Hi Sean & Dizzy!

Short answer to your question:  Not recently.

Long answer:

There were two short series (5 & 4 issues) of Groo comics printed in an
oversize format in 1984/85 and 1990.  The first set reprinted the Pacific
series and the Epic Special.  The second series repinted Epic 10, 11, 12, 13
and also tossed in the 5 Sage stories from Pacific  In addition, the Geman
version of Epic Illustrated (Art fur Erwachsene #14-1985) included the Groo
short from Epic Illustrated #27. Then Dino started doing a German version of
the Dark Horse Mini-Series without first printing them as single comics. In
fact, they have now produced the German TPB for the last two Dark Horse Groo
mini-series BEFORE Dark Horse!

Also, thanks for the ebay link.  The Groo der Blahabar - Heft 3, is from the
1990 series and has a reprint of Epic Groo #12.  Thanks to THE WONDERFUL
GERMAN GROOPIES, I already have it.

Take care -Gary G.
