Alright!!!!   Wondercon news!!!!!!!!!
As the panel began in earnest, the topic switched to the status of  Groo 
    *   Evanier has completed a script for the “Groo the Wanderer’ _movie_ 
(http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=9866#)  and Aragones 
has completed artwork  for the move, but further progress is currently tied up 
in negotiations.  
    *   A Groo/Conan crossover has been in the works and all involved have  
been supportive and enthusiastic. Editor Bill Stout was hospitalized for a  
while (he’s fine now), and a new editor has come onboard, bringing the project  
back to square one.  
    *   Dark Horse wanted to reprint “Groo the Wanderer” collections in a  
digest-sized format, but Aragones and Evanier objected, as they felt the art  
wouldn’t work as well in a smaller format. They announced that Dark Horse will  
continue to publish the collections in the trade paperback format, with the  
next volume being named “The Groo Parade.”  
    *   Dark Horse will also be collecting “Magnor,” a superhero book that  
the two did for Malibu in the early ‘90s. According to Aragones, Malibu  
originally approached the duo with a proposal to create a superhero that could  
translate into a _video game_ 
(http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=9866#)  property – not exactly the  two’s normal approach. The two put 
together a fun book that wasn’t quite what  Malibu had in mind, but the company 
put together a marketing push, even flying  Aragones to Philadelphia to sell 
signed copies of “Magnor” #1 on QVC! Long out  of print, this new collection 
was prompted after Dark Horse Editor Diana  Schutz read a Spanish collection 
of these issues. Evanier joked that he hopes  that this collection will help 
reduce the number of questions he gets about  his “Magnor” vanity plates.
