|German and Norwegian edition of "English Edition" #1/2016|
A new series of Disney comics with the undertitle English Edition just started. So far a couple of issues have been published in Germany and the first Norwegian issue will be in sale on Monday (Feb. 29). But other countries might follow ( ..just speculation from my side). In Norway 6 issues are scheduled for 2016.
Pocket books in English have been published in both Germany, Norway and a couple of other European countries for a few years. They mainly contained Egmont 3-tier stories, with a few Italian ones inbetween. The new series however is in regular comic book size and have 4-tier stories.
|The new series compared to the old pocket book series|
The first Norwegian issue had two Carl Barks stories and three "D-coded" Egmont stories previously not published in English. As the comics are targeted at people not having English as their first language, the dialogue might have been simplified a bit. Comparing the dialogue in the Barks stories, we can see that slang have been changed to more proper "school English"
But other than that, not much seems to have been changed.
The comics also have selected glossary at the bottom of the pages.
Here’s the splash panel for "No Trouble At All" by Noel Van Horn, printed for the first time in English (I think):
