Not the first comprehensive edition[edit]

Curly Turkey, you had the following text: "The strips have only been sporadically reproduced—mostly in Europe—since first being published, and the Fantagraphics volumes were the first attempt at a comprehensive, definitive collection."

Forgetting to log in (so you only saw my ISP), I changed it to: "The strips have only been sporadically reproduced—mostly in Europe—since first being published, and the Fantagraphics volumes are the first North American attempt at a comprehensive, definitive collection."

And then you changed it back.

I'm not sure what to do here: I'm David Gerstein, co-editor of the Fantagraphics Gottfredson series (...contact me through my website, and I'll verify this!), and I know the Christian Science Monitor (your source) is simply wrong about the past history of complete Gottfredson reprints. Most recently, the following complete Gottfredson reprint appeared in Italy in 2010. I worked on that edition too, and it's even the source for some of Fantagraphics' background articles:

But there were earlier complete reprints produced in Italy in the 1980s and 1990s, and in Germany in the 1980s. Quality varied, but all the strips were there, or else almost all were. How do we tell Wikipedia that the CS Monitor is wrong? (Crossposted to your user talk page; delete there if you like!) Ramapith (talk) 08:50, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
