DON: I couldn't get any more-recent French issues of PICSOU
because, as far as I can tell, comic shops do not sell recent Disney
back-issues. Because of the very childish translations, the stories
simply do not appeal to older folks (although they are immensely
popular with kids), and so comic shops do not carry them. It REALLY
hurts to hear an Asterix fan point out Donald Duck, who in English is
every bit as good, as something completely subpar.
Anyway, what I'm getting to is that to get back issues, you
have to go to used-magazine shops, where there is no attempt to keep
a good selection of back-issues in stock. They just get what people
sell, used. And, I presume, post-1990 issues are mostly still in the
grubby paws of the tots who originally bought them.
But I'll see what I can do....
PER: Seemed fishy to have a "P. S." put on the list without my
original letter. The letter that it originally followed discussed my
work on DDA 31 ("A Car-gone Conclusion," for which I was not credited
in the comic) and what Disney censored therein. Sadly, I don't have
another copy of that letter. Should I write it again?
MARK: Wherefore art thou, Mark? What's become of ya?
