Newspapers in the missing Scroll

In his German commentary of Asterix and the Missing Scroll Comedix shows the newspaper covers on page 6 of the book.
The journals Imago, Tempus, and Roma Generalis seem to be Roman time variants of BILD, die Zeit and Frankfurter Allgemeine.

The Roma Generalis has a logo-font inspired but its successor in modern times.

Beter explanations? Any more versions known? English, or even the French original?

Edit. I moved the Dutch version to a separate post for better readability.

Intersting. If only somebody had translations of the late books at home... It is easier to collect these kind of things with Cleo et al.
However, a French, Spanish or English version should be found on somebody's bookshelf!?
Can you attach a scan of the Dutch panel?

Since the page we are looking at is only the second of the book, I tried my luck with "have a look" of a large online bookshop. So here is the English edition of the newspapers. Please comment on Custos, Tempora, and Telegraphicus. It would also be interesting to know whether the used fonts match the logo of the original newspapers.

One comment. Note English-Latin "Custos" is twice as expensive as German-Latin Imago :)

Custos should be "The Guardian" , Tempora "The Times" and Telegraphus "The Telegraph". None of the the logos really matches the respective original, least of all Custos.

The Dutch translation of the book has Fides, Mane. and Diurna Populi. Users jaap and Idefiks explain that these refer to Trouw (Fidelity), De Morgen (The Morning), and De Volkskrant (Peoples Newspaper), for instance via the translations of the names and the fonts used in the logos. Wikipedia also mentions that "Acta Diurna" is the name of a government gazette, "Daily acts".

Below the logos of the original newspapers. I see similarities, in font-style, but especially the colour and dot of MaNe. are well done.
