My question about Tarzan was answered many times. Thanks:-)

> yes in the USA.
>   Dark Horse put out a 2 issue series.
> Not sure if Disney Adventures did one or not...
I see. well, maybe I should go for that version, as i can read
> > I guess you other scandinavians haven't seen it either?
> Huh? Oh, wha? Scandinavians? Ups, sorry about that.
No, don't be sorry, that was actually meant the other way. 
I didn't expect the scandinavians to answer, cause our weeklies 
are almost the same, apart from titles and some stories that we 
decide ourselves.

Isn't this crossing the line a bit? If the really did that it would
stop any other artists from those being in the mag... I'm a fan 
of both, but I like to read other artists too... 
already the prize in american currency of the mag is "Duckburg: 
10 cents as usual" :-)

Did they not keep that promise or what? 
well already the list of the stories, in that Picsou-mag with the
Gladstone-pin-up was incomplete...

What is that about?
and would one have to write something in the subject line?

You're right there... but then they could have published it along-side
all the other books, as a one-shot.

And this tradition even one year caused that there were two extras in
december. one with Lion King and a reprint of another christmas parade.

coverless, yes... the first page used as a cover... pretty annoying for
us inducksers...

I see. well, you know what I will want to see when we next meet:-)
> Here in Finland the Tarzan story was published in three parts in the
middle of the Aku Ankka weekly. Well I liked it !!
Argh... this is starting to sound that we're the only ones left out...
and I suppose all you others have Tarzan-merchandise along side that
serial? 3 parts? did they make those annoying summary panels then??

Isn't that true?

Sounds nice, as far as I can tell...
