Mushroom Soup Monday

mushroomsoup149

We're again declaring it Mushroom Soup Monday. I'm not sure why I picked a can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup to post as the symbol of me being really, really busy but I did and I have all these neat graphics I made to use up…so Mushroom Soup Monday it is. Posting here will be light today unless, as happens too often, I have to race back to put up an obit. Gee, I hope I don't have to do that.

Before I submerge, a few brief announcements, the main one being that I spoke too soon. The Time-Warner e-mail problem which looked so fixed the other day now looks so unfixed.

Also: Several folks who won't be at Comic-Con this year have written to me about the Stan Sakai benefit book I mentioned. They all had the same idea, which is that people who are there should buy multiple copies of it, get them signed by the artists in attendance, then put the books up on eBay and donate the proceeds to the Sakais. Yeah, I think that would be a great idea.

Lastly for now: I keep getting e-mail asking me when, oh when, will there be a big reprint project that will reissue all the Groo stories to date in big, fancy hardcover volumes? Here's how I'm answering the messages I answer: We've agreed to do it, the publisher has agreed to do it and we're trying to get the details ironed out. We may or may not be able to announce them at Comic-Con but I'm reasonably sure the first books in such a series will be out before the 2015 Comic-Con. And that's really all there is to say about it at the moment.

I'll be back later today…just not very often.
