You mean I just spent a whole heap of money buying all the Epic Groo's I 
was missing and now you're going to reprint them?  Did I err?

One way to do it would be to reprint all the 3 and 4 issue stories in a 
separate book.  In that way, it'd kind of be like having a "Thaiis" or 
"Wager of the Gods" graphic novel...

My favourite Groo tale from Epic would have to be the one where he was 
wandering around looking for frays, cheese dip, kopins, ships to sink, 
people to help, or his friends (Taranto, Chakaal, Sage, Pal n' Drumm, 
Arba and Dakarba, Minstrel, etc).  This issue sound familiar to anyone?  
I can't remember the number, but it was somewhere between 1 and 120...

You don't know what mulch is?  That's OK, we can tell you...Let's see, 
how did it go?  "Mulching is a process of ... ?"	:-)
