>But the real reason I mention the sighting is that it includes a very nice review of Groo with one major ommission-Mark's name is nowhere to be found!  This is particularly staggering since the reviewer-one Fred Patten-even mentions the "one-line jokes and witty dialogue" as one of the comic's strong points. (Along with "sight gags and well plotted humorous stories")  
>I've read a bunch of reviews of Groo and Mark is variously referred to as "collaborator", "co-writer", "partner in crime", or the reviewer plays along with the no-one-knows-what-he-does gag.  But he is always at least MENTIONED!!!  Maybe it was so early in Groo history-there had only been 4 comics when Patten wrote his review-that he didn't have complete info.  Anywho, it was odd to read.
