The "Expensive Edition" of THE GROO CHRONICLES takes the six issues
that Marvel/Epic printed and collects them. Graphitti bought press
overruns of the insides and bound them all together, plus they printed
a new dust jacket and a new introduction which I wrote and which was
illustrated with old Sergio drawings. There was also a "signature
page" which Sergio and I signed and which made me envious of artists
with names like Jim Lee and Al Vey.
The best part of the whole thing, in my opinion, was the copy that I
wrote for the flaps of the dust jacket.
The paperback reprint of THE LIFE OF GROO is out from Graphitti.
They're supposed to do a hardcover collecting that and THE DEATH OF
GROO but I have no idea when they'll get around to it. (Our publisher
in Spain just put out a nifty paperback that collects both graphic
novels in a "flip book" format. The front cover of one is the back
cover of the other and vice-versa. Sergio did new covers and
frontispieces for it and that material will probably be used in the
Hope to see some of you in San Diego. Sergio will have a table there
and I'll probably be hovering around it on occasion.
