The problem with international editions until the 70’s or 80’s (depending on which country you grew up in) is that sometimes the art is modified and other times it’s totally butchered, not to mention the translations (but that’s a problem to this day). We will come back to all of these topics at some point in the future this being Disco Friday and all, but I will leave you with a question … How do you make a regular-sized 20+ page comic from a bunch of strips?

Demon Dancer (Portuguese)
Demon Dancer (Indian)
