Dear Disney-Comics (List & Digest),

Harry (to Don [I think?]):

        HEY, NO FAIR!!  I want one to!  (I'm just kidding... but I
would still like YOU to send me one as well [if you don't mind] :)

Me (to Harry):

        Because I think it would be interesting to own copies of Don's
Egmont/Gutenberghus stories (which have appeared across Europe &
Asia) =D

        Okay, take your time (I am NOT in any sort of hurry!)

        All right, First off (Harry) what's a D-code (does the D
signify that it's Dutch)??  How different is the Dutch edition, in
contrast to the U.S. version?  

I guess that about covers it...
