I'm sorry, but I have to hesitate DON with this:

> Harry replied with Don Rosa quote: 
>>> As for me ever doing a Mickey Mouse story, there's no chance of that.
>>> There's no reason for me to. I am totally apathetic toward the character
>>> as being simply a cute configuration of lines. There's no personality.
>>> Sure, in the hands of another Barks, Mickey would become a WONDERFUL

       That's exactly what I mean. Let's just replace 'another Barks'
       with something else, like:

           Sure, in the hands of Don Rosa (ahem!), Mickey would become
           a wonderful character. 8-)
             I think if anybody it's you who can put personality in 
           a comic book character.
>>> I'll be glad to do a Mickey Mouse story after someone else writes and 
>>> draws classic Mickey comics for 25 years and gets me interested in 
>>> those cute ink lines. As of right now... feh.  

       Somebody's got to be the first. Why not you. :)
       I'm not trying to force you or anything...
