Me Too!!!!  The art is so dense!  I just love it.  Sergio told me it took
him more than twice as long to do Space Circus than a typical Groo comic.
btw, he also told me he thinks it takes him about 8 hours to do a one page
splash page and 16 hours to do a two pager.  He doesn't do them all at once,
but works on them over a period of days.  And he was REALLY ticked off about
the way they printed the two page circus scene in Space Circus #2.  It goes
to the edges of the page on all four sides and they cut off anywhere from
1/8 to 3/4 of an inch of the art work!!

Hey Nate!  Tell Mike he had at least one more sale because of your
contribution.  (Ah, I knew him when he was just a struggling young artist.
Hmm. OK, OK, so he's still a struggling young artist.  But now he's got his
name in print!)
