Yes! This is great news to me even though I have some of the B&W library sets. I also like the fact that they're starting in the middle like DH did with Little Lulu. Anything that promotes the health of this line.

Disney now owns Marvel. Why aren't they tapping Marvel's resources to get the Bark's Duck stuff into print instead of allowing Fantagraphics to do it?

To tie up that story, I contacted Disney and it took a couple of years to agree to a publishing contract. At first they told me they were going to publish it themselves, and I tried to talk them out of that without initial success. And then literally like a year later they called me back and said, “we decided not to publish it ourselves and that you’d be the right people to do it.

The color repros that ran with the piece, by the way, are not our color (but grabbed off the web, I think). We have about 50 pages colored now —by the terrific cartoonist-in-his-own-right Rich Tommaso— but Disney hasn’t officially approved them yet, so we couldn’t release them.

I do salute Fantagraphics for bringing this out at an attractive price point (largely since, like Prince Valiant, all the high-end repro work has been already done for the European market).
I wonder why Fanta is recoloring these AGAIN? Most people thought that Egmont nailed the coloring a few years ago.

In the interview, Gary Groth says "...We’re going to go with flat colors, but they’re going to be somewhat muted. What we’re trying to do is to reproduce as best we can not only the color scheme, but the chromatic intensity of the colors, so they’re not going to be bright and garish."
