To the net? If you've sent it to this list it didn't get through.
And I haven't seen anything about it in rec.arts.comics.* or
rec.arts.disney either. In fact I learned about her being dead from
Wilmer River's posting to this list:

I called a Swedish comics dealer and asked him about it. He said that
the latest ish of CBG that he had got *mentioned* the death on the
back cover. I thought that "the tributes" might be something more than
that, and that it is the issue after that one I want. Is it?
Could anyone please give me some issue numbers, both of this CBG and
an earlier one with a feature on Gladstone and interviews with Don
Rosa and William Van Horn. I'd also like the issue number of that
issue of Advance Comics with a Don Rosa interview that Harry
mentioned. There is an old interview with Rosa by Dana Gabbard that
Gabbard told me would be published in The Comics Journal. Has it?
Please anyone tell me when it appears.
And finally a simple question on Gare': How do you proncounce her
name? Like Gary???
