I have this written down *somewhere*, but I can't seem to find it:
Didn't Gladstone convert an old Gottfredson adventure into comic book
format, during the days of their "Mickey Mouse" comic book, which then
proceeded to never see print?

If it's already been re-formatted, the production costs for running
this story should be minimal - does anyone remember what it is or know
whether Gladstone has returned it to their schedule?
