Extended news flash

June 20, 2003

Shortly Gemstone will start publishing stories by Don Rosa, previously unpublished in their original language. When it comes to the covers Don Rosa says: "...all the covers are reprints. So far I have done nothing new for Gemstone." The first stories to see print in the US will be:

June 18th:
Uncle Scrooge #319 with D 98202 - "US: The Dutchman’s Secret" (24 pages) + cover by Don Rosa.

Walt Disney's Comics & Stories #635 with part 1 of D 2000-002 - "DD: The Three Caballeros Ride Again" (9 pages) + cover by Don Rosa. Part 2 (10 pages) and part 3 (9 pages) will follow in WDC&S #366 (August) and WDC&S #367 (September).

Uncle Scrooge #321 with F PM 00201 - "US: Attaaaaaack!" (12 pages) + cover by Don Rosa.

These are monthly prestige titles, with $6.95 cover prices - basically continuing on from Gladstone's last books, however the G logo now means Gemstone instead of Gladstone.
