So it’s come to this... This is why we can’t have nice things.
You mean like gray money bins?
As a metaphor for something bigger, perhaps. Quibbling over all of the minor things like colors seems counterproductive. I’d be able to live with the Italian colors so long as the amount of effort that went into previous translations and scripts was returned to the books.
I agree in part, but earlier IDW introduced a lot of new ideas and characters who hadn’t been seen in the US, and really gave us an “expanded Disney universe” of sorts. Even now with Fantagraphics’ Disney Masters, we’re still seeing some of the longer or more dated material that even Gemstone didn’t run. I just think that the current plans were a step backwards. Which is a pity, because I really want to like the current issues of Uncle Scrooge better than I do. Uncle Scrooge is the hardest book (for me) to give up on as a long-time fan.
There really isn't as much consistency even within the various "groups" of creators as some might claim. Example: Guido Scala, who was Italian, never drew the bin with the dome. It looked similar to the picture quoted in this post, but with more emphasis on the "red" as opposed to the "yellow". On the other hand, the same thing was also done in various Egmont stories produced for the pocketbooks - such as that boring Michael T. Gilbert story drawn by none other than Giorgio Cavazzano, I'm too lazy to look it up right now, but that also had a very similar look to the posted scan.
