Dear fellow subscribers,
Last time in Disney-comics digest #107:

Mark, this is NOT a silly question! I once asked this same question to
Don, a few years ago and he amusing/interesting. He said: "I've never had
anyone ask me that before!"
Torsten [about $crooges accent]:

I *sometimes* "hear" the voices of the character in the stories that I
read. Like: SMAUG "The Great and Terrible" (the Red Dragon, from J.R.R.
Tolkien's _The Hobbit_) "sounds" nothing like $crooge McDuck, in my mind!

I could tell you what Don told me... but, I let him do that himself!..

Yes, he did at that, but don't forget about DuckTales!.. sorry Don!
Mark I like your signature, it pretty funny! I am also glad to see a few
*NEW* names in the the contents of this list/digest keep up the good work
