Tryg: "how did you arrive at there only being 7 readers
hailing from the United States?"
It was really quite a simple calculation, and while I have NEVER CLAIMED TO
BE A GOOD COUNTER, if you will hear me out, I shall explain: Pick any
number, multiply by 2, add 32, divide by three and a half and add four.
Sevens every time! (I believe Barks used a similar formula to calculate the
Beagle Boys' numbers.)
Jorgen: "I just read an Italian story with 177 pages :)"
Holy Cow! -- Printed in ONE magazine?? See, here in the U.S., Gladstone has
shown some mercy to us -- they print stories of any length in a serial format
-- for instance, they've been printing "Monarch of Medioka" in WDCS since
August of '94. This is more my pace. And don't think I didn't pick up on
your European maniacal smugness, "I _just_ read 177 pages." As if to say, "I
_just_ inhaled," or "I _just_ saw a butterfly." Give yourself some credit,
man. 177 pages! Phew. Or whew. You decide.
And thanks to every one who reminded me that Marvel is now shipping the
movie-based comics. See what I mean about only being able to keep track of
three titles a month. ;)
