As you can read at this site: http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=97547

Dark Horse comics is going to be releasing a nearly 500 page B/W collection of Casper the Ghost stories in June.  I would imagine if Dark Horse thinks there is an audience for Casper stories in such a format, that Gemstone should be able to publish a similar type of title with Duck or Mouse stories.

I have a question for Gary.  At first you compared a possible B/W Gemstone title to "Shonen Jump".  Later you seemed to compare it more to a Showcase/Essentials type title.  I think there are two big differences to the two.  One, Shonen Jump comes out on a regular basis like a periodical.  Showcase/Essentials do not come out on a monthly or regular basis.  Two, Shonen Jump costs about 5 or 6 dollars each, whereas Showcase/Essentials cost more like between $15.00 and $20.00.  I would be curious whether Shonen Jump or Showcase/Essentials is the type of B/W title Gemstone is considering?  Of course from what has been written on the list, Gemstone may be reconsidering having such a B/W title at all.

Of course I can't post to the ML without mentioning a 3rd monthly prestige format title! :)  Just wondering if anyone at Gemstone is talking or discussing this, or if it is not even on Gemstone's "radar" at this time?  If anyone at Gemstone has *any* info about this, I and many other list members would love to hear about it.
