The gods did not bless Groo with brains, only with the ability to battle. Now, they themselves are in conflict over the spirit and future of mankind . . . and it is Groo who becomes the pawn (unwitting, of course) in their war. If the future of humanity depends on the wanderer-we're all in a lot of trouble.

It's the basis for the new twelve-issue Groo limited series, Groo: Fray of the Gods, featuring a fable told by the same old guys as always: Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier, with Tom Luth coloring, and Stan Sakai on the lettering pen.

    A new Groo saga has begun and anyone can jump in comfortably with this first issue. The gods better have someone they can pray to for help if Groo is going to crossing their paths. A laugh out loud story with lush illustrations — Now with gods! Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    But while Groo may be dim, his adventures are often very smart and subtle - and this one may well tread on a few toes before it's done. Read Full Review

    A solid start overall that has me hopeful for some big things ahead in the next few installments of this longer running storyline than normal. Read Full Review

    If this series sounds completely insane, then that is because it is. The Groo stories are definitely not some historical parable intent on bringing the past to life. Instead, it's very much a “check your brain at the door, strap yourself in and enjoy the ride” type of comic. It takes a comedic swipe all the barbarian or warrior films like Conan and Sinbad, mocking them for that which they take so seriously and making you smile while doing it. Read Full Review

    A mildly contradictory book (man's folly as bro-fest) with lots of potential. A worthy addition to the history and legend that is Groo. Read Full Review
