Hall of Fame 2006 calendar?

I saw mention here about "Don Rosa calendar",
with no definite information? Is there a 2006 DR
calendar published in Finland? In an Oslo bookstore
I saw however a _Hall of Fame_ 2006 calendar.

It looked perhaps nice enough, with contributions
for the different months by the artists that have
had books in Egmont's Norway-Sweden-Denmark-
Germany Hall of Fame series -- without looking
carefully I take it the artists are Barks, Rosa, Romano
Scarpa, Vicar, Marko Rota, Paul Murry, Daan Jippes,
and possibly Branca? I suppose the calendar is
being put out for sale in the Scandinavian Egmont
countries. In Germany too, perhaps?

Anyway, I hesitated in buying one, since I've invented
(& patented with the US Bureau of Patents) a genius way
of arresting time, stopping calendar time at 2003 for ever.
I simply recirculate the 2003 Don Rosa calendar year
after year in my kitchen, applying & moving around yellow
post-its (one post-it, two post-its?) with mandag tirsdag
osndag [sic!, keeping Don Rosa's surprising Norwegian
spelling] torsdag fredag lørdag søndag. And the 2003
calendar is nicer than the HoF calendar, imVho -- the
different styles make it too heterogeneous, too little
"one good reconisable style", and that hurt my prospective
buyer's eyes just enough to go back to 2003, once again.
