(Gemstone's Archival Editor, David Gerstein, warned on the Disney Comics Forum that, while these are indeed plans and projects in the making, anything can happen; the warning goes for any such project, more specifically this and the Gottfredson and Rosa collections.)

"I can't give many details about these projects yet, other than to confirm that for right now they're in the works. Plans have been known to change, though. Lars is correct: Amazon's listings often reflect projects (from all publishers) that may not ultimately come out as originally expected.
But at least you can see what we presently *want* to do.

The cover pictures at this point, by the way, are just quick "Americanizations" of similar volumes already published by Egmont. Our final editions may look very different (and may not be identical to Egmont's equivalents inside, either)."

"[...] things are pretty durn tentative. Our distribution arm asks us to submit our information for Amazon—and other online retailers—nearly a year in advance. So these early plans are often subject to change."

(2008-03-14 22:56)

"As for our publishing schedule, and the use of Egmont's material, color, etc., all decisions are still up in the air. Sorry not to have more information yet."

(Barry Branvold copied on the DCML the answer Gemstone Editor-in-Chief Leonard (John) Clark made him)

"It's a reprint of the first Don Rosa Hall of Fame book from Denmark.
Unless something goes wrong, we plan to publish it."

May that Rosa own a book! What is that good for. She has written all the bad stories and has not listened to Barks.
