Very many, what an odd thing to say. I very much think so.

Yes, you really can't translate "ege" properly here while also translating "multaj." One might say "not very many {whatevers}" but otherwise, no. "A great number of newspapers" would work, but isn't currently accepted.

Since ege is an adverb modifying havas, I would think that some idiom like in spades would be appropriate, although here that would make multajn somewhat redundant:

"The Esperanto press has a lot of newspapers and magazines, in spades."

Very many is a perfectly fine native English usage. Very, very, extremely, perfectly okay!
