Hi Harry and everyone. I must apologise for my innacurate information on
Jose Carioca and Panchito story and cover production in Holland. My
original source of the writer and artist information was INDUCKS. I looked
at all printings of stories and covers containing Jose Carioca first, and
then those with Panchito. I took notes. It appears my last memory (of the
Panchito pages) made me forget that I took notes on the much more numerous
JC entries. Wilma van den Bosch had a slightly higher percentage of the
entries not by number of pages (but by number of "stories") for the mid
1980s to early 1990s in stories in which Panchito appeared. However, these
were only 1-3 pages. Ruud Straatman, indeed, wrote ALL the long JC
stories, and the great bulk of the pages for the 1980s through 1992. Frank
Jonker wrote a great portion of the stories in the 1990s.
The Brasilian covers printed in Holland must be the 2 that you explained
were shown for infomational purposes. There were 5-7 stories listed with B
codes that I interpreted as having been printed in Holland fromentries by
story crossreferencing. Perhaps I made a mistake there. I am traveling
now, and cannot use my friends' internet connection to check this.
Sorry for the misinformation. I will take much more careful notes and
quote sources from now on.
