ME: No, don't shut up.  We don't want story ideas but you're not
talking about story ideas.

I don't disagree with your feelings.  As a reader, I never cared much
for continued stories.  Oddly enough, I just received the GROO &
RUFFERTO paperback today and I really like the material in "complete"
format a lot more.  We're talking about doing another graphic novel
and we're also talking about doing the next mini-series in a slightly
different way...four stories that would be connected but would also be
more self-contained.

As I've mentioned here before, the comic book industry is in a lot of
trouble; many well-known titles are operating at a loss.  GROO, in its
present format, is managing a small, reliable profit and this may not
be the time to tamper too much with it.  But we probably will.
