Dark Horse have announced today, in the lead up to New York Comic Con, that Sergio Aragones, Mark Evanier, Stan Sakai, and Tom Luth are set to bring us a full year of Groo: Friends and Foes, arriving January 21st, 2015.
Each month of this year-long series, Groo and his faithful pooch, Rufferto, encounter a different acquaintance–or enemy–with the usual dire consequences! In #1, Groo crosses paths with Captain Ahax, the seaman with the world record for most ships sunk by the all-time stupidest character in comics! Brought to you by the award-winning team of Sergio Aragonés and Mark Evanier!
Eisner-winning letterer Stan Sakai and colorist Tom Luth round out this all-start team!
That is quite the announcement and bound to add an extra spring to the step of fans at NYCC. As someone who's been reading Groo since I was 10 years old, I'm particularly excited by this, and that's definitely on the record. Make sure to ask Dark Horse more about this at their booth at NYCC. I'll be doing so.
