What about everyone else?  According to the letter columns, there are people reading these new books that have never read a Disney comic book before.  Should they be deprived of reading this story because long-time fans have several copies of it?  In my area, at least, back issues of Disney books are tough to find and this may be the only chance for them to see this story.

Gary Leach has spoken on this subject before.  Gemstone does not have a license to reprint newspaper strips yet.
