Youd think the smartest man in the world would be wise enough to not have Groo as a friend! The Sage has developed another scheme to amass wealth without working hard . . . but how clever can a scheme be that relies in any way on our hero? From the award-winning team of Sergio Aragons and Mark Evanier.

    With the Sage trying to run his game here in order to change the nature of things for the better, it unsurprisingly doesn't work out for just about anyone involved in the situation. But for the reader, what we get is a very fun little adventure in economics, trade and building things with manual labor. The Sage sees things and tries to figure out better ways to do it for all involved, though it looks at only a piece of the puzzle. But what we get as the reader is a very fun little comedy that brings these two together and let's Groo help by not helping. And there's a lot of fun in watching that play out. The book also makes out great by Aragone's artwork in a general sense, but the two page spread of the Sage viewing the bridge is fantastic in what it offers in terms of detail and showing what a lived in scene should look like.

    The Only "problem" with Groo is that it's so consistently well drawn, funny and well written that it's easy to overlook. A more variable quality title might get more of a rise out of people. Can't recommend is book highly enough.
