    I've been reading Groo since he started at Pacific Comics, and to say this was unpredictable is a credit to its creators. They continue to keep this funny and entertaining to read, which is an absolute joy in a medium drowning in somber, grim heroics.Fun for all ages. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Waylon Piercy Mar 19, 2015

    Aragones has crafted a plot as absurdly delightful as his readers have come to expect, and Evanier's script is at its usual level of sublime ridiculousness. Aragones is in a class of his own as an artist, and every panel is a visual feast, as ever. The meticulous background details and hidden gags that have become his trademark are present and accounted for, all brought to vibrant life by Atiyeh's impeccable colors. In a marketplace that favors people in tights punching each other, Groo: Friends and Foes is an extremely strong reminder that there are some great humor comics out there, too. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 18, 2015

    I've always had an affection for the Arba and Dakarba characters since they play well with magic and there's a kind of fun banter between the two as they work through their plans, both of which is well handled here. There's plenty of familiar gags and the way things play out are easily telegraphed, but there's just so much pleasure in watching so many freak out at Groo being there that being enslaved by the pair seems like it might be a better option. Rufferto naturally gets plenty of fun moments along the way, and his own little one-page comic at the end, and just watching the villagers in general adds to the overall effect. And Groo is his own special little snowflake that just keeps it all rolling right along for another very enjoyable adventure. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Adam Kelly Mar 18, 2015

    When I first started reviewing this series, I was a bit worried that there wouldn't be longevity and we'd get just random stories thrown together and a laugh here and there but not much. It might be a little too early to say, but so far I've enjoyed my time with this book and can imagine the misadventures of Groo and Rufferto are going to get even more ridiculous. Read Full Review
