So you will keep the lists up-to-date?

(I recommended this list to Andrew Davies, Australia. I he a member?)

Don't forget to correct my 'typing error' in the Scandinavian column of the
story 'Return to Plain Awful'...

I think some of the lists are still 'under construction'. You should make that
clear to the newcomers. (Or is Rich's list complete now?)

Maybe you could also add some Frequently Asked facts about Don Rosa, why he
went to Gutenberghus etc. It was on this list once, but also several times
on rec.arts.comics or rec.arts.disney.

Not much more. I think there was a comic called Sebastian, but I'm not sure.
