After blathering on like a windbag yesterday, I hardly have a
thing to say -- but I do have a BIT of news, now that I talked with
Anina Bennett (Egmont U. S. editor) last night.
The Mickey Mouse story "Hocus Pocus Hypnosis" was written by
John Lustig (!) and indeed drawn by Noel Van Horn. And the Mickey
two-parter "Fossil Hunters" (with Prof. Dustibones) is written by Pat
McGreal, who has since done a sequel to it which Egmont will cough up
To increase his output, Ferioli has begun a studio like Vicar's
about a year ago, by having several people ink his work. The
dinosaur story was one of the first of these, and the frequency of
Ferioli-drawn stories will thus soon increase, I am led to believe.
My fellow Egmont writers should know that in mid-January, Anina
will no longer be working at Egmont. It was her own decision to
leave, she told me. She was offered an important job at Dark Horse
(much bigger than her old post there) and decided, in the end, to go
for it. So now what? Byron is going to do one of two things: (A)
hire an assistant editor in Denmark so that he can do Anina's portion
of the editing, or (B) hire someone in the States to do what Anina
did. Does anyone know if Bob Foster is interested in getting back
into this business again?
Anina may join us here on the Digest soon. She's told me
several times in the past that she was interested, and confirmed that
again yesterday. She's a Disney fan no matter where she works,
