ven though Don Rosa is very popular in Scandinavia there are still a few of his stories which have never been published in this part of the world. There are various explanations for this. First, these are stories which are done for publishers other than Egmont so there is no guaranty that Egmont actually know about these stories. And even if they know about these stories they may not consider them real Don Rosa stories because most of them are not made by Don Rosa only. Another problem is that most of these stories are gag-stories where some (like Rocket Reverie) are very difficult to translate from it's original language. Then there is the "Gyro's Beagletrap" story which actually is a special made gag which won't work 100% anywhere else than in the German Tempo Magazine. Finally there is "The Sharpie of the Culebra Cut" story which is done for the French Picsou Magazine and for some reason it seems to take "forever" to have the Picsou stories published in Scandinavia.
So what is the chance for seeing these stories in Scandinavia in the future? The answer is different from story to story. "The Sharpie of the Culebra Cut" will, as it seems for the moment, be published here in 2002. And since other gag-stories like "The Paper Chase" and "Leaky Luck" already are published in Scandinavia we have a legitimate hope to see similar stories like "Rocket Reverie", "Fiscal Fitness" and "Forget me not" in a not to distant future. On the other side there is "Gyro's Beagletrap" which is a special story done for a special magazine and is thus not likely to be published anywhere else, except perhaps in some special complete Don Rosa stories collection (a "Don Rosa Library" or something like that). The most difficult question here, is that about "Back in Time for Dime!". Since this is an ordinary Disney-story there shouldn't be any problems for the publishers to have it published if they wanted to, but since it most likely, has never been republished anywhere since the spring of 1990 we shouldn't be too hopeful about seeing it in any near future.
Note: Some stories are published in one or two Scandinavian countries only (mainly because Sweden usually doesn't have extra's enclosed with the ordinary Kalle Anka & Co magazine). These stories are not included in this gallery.
Please notice that these stories have ended up here only because they are NOT published in Scandinavia. This is done only to give the huge number of die-hard Don Rosa fans in Scandinavia the possibility to read all of Don Rosa's fantastic stories. As soon as one of these stories is published here that story will be removed from this gallery.
Please also notice that due to respect for all those who unfortunately don't read French and/or German some of these stories are unofficially translated into English from French and German. This is done only because these stories are NOT published in English.
