Hi all,

if anyone here knows how to read Norwegian, and is interested in reading a  
Christmas story for free (legal, even), here's your chance, but it's only  
good for a few days, so hurry.

Since 2005, Norwegians Tormod Løkling (former DD editor) and Arild Midthun  
(Disney artist) have drawn a series of 24 Christmas-themed strips a year.  
These are distributed through Bulls so that any newspaper interested can  
print the story December 1st-24th. A Christmas calendar in comics!

Last year, I decided to buy the rights to print these strips on my  
homepage. It wasn't exactly a smashing success (for several reasons, e.g.  
one of Norway's biggest newspapers decided to start in advance and print  
the December 1st strip November 28th, so the story wasn't really that  
interesting when I published them on schedule 2-3 days later), but: I  
still had a license to publish Disney comics on my web site, so of course  
I did so.

That licence lasted a year, so now it's about to expire -- but all the  
strips are still available online for two more days, if anyone's  

You find them all here:
