You may not have noticed this (as an American) but in certain cases
Egmont's stories and others have been scanned at such a low quality that
the original, which might date back some 20+ years, looks much better

Effectively we see new fancy colouring combined with the ability to
count the pixels.
So much for the "new" digital world.
