Last updated March 31, 1998

NOTE: Throughout his different non-Groo projects, Aragones often included little 'hidden' or minor Groo (or related character or word) appearances. These minor, albeit important to hardcore/insane Groo collectors, appearances are denoted with an '@' at the end of the first line of the entry. The text following describes where the appearance is. CODING EXPLANATION: character default is Groo, whether he appears with or without friends; character names are truncated when Groo doesn't appear (ie: Ruff = Rufferto without Groo); '#' denotes an issue number; 'p' denotes a page number; 'C' denotes Cover; 'BC' denotes Back Cover; 'I' denotes inside; 'LP' denotes Letter Page or similar; and 'TO' indicates Throughout.

Please send me any additions, corrections, criticisms, etc. But please include: Issue #, Publisher, Publication Date, and what Aragones content there is (story titles too, please). Thanks.

My thanks to: Mike Slaubaugh <slaubau@ipfw.edu for his extensive contributions and editing; the Groopies of Groop@groo.com; and Sergio Aragonés for giving me something to go MAD over.
