About "Return to Xanadu"
Disney decided to split this story in two parts, as they always wanted to
have a couple of shorter stories and one-pagers in each issue, and so there
wasn't at all room for a 30 page story. The first page of what Disney used
as the second part (in U$ 262) was a brand new page by Don, of which 2
pannels and most of the background of the splash pannel were directly
xeroxed from earlier pannels in the story. It seems Disney didn't like the
format of the story, either, and so they stretched out each page over the
desired format. Yuk! Just lookit pannels 1 and 2 on page 2!!
Disney also felt like stretching out the story code to KJU023-1/d90314.
Disney also doubled the amount of covers for this exclusive publication. The
cover for the "first part", being a version of Don's own except with the
Ducks drawn as seen from the front, was made by Jim Mitchell and Jukka
