> UNCLE SCROOGE #327 This issue includes Carl Barks' classic "Chugwagon
> Derby," a re-telling of his own earlier "The Hard Loser," along with
> a reprinting of Don Rosa's classic "Curse of Nostrildamus," from his
> Gladstone years. [...] Prestige Format. SC, 7x10, 64pg, FC $6.95
According to COA, these stories have both been reprinted in 1997, in
At that time, I grabbed the chance to have Rosa's "Curse of Nostrildamus"
in a nice album format. So, I could comfortably read it over and over
again, anytime I wish. And now, only about six years later, an upcoming
prestige comic will contain the whole thing again, in a smaller size...
And why? There is still lots of Rosa material that hasn't been printed
in USA so far. A lot of people have been waiting and wishing for years
to finally see that new Rosa material. Then, why this re-reprint? People
who've never seen it in the USA before, can go to those many auction
sites where the original Gladstone publications are sold. They have had
about five years of time to do that, when there were no Disney comics
in the USA.
The remaining pages of Uncle Scrooge #327 will contain the stories "The
Golden Throne Legend", "Gall in the Family", and a "bonus Gyro Gearloose
story". I'm curious to see these stories. Too bad, the issue isn't just
full of these such new stories. (I mean, these three stories are no
reprints, or are they?) I hope they will get a lot of attention, despite
the Barks and Rosa fillers.
BTW. Does the word "bonus" mean that the issue contains more than 64 pages?
Again, I apologize for being so hot-headed, but I'm afraid that this path
will lead to the situation of *again* having no Disney comics in the USA,
I expected so much of the resurrection of USA Disney comics. I can't
believe that this is what I've been waiting for, all that time.
