Some extracts of David's last 4 mails:

Yes, I mixed that one up with some other 'Arabian' story by Murry. I think
in English it would be called something like 'Ali Scrooge and the 40

So it must be VERY good if even you, "bored by Murry", call it 'pretty
good'! 8-)

I hope mr. Branca knows how to draw Clerkly.

Can you give us the codes of those stories? I'm very curious about the
European (especially Dutch 8-) stories that will be reprinted, and I'm
curious which stories YOU picked.

Before you were on the list, we (at least I) thought there were only 4
Disney albums. And since then, all I know about them is what YOU mailed
on the list. Maybe you can help updating our Disney-comics index?


Ceterum censeo Murryem plus publicandum esse.
