Just want everyone to know that I haven't forgotten the Membership Card
project. However, the combination of the T-shirts and the expansion of
the Membership card project got me all out of whack as far as keeping
membership card stuff organized. Plus I have stuff received from some
folks on my work computer and stuff received from others on my home
computer and some stuff on both computers. Plus some folks paid for the
cards and the shirt at the same time. In addition to all that, the
T-shirt thing came up when there was a very fortuitous, but very short,
lull in my workload, which has since been balanced out by my being
dumped on with several projects that bosses and bosses bosses are
actually paying attention to. So...
I will get everything organized. I will sort out who ordered what color
cards with what words and letters and numbers and years and who has paid
for them. And people will still be able to order cards of either color
if they haven't already.
It just may take a little bit more time than I would like.
Meanwhile, GO TO YOUR LOCAL COMIC SHOP OR THE TFAW WEB SITE AND ORDER 2
OR 3 COPIES OF THE GROO 25TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL.
And tell people you know who used to read Groo or are the type of folks
who might like to read Groo to do the same!!! As Eric pointed out, the
first Dark Horse Groo in 1998 had 21,300 preorders and by the last Groo
in April of 2002, preorders were down to 10,100. (Dropping it from #117
to the 160's.) I don't think the sales through TFAW will show up in the
preorder figures, but that doesn't matter
I don't know if we can actually do anything that will have a substantive
effect on total sales, but we can at least try to spread the word
outside regular comic book channels! I have run into a tons of folks
who have fond memories of reading Groo in the Epic days, but haven't
read him since. If we could just tap into a little of that potential
market that would be something.
OK, I gotta get back to work or I'm gonna be in big trouble. Take care
all -Gary G.
