ME: Just out of curiosity...what is the appeal of a signed set of
comics?  Do you think it will make the books more valuable for resale
at some point in the future?  Do you just think it makes the books
more special?

I run into people who have every issue of GROO and they want them all
signed.  This, I don't get.  I have every book Harlan Ellison has
written but, even though he's been a close friend for 30 years, I
don't think I have more than one or two of them signed.
