Ah, finding a new issue of Groo at the comics shop is just like running into an old, dear friend.
You know what to expect - a funny, entertaining comic. You'll find terrific art by the king of humor comics, Sergio Aragones, along with a fun story (also by Sergio), and a clever script written by Mark Evanier.
You'll also find thoughtful ideas and deeper meaning hiding behind the huge sight gags and the ever-present running gags. This time around we're getting a primer on the economy, and how it affects people both humble of means and richer than sin.
Through it all walks Groo, slow of mind and quick of sword, a living engine of destruction (though quite good-natured about the whole thing).
Will he find the fray of his dreams? Or at least a decent serving of cheese dip? Is there any limit to the number of characters Aragones can squeeze into a splash page? Do mulch jokes ever get old? Just what is that square thing on Groo's chest?
For the answers to none of these questions, buy any issue of Groo. You'll smile, you'll laugh, and you'll wonder why his adventures don't show up every month.
We should be so lucky!
