About 6 months ago, a Groo item I had never seen or heard of before
popped up on ebay. It was a parochial Anime Fanzine from the early 80's
with a Groo sketch used as a cover. (Groo being chased by a monster
robot. The magazine was CFO Magazine, Vol. II, No. 3.
I figured it would go for $25-$30 (afterall, it was a sketch, not a full
blown drawing) But I put in a bid much, much higher than that and much
to my surprise, I was outbid! And I thought, well, at least I jacked
the price way up on the guy. (Harumphh!) Then it turned out that the
other guy was a Groopie; our own Anil! (Oops! Sorry Anil!)
Naturally, I immediately launched into Search Mode. I mean, heck, how
hard could it be to track down a 25 year old fanzine produced by a
fledgling local Anime fan club? Well, it was a little tough. But a few
weeks ago I struck pay dirt and actually tracked down a mint copy. Yay!
I also managed to get one for Yoda, my faithful partner in crime.
Now if I could just find one of those Groo Buttons that Chriten made for
the 1988 San Diego convention...
Take care all,
