I've never heard of this. I assume it's Egmonts answer to
Another Rainbow's The Carl Barks' Library.

Interesting, I didn't realize that Dick Moores did newspaper work for
Disney. I also never realized that Jose Carioca was popular enough in
the US to have his own Sunday strip. Were these published in the US or
were they done for foreign markets? The newspaper work must have been
contagious because when Dick Moores left Disney, he created his own comic
strip called 'Gasoline Alley'.
>Ain't it about time we got a creator hoozoo on ftp too?
The lack of one is my fault. I volunteered to write an FAQ including
a section on the creators. Shortly after I volunteered, my comic book
writing finally took off and I never had the time to complete this task.
I'd be happy to contribute to such a task, but there is now way I'll
have the time to write one myself.
