      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?
