Groo: Friends and Foes #3 Review


The year of Groo continues with another odd adventure with the world’s craziest barbarian but this time there is a little twist. Read on to find out more.

The official description from Dark Horse:

As the Year of Groo bumbles on, the world’s stupidest barbarian and his dog wander into those two sinister witches, Arba and Dakarba . . . who have a scheme to conjure up a giant duplicate of Groo! That means more Groo for your buck! Brought to you as always by Sergio Aragonés, Mark Evanier, Stan Sakai, and Tom Luth!

groofrifo3p1This issue was a ton of fun and very silly. Okay, so it seems that two witches from Groo’s past have had a need for him for a while, since they learned the fear that he gives is pretty powerful. This whole issue is them trying to create a giant Groo because they are huge as well. However, you should know that anything that involves Groo never goes according to plan. The issue is pretty quirky and has some very fun moments. Groo has a heart of gold and just shows it through all this issue. My only complaint is that I wish the writer would give him a little bit of brains. I get that he should be innocent but he just seems too dumb but it’s still pretty great.

Mark Evanier does a great job with the issue and continues to deliver on the fun. Again, the only concern that I have is the dumbing of Groo. I just need a little intelligence.

Kicking butt at the art, Sergio Aragones, delivers on the cartoon fun and is fantastic at what he does.[ I really love his style, especially, for this comic. It just fits the writing so darn well.

Groo: Friends and Foes #3 is a wonderful issue just needs a little brain.

    Well, Groo is supposed to be extremely dumb. While he was still in the womb, his father offended a sorcerous king who cursed his son to be brainless.
