Mark is the businest man at the Con. It's one of those strange situations
where everyone gets to see him because he's on 137 panels, but it's really
hard to meet him because he's on 137 panels.

The Groo/Conan project seems to be the furthest along according to the last
info Mark gave us.  They intend it to be a 4 part mini-series.  Sergio has
said that Groo/Tarzan will be a little more dificult to pull off because
where as it is easy to mesh Groo's world and Conan's world, doing the same
with Tarzan's world is trickier.  The most exciting project in the works,
and the one with the most obstacles, is the Groo Movie Sergio & Mark have in
the works.  Oh, and in case you were wondering why the trade paperbacks
stopped, Dark Horse wants to print them in a smaller size and Sergio says No

They attend EVERY year.  I believe Mark said it looks like the Groo panel
will probably be Friday and Quick Draw will probably be Sat., but emphasized
that nothing is settled.
