[Groop] Hidden Message to the Groop

That completely made my week, seeing my name in Groo! We haven't
received our copy from Things From Another World yet, so I haven't
seen it in person. Thanks for posting the scan. I told the Mensa
message board I'm on about it, and many of them agreed that it is too
cool for words, being a background gag in a Sergio drawing. Go
figure, Groo and Sergio are popular among Mensans.
That was a shrewd marketing move on Sergio's part. My parents spent
my entire childhood and adolescence keeping me as far away from
comics as possible. However, when I told my mother that my name was
in one, she about fell over herself getting the info to order a copy
for her and my dad. Funny how having your kid's name in a comic
suddenly makes comics not just worthwhile, but absolutely necessary
to purchase. Possible that one little background gag in a panel may
snare a new Groo reader out of a comics-averse person.
I can't quite make out the spine on the rightmost book on the upper
shelf. Does anyone have a firm notion about what it says?
