Groo once again encounters his sister, Grooella, who got all the brains in that family . . . not that there were a lot to go around. Shes at war with the Kingdom of Comino, and just when things are going poorly, her brother shows up (as he so often does) to make them worse!

    You'd have to be a mendicant not to like this book. Highest possible recommendation. Read Full Review

    Though not one of my favorites, the Grooella story here is one that works well in presenting another character that inhabits Groo's universe and makes things difficult for him. Well, Groo makes everything difficult for himself, though he never realizes things are difficult or problematic – for him or for other people. The fun here is as we see the way Grooella attempts to use her brother, and his form, to achieve her larger goal. And that's really enjoyable to see unfold because of her distaste for him. But the book continues to win me over just for Aragones' artwork, which is complex and beautifully with all its humor and little gags packed into it, especially when you get an issue like this where there's a lot of soldiers tightly packed together with so many unique expressions and actions. A must for anyone who truly wants to work in the comic art field. Read Full Review

    Even five issues in, I still find myself finding humor in this series and enjoying the issues throughout. There isn't a ton that happens this issue which makes it easier to breeze through, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment. The art is great and vibrant as usual. I really liked the facial expressions this issue, it was especially funny to see Grooella's army frantically trying to tell Groo who they are in a terrified state. Overall, this is another solid entry in the series and I'm looking forward to next month's adventures and left wondering will Kayli ever find her dad? Read Full Review
