I'm getting a bit nostalgic here... Per is starting with digest #1 again
and Melanie, whom I haven't "seen" in 3 years, is still there!

This is one of the funniest stories I read in the past few years.
The Dutch name of the guy is "Telepatoe", and I think the way he is
drawn is very funny. About the violence in the story: similar scenes
(not showing the violence, but people have black eyes afterwards)
are in other Dutch stories.

This "Telepatoe" story was drawn by Mau Heymans. Unfortunately, I don't
know who wrote it. Code: H 91022. Reprinted in Denmark in Anders And
27, 1993 (in other countries about the same time).

I remember one Danish story where 3 aliens come to the earth, and they
look exactly like the nephews. Maybe that's the one, but they could
also have picked a panel with six nephews in that case.

I hope we non-Swedes keep informed if interesting news appears on that

FRANK, about Scarpa:

Also, the new version of the Disney comics Database contains a lot of
information about Danish reprints of Scarpa stories (thanks to Ole
Reichstein). Other European reprints (in pocket books) could be derived
from the Danish info, since the pocket books often contain the same
stories all over Europe.

(Unfortunately, I can't look at your or any WWW page, since I can only
use e-mail.)
