Groo: Friends and Foes #4

   It's impossible for me to say anything bad about the new Groo: Friends and Foes series.

   That's because it's another example of Sergio Aragones and Mark Evanier being the best in the comics business.

   This new series has been terrific, with stories that rank with Groo's best adventures (that's a compliment - honest)!

   And the artwork is amazing! Aragones creates a stunning breed of dragon here, and (as the cover indicates), he doesn't skimp on the scales (or the teeth).

  The stories with Arcadio are always fun - he's the handsome hero who is Groo's exact opposite - and here he's working a scam involving trained dragons. Of course, when his former "assistant" Groo turns up... well, let's just say that things go amiss.

   The other reason I can't speak ill of Groo is because the recent collection of the Groo vs. Conan series used a quote from this website on the back cover!

   I know, right?

   What an honor! I was already a huge fan of this series - but now I'm a supporter for life!
