Ok, so just because there is definitely going to be new Groo doesn't mean we
should go back to sitting on our haunches waiting. Eric is still right. We
need to do some fan promotion.
Mark, what can we do?
I had a plan to get a little retailer survey put together and send it out to
every comic shop in the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia I could find that had
an e-mail and send the responses to Dark Horse. I had gotten the OK for this
from one of Dark Horse's advertising managers and I had already talked to my
local comic shop owner to get an idea of what to ask and how to ask it. I'm
still planning on doing this, although I am now going to rephrase things a
little and wait until Mark says it's OK to go public with the Groo News.
Btw, My local comic book shop said he will buy somewhere between 50-100 Groo
25th Anniversary Specials because he knows he can sell half of them right
away and the other half over time because Groo one shots are easy to sell.
He liked the Pacific/Epic/Image Groos better than the DH mini-series from a
business perspective because they were primarily each a self contained story
and that made them easier to sell than a series. Groo is currently the only
back issue comic he will buy because they always sell. Interesting.
I have no idea if that's typical and I don't know how that balances out with
TPB sales, but it might certainly bode well for Sergio's "Friends & Enemies"
series idea if it is ever resurrected. That is a series AND each comic is
self contained, so you satisfy everyone (?)
Anywho, if the Groo mini-Series will come out in August, hopefully Dark
Horse will have a promotion going by Con Time in July. That would be sweet!
Dougies art is awsome. I hope other talented Groopies are at their drawing
boards. Take care all -Gary G.
