Hey, a top-notch animator who doesn't have GROO
experience definitely needs to be educated. I can see
it now, GOOF THE WANDERER. "GARSH!!! What did that
Mouse mean I'm slow of mind, ARHYUCK!!!

HEy, there's no better advertising than word of mouth,
so keep spreading the word, GROOP! I keep an extra
copy of THE GROO ADVENTURER at my desk to lend out
occasionally; I especially like to give it to people
with kids who ask me for a recommendation for comics
suitable for younguns. 

I also buy extra copies of new current Sergio/Mark
efforts as well as select sundry titles that I enjoy,
and give them to people who don't normally read
comics.  This helps them see how comics have evolved
over the years; many people are surprised at the
intelligent stories that are sometimes (sadly, not
always) told in today's comics.

Comic readership in general is down; I think it has to
do with the sheer number of entertainment options we
are all presented with today. Anything we can do to
get new fans to choose comics - and Groo specifically
- helps comics as a whole. 

AS soon as we get a definite release date for GROO:
DEATH AND TAXES, we should all TALK IT UP!!!
