There was a comic book graphic novelization of the Finnish national epic poem, the Kalevala, done by cartoonist Kristian Huitula. Supposedly, there was a translation done into English by Eino Friberg (who also has translated the KALEVALA itself, though I'm sticking with the Keith Bosley), Does anyone know where this English translation is available or can be purchased?

No idea - you could try asking Don Rosa or the other folk on the DCML mailing list.

If you ever find out, let us know!

I was curious so I did a little searching and found a few possibilities but nothing straight forward, they could just be old pages left around on the web and don't seem to have any ordering info.
