I remember that Gary Leach wrote on this list, that they've prepared the
contents for the next half year or so, but that was a couple of months
ago, I think. I've seen the cover for both US 328 (Forget It!) and US
329, and US 329 is not a Rosa cover, so I strongly presume this issue
won't have any long Rosa stories in it, unless they don't know of the
cover for the story! (Crown of the Crusader Kings)
Another thing, if I am not mistaking Gary said that they might consider
reprinting the Lo$ (albums), I sure hope they would print them with
extra chapters and the commentaries Don wrote for them. Those comments
always add a little dimension to the story! :-)
Hopefully the previews for the next couple of issues will be availble on
Btw, Gemstone (Gary), is there any chance you would consider using the
one-parter versions instead of using the three-part versions, when it
comes to Don Rosa's stories ?

I'm a Dane, and I noticed it too :-) I just had a little laugh about it,
but sure would have to have seen the cover used instead!
Also, Gary emailed to me here at the DCML that they were working on a Mickey
Mouse Adventures digest-sized comic along the lines of DDA for the summer. And
if the one shot MMA is successful(buy as many copies as you can people!!! :)
) then it would become a bimonthly series like DDA, alternating months with
DDA(i.e. DDA in July, MMA in August, repeat, etc.)
