrote on this list, that they've prepared the 
contents for the next half year or so, but that was a couple of months 
ago, I think. I've seen the cover for both US 328 (Forget It!) and US 
329, and US 329 is not a Rosa cover, so I strongly presume this issue 
won't have any long Rosa stories in it, unless they don't know of the 
cover for the story! (Crown of the Crusader Kings)

Another thing, if I am not mistaking Gary said that they might consider 
reprinting the Lo$ (albums), I sure hope they would print them with 
extra chapters and the commentaries Don wrote for them. Those comments 
always add a little dimension to the story! :-)

Hopefully the previews for the next couple of issues will be availble on 
the web!

Btw, Gemstone (Gary), is there any chance you would consider using the 
one-parter versions instead of using the three-part versions, when it 
comes to Don Rosa's stories ?

I'm a Dane, and I noticed it too :-) I just had a little laugh about it, 
but sure would have to have seen the cover used instead!
