Or at least it has been, in past years.

The next Barks/Jippes JW story, "Eagle Savers", will be in the weekly of
week #24.
Jippes is in the USA at the moment, and he's not doing any work for the
Dutch editor. But this may change in the future.

Right. Vactaions and such. 8-)
The Dutch weekly aims at children of age 9 or 10.

More Dutch news:

The series DE BESTE VERHALEN VAN DONALD DUCK (all-Barks) is being reprinted
in hard-cover, bound editions by Lekturama. 4 original albums in a bound
edition. In colour.
I haven't seen these albums anywhere yet, but there seem to be 4 of them out

Sounds like a nice Dutch Barks library, even though they literally use the
Beste Verhalen versions, which have some minor flaws now and then.
