Groo is eternal and Groo is back with Groo: Friends and Foes, a year long series by Mark Evanier and Sergio Aragones, Stan Sakai and Tom Luth, the same team that’s been turning out this book since the 80s. In the first issues, Groo meets Captain Ahax, the seaman with the world record for most ships sunk. It’s a safe asumption that all hell will break loose from that point on.

Huh, well blow me down with a womp rat. Over the 20 years of Dark Horse’s Star Wars license they built up a healthy business in selling collected editions of their “expanded universe” stories.
