Here's Sigvald again, trying to be positive:

Yes, it can be correct, if you spell "too high" correctly. 8-)

That may be the case. And if that is the case, it explains why the demand price for "Somewhere in Nowhere" was too high for Egmont.

There is no connection at all. I have the impression that you have no idea what Don's strike was about. (BTW, there's no need to go further into this matter. It's not relevant here anyway.)

Obviously? Can you explain how I should read this sentence, while also keeping in mind what you wrote: "I have been too critical towards too many artist/creators"?

And what about Barks? Why do you only mention "Lustig/Block" as people-to-be-paid for that story?
