Hi Folks!  Sorry, but today is Dessesbo catches up on his mail day.

I have been told by folks who should know that Graphitti is notorious for
getting stuff out late.  I will call the 800 number tommorrow and ask them
what the score is.  They are great guys as far as I'm concerned, having been
very patient in the past with phone calls from a certain maniacal Groo fan.

There is also a possibility that one of the reasons it's a little behind is
that it may have taken Sergio a little longer than originally planned to get
them the one page of original art that Mark mentioned will be in the book.
I don't know, that's just a thought/guess.  But Space Circus DID have two or
three times the art in it than is typical even for Sergio.

I ordered the book through my comic book shop so as to spread the money
around.  (Also, my comic book shop owner buddies just had baby, so I must
make contributions to the Athena College Fund via my purchases!)  But if
folks want to order the book directly from Graphitti Designs, I'm sure you
can.  (no discount)  The 800 number is 1-800-699-0119.

Take care all -Gary G.
