Groo and his loyal mutt Rufferto sail to a new land where the streets are laid with gold. It could be a fine place to live but for those who want both the souls and the gold of those who live there. One is a longtime friend of Groo-when he isn't trying to kill him . . . the one known as Taranto! And high above, looking down on it all, are the gods themselves. It's a tale of greed and intolerance brought to you by the award-winning team of Sergio Aragon├ęs and Mark Evanier, with lettering by Stan Sakai and coloring by John Ercek and Tom Luth.

    A fun issue, though Groo is not the focus in this installment. There are lots of laughs, but also a lot of commentary. All ages reading that will entertain and enlighten. Read Full Review

    Groo: Play of the Gods continues to be another classic adventure of Groo the Wanderer brushing up against grand plans that he will most certainly mess up. This one definitely gets a recommendation; enjoy with a great bowl of cheese dip. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 9, 2017

    Groo: Play of the Gods has some fun bits to it for both the main storyline and some of what the gods are going through. The gods side is weaker overall, though I appreciated the nod to how weak the Star God is and the fun of the arrival of so many new gods that's going to make things complicated – even if it just feels wonky. Groo himself has some good bits throughout but it's more of an ensemble cast this time around doing things more than anything else and that keeps it brisk and fun. And, as always, worth salivating over all the details in the artwork. Aragaon's big two-page spread here with the arrival is one of his signature pieces that never gets old as it shows us a village full of life and detail. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Doug Warren Aug 9, 2017

    But this story brilliantly satirizes religion and greed, and holds no punches when exploring the motives, and pointing out the hypocisies, of the early explorers. And the artwork is classic Aragonés. Groo fans, and hopefully some new fans, will be very happy. Read Full Review
