Now that you mention it: I have seen your name quite a lot in Disney
Comics letter columns. In one of your letters you mention a German artist
re-inking Barks's "King Scrooge the first" for Gladstone. The artist must
be Ulrich Schroeder. Disney replied that the reinked story was sent back to
the artist, so that he could make some minor changes. The artist then
destroyed the work because he was not satisfied with it!
Are we supposed to *believe* that??

Agreed. The story's not that great, but the artwork is!

That one is very good, too. It's the one about Vikings. I hope you Americans
will get to see them someday.
