Re: So-called "Groo" Miniature
Actually, That looks kinda like that "serious" groo... you know, when that
artist drew a serious looking groo? There's a whole card set on it... Could
that be what that miniature is supposed to be? I'm not sure, I think it was
drawn by "Tex" or Bernie wrightson (can't spell)... but I have seen the
cards... A really buff seriously drawn Groo...
On another note... I have three complete sets of Epic #1-120, Pacific
issues 1-8, The Eclipse Special, StarSlayer#5, and Destroyer Duck#1, and
about half missing from a 4th set. I've also got the Buttons, 2 T-shirts,
2 Posters.. but only one set of the miniatures though... I never knew
anyone else who had that many groo's... I've also got a complete set of
Plop! (you remember that one?) :).
Do you have multiple complete sets too, or am I the only Groo Mental head in
Have you met the group? (Mark, Sergio, Tom, Stan) I had my golden
opportunity to see them When they were all at the Golden Apple Comic shop in
Reseda, Ca... But of course, it was on a thanksgiving weekend (back in `86
or `87)and my Mom wouldn't let me go because My Granny was home visiting...
That was the only time Groo ever made me cry. :(
Let me know if I'm wrong about that Groo mini on Ebay...
