OH, for PETE'S SAKE!!!! HARRY!!! WOULD YOU PLEASE CALL ROEP BACK AND ASK HIM WHAT HE THINKS HE'S DOING!!!!!!! "Buckaroo of the
Badlands" is part THREE of the "Life of $crooge" -- not part 1!!!! It just won't make sense without the first two parts, @#$#^%& it!
Doesn't Roep care about his readers? If he's so concerned about the quality of the stories, WHY IS HE SABOTAGING THEM??? Call him
right away PLEASE and straighten him out -- or get some REASON from him as to WHY he's screwing up my story!!! Don't accept the
reason given by the Swedish publisher, that part 1 is too long at 48 pages. Part 1 is only 15 pages! Part two is 30+ pages -- let
him skip part 2 if he has to!
DAMN -- what a way to start my day with #$%^&$& news like that!!!
Also, my stories have been used in the German comics right along with the other Egmont editions. However, it is true that it's been
quite a while since they last used one since I've been doing this "Life of $crooge" for almost 2 years, and Germany had been saving
it up to be published in a separate all-Rosa title. But I hear that they changed those plans due to some sortuva recession deepening
over there, and just yesterday I received a FAX from the translator who says they will be using the series in the weekly comics
(AND THEY'RE STARTING WITH PART ONE, Y'HEAR THAT ROEP!?).
To David G.: I certainly am flattered as always by your devotion and interest in this "War of the Wendigo" story, but you just
don't seem to hear what I keep explaining to you! They can reprint stories about cannibals or such in the albums because, #1 they can
claim it's an old classic, and more importantly #2 it's very unlikely that any cannibals will read it and write an irate letter.
But look -- do us both a favor. You seem to be in touch somehow with people at Disney. Call them up and ask the guy who made the
decision to ban "War of the Wendigo" WHY he did it! And ask HIM all these questions you're asking us who can't know the answers.
That'll settle it.
Starting with part 3!!! GAAAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
