Where can I find the secret messages?

Several of the Groo Comics have a hidden message somewhere in the story. Below are a list over the messages I know of. Just click on the item and you'll have the opportunity to know where you can find them.

PS! If you know of any hidden messages in Groo comics that I don't have listed here, please let me know.

What exactly is "mulching"?

"Mulching" was a running joke in Groo-Grams (The letterpage in Groo) when Groo was published by Marvel/Epic, and had no meaning at all. But for those of you who miss it, (Can't see why..), here is the definition in both English and Spanish.

The Definition of Mulching in English:

"Mulching is a process of inbred fertilization which employs certain decomposed organic materials-- including, but not limited to animal sediment-- to blanket an area in which vegetation is desired. The procedure enriches the soil for stimulated plant development while, at the same time, preventing erosion and decreasing the evaporation of moisture from the ground."

The Definition of Mulching in Spanish:

"Mulching" es un proceso de ferilization que emplea ciertos materiales organicos en decomposicion-- incluyendo pero no linitando sedimentos de origen animal-- recubrir una area en la cual se desea vegatacionn. El proceso enriqueze la tierra estimulando el desarrollo vegetal minetras wue al mismo tiempo prevee la erosion y disminuye la evaporacion de humedad en el terreno"

How much are the Groo comics worth?

These are the prices from WIZARD #78,
February 1998.

As you can see, this list is not complete, but it's all I have access to at the moment. If you happen to have a more complete list, please send it to me, and I'll update it this list.

Where can I get American Groo Comics in Norway?

Simen Josefsen, of Outland, has several good Comic shops in Norway. He's got a good deal of comics and nice prices. (I wouldn't have managed to get my collection so complete without his help. Thanks Simen.)

How many stories has there been made?

Have made a summary over the stories published about Groo and friends. This list is fairly big, so I've included it in two different versions.
