Hi, Groop.  Sorry I've been too busy to participate lately.  Here's some 
stuff that might interest you...

1. Sergio, Stan, Tom and I will of course be at the Comic-Con in San 
Diego.  I'm hosting sixteen (!) panels.  The ones that will most 
interest you folks (i.e., the ones with Sergio on them) are a SERGIO & 
MARK PANEL on Thursday at 1 PM, the QUICK DRAW! panel on Saturday at 
11:15 AM and a MAD MAGAZINE panel on Saturday at 3 PM.

This year for QUICK DRAW!, the cartoonists will be Sergio, Scott 
Shaw!...and the third cartoonist will be the one guy Sergio is a little 
afraid of when it comes to being able to whip out fast, hilarious 
cartoons.  So this is one you won't want to miss.

I'm also hosting a GOLDEN AGE PANEL, spotlights on a half-dozen people, 
three panels about cartoon voices, a JACK KIRBY panel, a DAVE STEVENS 
tribute and a bunch of others.  If you want to find me when I'm NOT 
hosting a panel, I will most often be found at the booth of Harry N. 
Abrams, the publisher that put out my Jack Kirby book.

I am only open to hugging by people who are really, really cute.

2. I will also be at the CONvergence in Minneapolis from July 3 thru 
July 6.  The entire Groo Crew will be at the Mo-Kan Comics Conspiracy in 
Kansas City on September 20 and 21.  Then I'll be at the Mid-Ohio Con in 
Columbus, Ohio on October 4 and 5.

3. This weekend, Sergio is drawing the cover for the collected paperback 
of GROO: HELL ON EARTH and I'm writing the foreword.

4. Work is proceeding slowly on GROO/CONAN but it is proceeding.  No 
release date yet.  No news on the movie, either.

5. As you know, Sergio and I continue to write THE SPIRIT for DC.  And 
I'm taking on writing the INDIANA JONES ADVENTURES paperbacks for Dark 
Horse, starting with #2.

That is all for now.
