I don't know how exectly they reprint Malaysian Groo, but I was told by The Sun
newspaper's library people that they use the original Groo comic books as a
source to reprints.  Maybe they scann the comic pages as some of the reprints
drawings suffers a bit less quality than the original drawings.  maybe after
the reprints were printed, they delete/destroy the files as it may only just a
scanned images of Groo comic book pages.
