    There are few things you can depend on: death, taxes, and that Groo is going to cause a disaster that will make you laugh. Sergio Aragones's character continues to create laughs with exceptionally strong stories and artwork. Read Full Review

    Though we get less rhyming this time around, we still got a lot of fun as Groo's journey to everywhere continues with Rufferto at his side. There's something really enjoyable about watching him working hard to do nothing, as he was told, and seeing the way everyone still reacts around him. While I do enjoy his more chaotic moments of action and what it brings to the table, everyone falling all over themselves to avoid trouble is also enjoyable. The book continues what we had in the first installment with its mostly singular focus on a character, this time with Granny Groo, and it does it with such great detail and color design that it's an immensely rich and appealing book from that perspective alone. While it looks "simple" because of the designs, there's such an old school richness and detail to it that it still blows me away after all these years with what Aragones can do. Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this issue and think although it's definitely marketable to children, anyone can enjoy it. There's tons of clever stuff in here from the snarky remarks of Rufferto to a googly-eyed man who asks one of the gypsies to dance for him. Overall, if you're looking for a book that you'll get a few laughs out of and is just a good time to read, check out Groo: Friends and Foes #2. Read Full Review
