Re: T-Shirt Mania!!!!(etc.)
1st off: I tried to send an e-mail to Azamin and it got rejected twice.
I've been sending him messages all the time, including earlier today. What
gives e-mail experts?

OK, now hold on there. Ruben, Mike Slaughbaugh, and some guy he knows in
Tennessee are more into everything Sergio than I am, at least as far as
cataloguing and/or collecting it. And Mike and MAD-Andy and a whole bunch
of folks are a lot more into MAD than I could ever be. The only way I can
get away with being as wacked out about Groo as I am is because that's all
I do. If I expanded my hobby I'd go broke, lose my job, and probably
(justifiably) get thrown out of the house!

T-Shirts: There are 9 Groo T-Shirts that I know of. Only 4 were "Mass
Market" and only one of those is still available through Grapphitti
Designs. The other three are unearthed occassionally at a shop. But they
are rather rare. In addition, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund T-Shirt
that has the Groo and the Thought Patrol drawing on it is always available
for a $20 donation.
In addition to these 5, there has been the Groo Game T-Shirt, a 1996 San
Diego Comic Con Volunteer Groo T-Shirt, a 1985 Charlotte N.C. Heroes
Convention Groo/Cerebus T-Shirt, and now the Malaysian Groo T-Shirt. The
first 3 are extremely rare. (So is the 4th one, but thanks to Azamin, we
can get it!) I have heard rumors of another Groo/Cerebus Convention
T-Shirt, but have not been able to confirm anything.
I can give you more details about the shirts if you want them. But for now
suffice to say that of the 9, three are currently available while the other
6 are a very hard find indeed.
take care all -Gary "Who MAY have the Heroes Convention T-Shirt soon"
