The three most inevitable things in the world are death, taxes, and another Groo collection from Dark Horse Maverick. This one is about the other two: Groo and his loyal pooch Rufferto encounter a king who is forever raising the cost of living and an undertaker who drives up the cost of dying. So the kingdom goes to war against ... well, they're not exactly sure of that part yet. But they're definitely going to war. What a time for Groo to be trapped in his solemn vow not to kill! And if you think that makes him any less dangerous, you don't know Groo. He's even worse ... as the savage warrior, Odoman the Invincible, finds out the hard way. The Eisner Award winning team of Sergio Aragones and Mark Evanier do it again ... and if you're thinking that "it" involves anything other than bringing you some of the best adventures of the world's stupidest barbarian, you'd probably be wrong!

Aragones's dimwitted barbarian, Groo, has been comically messing up for nearly 30 years, and he hasn't learned a thing in all that time.

Aragonés's blundering barbarian has been creating mirth and defining mulch (one of Groo's many running gags) for nearly 20 years, but the humor remains as sharp as ever.
