*Compiled by Ruben Arellano (rubena@unixg.ubc.ca) 
*Last updated January 12, 1996

	There is some overlap between the Groo and the 'regular' sections.  For
example, Groo 
often appears as a toy hanging from Sergio Aragones' desk in
self-caricatures.  I clasify such 
an appearance as a 'regular' item & a Groo item.  Though, items in which
Groo is the subject, 
are not on the 'regular' list.  (I figured Groo fans are pretty
fanatical about collecting, 
especially in times of Grout [Groo-drought])

	Please send me any additions, corrections, criticisms, etc. But please
include: Issue #, 
Publisher, Publication Date, and what Aragones content there is (story
titles please). Thanks.
