Have you been at Tronsmo?
I found it in a bookstore in Stavanger on Thursday, November
21st, just in time to by an extra copy a as a gift to my nephew
for his birthay shortly after.
Anyway it *should off course* have been sold everywhere where
such calendars are sold - I have seen a lot of similar comics
calendars showing *non-Disney-shit* around everywhere. There
could be several reasons that this one is more difficult
a) Badly marketing by the publisher.
b) The IMO very high price (NOK 159) may be so high that the
stores won't take it in. Knowing that Don Rosa doesn't get a
dime of this makes this greadyness even worse.
c) There may be to many people prefering simple short gag
comics, and thus prefering calendars showing *non-Disney-shit*
(like Calvin & Hobbes, Ernie, Pondus, Betle Bailey, etc.)
in stead of real quality like Donald Duck comics.
Anyway I wish you good louck in your search!

AFAIK it's sold in: Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
I don't know about Germany.
Please notice that my personal views about what I above
discribes as "*non-Disney-shit*" is not meant as an offence
against anybody or anything. It's only included to to make
my statement clear and concrete.
