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!)
