[Groop] All this talk about bringing back items from the

The "company," such as it was, was an aspiring comic book artist and his
wife who lived in Ojai. He worked at a textile/embroidery business, so he
had connections to getting the high quality work done overseas. Everything
was in their garage and after the first round of sales all inventory was
turned over to Sergio and has long since sold at conventions. Last year a
friend who had helped them found a small stash of the items and sold them on
ebay, but that's about it. Steve and his wife have moved half-way across
So, bottom line, a number of happy coincidences brought it all together and
it almost certainly won't happen again. Poop! -Gary G.
