I got a copy of all the files, so anyone can ask me and I'll mail them.

It is very interesting to know that an American book shop gets copies of
German comics! 
And if some of the issues are sold out because of Rosa stories, that would
indicate that Rosa is VERY POPULAR in Germany/Austria/Switzerland, 
because, as they state themselves, "Micky Maus" is the "LARGEST YOUTH

BTW: some of the German comics are for sale in some places in Holland, too. 
Especially in tourist places, where a lot of Germans come.
I bought "Micky Maus" #30 last week, because there was a new Egmont story by
