In Germany MM is published by Ehapa which belongs to Egmont. It is right that
they use mainly Egmont stories but for Murry stories they use them frequently.
I don't know the reason but I'm sure that it isn't because of there are no
MM stories by Egmont. There are so many Egmont stories which aren't published
in Germany yet. (I think that these have minor quality. Why else aren't they

The German MM page number was until the eighties 42 and is nowadays about 46-54.
