I just wanted to say a huge "thankyou" for this lengthy post. Being what
you would consider a newbie, I'm completely and utterly hooked and doing
my best to get what Groo comics and merchandise I can.
The biggest stumbling block so far is the postage/shipping; t-shirts,
posters, statuettes and some of the rarer TPBs are unbelievably expensive
to ship to the UK.
I'm quite chuffed with myself that I managed to get a copy of the game
plus expansion for 40 pounds (80 dollars) and a bunch of the GNs. I'm
currently addicted to Groo and don't mind admitting it. I'd love to get a
t-shirt and poster, but time will tell.
So yeah, I'm grateful for your lengthy post, Tone, thanks.
Any other fellow UK Groopies here?
