Re: M.E. polls the Groop



Personally, I like the current method of reprinting the next 4 issues in
sequence, but I can also see the need to keep the 'mini-series' together in
one volume.
How about you keep it going as it is, but if you don't have 4 stories before
a 3 or 4 parter begins, complete the book with one of those new 1-issue
stories you mentioned recently?

That way, the shorter stories will see the light of day, and the book
(already big sellers I think you said) would sell even better because they
have an original story in them!

As I work it out, the next 'mini-series' is "The Scepter of King Cetro", a 3
parter. This will fit nicely as things are going, with that series, followed
by Issue 76, "The mines of Minas".
The problem arises with the Thaiis series. The first of this series would
form the last of 4 comics to appear in 'The Groo Trauma', so how about a new
strip in that one, and start (and finish) 'The Groo Unguent' with the Thaiis
story?

Just a thought.
