The team behind the hit Groo the Wanderer series goes to Comic-Con, finding inspiration not only in their enthusiastic fans but in their fellow creators, too-especially those working on Tarzan comics. Sergio Aragonés finds a way to introduce the two characters to each other, and so Tarzan, the lord of the jungle, is set on a path that will lead him to Groo, the master of cheese dip. Also includes the return of the Rufferto backup strips!

Groo and Tarzan return to Dark Horse in this exciting crossover!

    With a good bit of story for both characters that move them forward just enough, we also get a little more time with Evanier and Aragones at the reserve, which does not go well for anyone involved. We also get a Rufferto one-page on the bak cover which is a real delight. The book is awkward in the way it frames the stories for both Tarzan and Groo when you might expect something more traditionally told right from the start, but I'm liking the presentation and curious to see just how far it'll actually go. Aragones is a really gifted artist and Yeates has some gorgeous material here for a character that is admittedly still a tough sell for many today. It's a curious mix and I'm intrigued to see where this team will go. Read Full Review

    I dont have a bad thing to say about Groo Meets Tarzan, other than they havent met yet. Im not sure what will happen when they do. Fight? Eat cheese dip? Who knows until next month but Groo Meets Tarzan is not at all what I was expecting but Im glad I read it. Mostly a funny story, but the Tarzan moments do throw some serious moments into the mix. Its a very enjoyable comic showcasing that Sergio and Mark are the best at the comedy side of comics. I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    This is a must buy for fans of either character, though if you're in the dark for either Tarzan or Groo, you might want to miss this one. Read Full Review
