Funny. I was just about to ask 2 questions about Rosa. The first about a Super
Snooper followup: in Holland, I saw an ad for next month's issue of 'DD Extra'
with such a story. Since it is a Barks followup, it had to be a Rosa story...
(when will Rosa stop writing followups?)
The story will be published here in october.

The second question was about Scrooge's youth. I sent your message about
Rosa working on Scrooge's youth to my Dutch pen pal Daniel van Eijmeren
months ago. It also mentioned that Rosa let Scrooge and Magica de Spell meet
long before they really met.
Daniel now replied to me that he didn't like the idea, and even doesn't like
Magica at all (well, there are a few good stories with her, but overall, we
could do without her). (Note: this is Daniels opinion, not mine.)
Since your message was a few months old, I wondered if it was still accurate.
Now I know the answer. I can't wait to see the result.
