    The published an article and a picture (the text under the picture: The
duck artist Don Rosa in the middle of his Donald Duck collection) of you in
Aku Ankka:

    The wish of many of the readers of Aku Ankka is fulfilled when their
favourite artist Don Rosa pays Finland a visit to meet his fans. In the first
half of November, on week 45 to be exact, Don Rosa visits in several book
stores to sign the new Finnish Rosa book /Guardians of the Lost Library and
Other Bests of Don Rosa/.
    In Helsinki Don Rosa visits Akateeminen and Suomalainen book stores and
The Good Fellows comics shop and in Tampere at least in Kukunor comics store.
Do follow the adds in newspapers to be informed of the more exact dates and
times. You can get more info about the autograph-giving event at Good Fellows
on from Nov. 6th in the numbers (90)6949891 and (90)6949864.
    In addition The Good Fellows will set up an exhibition of Don Rosa original
art-work in its gallery, which will open for four days at Friday the 10th.
The exhibition is open at Friday 17-20, Saturday 9-16, Sunday 9-16 and
Monday 10-18. Don Rosa will visit there on Saturday and Sunday mornings to
be chatted with by the audience, but he won't be signing his art then.
    The whole exciting Rosa week gets to its top in the comics festival in
the Old Students' House in Helsinki where Rosa is the guest of honour. The
festival set up by the Suomen sarjakuvaseura (Comics Society of Finland)
are also the first event of the celebrations for the comics anniversary.
Comic-book is 100 years old in 1996.
    The issue 45 of Aku Ankka will be a Don Rosa special, where a whole
long duck adventure story Lost Charts of Columbus will be published,
totally new Don Rosa that is. In the issue there will also be a cover drawn
by Don Rosa for this specific adventure. Try to stay calm!

    Now to my questions:
    DON ROSA ORIGINAL ART-WORK?!!-o Where did they get this if even you can't
have it? Did they purchase it directly from Gladstone/Egmont or what?
    How is it possible that I've seen three pictures of you and in each one of
them you look exactly different?
    I don't know if the issue 45 is in print yet, but if not, maybe it might be
a good place to publish your e-mail address OR fully detailed information of
this list? Whaddaysay, Don/Per? (I do have to ask the editors first, of course)
    And I have a huge packet of Aku Ankka issues here and the piggy bank, but
when can I give them to you? In the festival at Saturday (when/where) or at
Sunday morning at the gallery?
    Do you have a clue of the time the GotLLaOBoDR will be published?
    How long is LCoC? Does this proof that they could also publish the Avatar
