Hi Tone,

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?

Cheers all,
