Why? What's more (or less!) 'real' about the Quack Pack HD&L than about the
Barks, HD&L, the Ströbl HD&L, the Scarpa HD&L....? I got the feeling they
sometimes are more different than Quack Pack. A little thread about HD&L's
age has been up shortly, Quack Pack is only another story making them quite
a lot older. Okay, they're after the girls they once despised; is this what you
think terrible? Or maybe you're disliking their not being quite alike anymore
(possibly _not_ identical triples, after all.... ;-)? Please tell me; if not
exactly top of the bill, I found Quack Pack still interesting, and I'm just 
a bit
embarrassed about a Duck lover condemning it so hard.

confronted with their deeply hidden desires (well, not that very deep for 
I guess.... <g>), and at times, I like taking a look in the psychological
