Groo the Wanderer (a parody of the Robert E. Howard character Conan the Barbarian) is a fantasy era large-nosed buffoon who constantly misunderstands his surroundings, and, despite his generally good intentions, causes mass destruction wherever he goes. Robert Ervin Howard ( January 22 1906 &ndash June 11 1936) was an American pulp writer of Fantasy, Conan the Barbarian (also known as Conan the Cimmerian, from the name of his homeland Cimmeria) is a Fictional character often associated with Fantasy is a Genre that uses magic and other Supernatural forms as a primary element of plot, theme, and/or setting A jester, joker, jokester, fool, wit-cracker, prankster, or buffoon is a member of a profession that came into popularity Most of his adventures end with him walking away oblivious to the mayhem he has wrought, or fleeing an angry mob. A crowd is a group of people. The crowd may have a common purpose or set of emotions such as at a political rally, at a Sports game, or during Looting As a result, his penchant for destruction has become so widely known and feared that just the news of Groo approaching is sometimes enough to cause chaos when the population reacts to the pending disaster. Groo occasionally meets with respect and good fortune, but it does not last. Respect is esteem for or a sense of the worth or excellence of a person a personal quality or ability or something considered as a manifestation of a personal quality or ability Businesses, towns, civilizations and cultures have all been unwittingly destroyed by Groo. A business (also called firm or an enterprise) is a legally recognized organizational entity designed to provide goods and/or services to A Civilization is a society in which large numbers of people share a variety of common elements Culture (from the Latin cultura stemming from colere, meaning "to cultivate" generally refers to patterns of human activity and the symbolic Such is Groo's incompetence that so much as stepping onto a ship (except in Rufferto's company) will cause it to sink.
Groo and Rufferto
The only thing that has kept Groo alive through all of his adventures is his excellent swordsmanship. Swordsman redirects here For the comic book characters see Swordsman (comics. Groo has slain entire armies on his own with nothing more than his swords, which appear to be a pair of katanas. An army (from Latin Armata "act of arming" via Old French armée) in the broadest sense is the land-based Armed forces A is a type of Japanese sword ( nihontō) and often is called a "samurai sword Groo loves these frays, as he calls them, and often charges into the melee with a cry of "Now Groo does what Groo does best!" So great is his love for battle that Groo seldom bothers to consider which side he is fighting for, and goes on to slay soldiers from either side.
In all of his travels, Groo has encountered literally thousands of characters. However, there is an assortment of recurring characters:
- Captain Ahax, who has, over time, become wise to Groo's effect on ships. Not that it helps him or his sanity.
- Arba and Dakarba, a pair of witches who have suffered much trying to take advantage of Groo. Witchcraft, in various historical anthropological religious and mythological contexts is the use of certain kinds of Supernatural or magical powers They have repeatedly been stripped of their powers because of him. Their names are abrakadabra spelled backwards. Abracadabra (sometimes spelled Abrakadabra) is a word used as an Incantation.
- Arcadio, a handsome warrior, with an especially pronounced chin, who is considered the greatest hero of his time. He has often enlisted Groo as his "lackey", and while Groo has succeeded in his quests time and again, Arcadio always gets the credit.
- Chakaal, a beautiful female warrior who is Groo's equal in swordplay. According to the Random House Dictionary, the term warrior has two meanings Chakaal is strong, noble, and wise, and Groo is madly in love with her. She is as well known as a hero and skilled warrior as Groo is for being a walking disaster, and travels the land seeking people in need of her help. Though she respects Groo's prowess as a warrior, Chakaal is all too aware of his incompetence in other areas, as well as his general stupidity and lack of social graces, and finds Groo at best tolerable when she is in need of his sword, and contemptible otherwise. Romantically speaking, she considers his idiotic advances repulsive, and does her best to ignore them, though she is not above using Groo's feelings for her to convince him to help her in her quests, and will often use Groo as a decoy or sacrificial lamb.
- Granny Groo, Groo's gypsy grandmother. The Romani people (singular Rom, plural Roma as a Noun; also known as Romanies or Roma people) are an ethnic group with origins Granny Groo often tries to use her grandson to aid her in her moneymaking schemes, but invariably ends up giving him a good spanking when he fails. Spanking is a form of Corporal punishment that generally consists of striking the Buttocks of a Child or Teenager, usually by the parents
- Grativo the Wizard, who often punishes Arba and Dakarba for their failures. A magician, wizard, sorcerer or a person known under one of many other possible terms in fiction is someone who uses or practices magic
- Grooella, Groo's sister. While she greatly resembles her brother, the two of them are totally different: Grooella is a Queen. List of current queens regnant A queen regnant (plural "queens regnant" is qualifying reference to a female Monarch possessing and exercising all of the monarchal However, her occasional reliance on her brother for aid has spelled disaster every time, and she despises him. Grooella had long, beautiful blond hair as a child, but one of Groo's "games" (which nearly always ended in the injury of at least one other child) damaged it so that it became black and frizzy. (The Sage developed a one-time-only formula to restore her hair, but Groo "erred" again and rendered the damage permanent. )
- The Minstrel, a singing jester who speaks exclusively in rhyming couplets. minstrel was a medieval European Bard who performed songs whose lyrics told stories about distant places or about real or imaginary historical events Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice, which is often contrasted with Speech. A jester, joker, jokester, fool, wit-cracker, prankster, or buffoon is a member of a profession that came into popularity This article is about the poetic technique For the form of ice see Rime ice. A couplet is a pair of lines of verse. It usually consists of two lines that rhyme and have the same meter He often likes to sing of Groo's deeds, but Groo seldom appreciates his unflattering descriptions of his bungling. The Minstrel seldom appeared in later issues, due to the difficulty of creating his dialogue - "unless the Minstrel vanish / then Mark will go, and Sergio / can write this crap in Spanish. "
- Pal and Drumm, two con men. A confidence trick or confidence game (also known as a bunko, con, flim flam, gaffle, grift, scam, scheme The diminutive Pal is always looking for easy money, but his hulking partner Drumm isn't very bright.

- Pipil Khan, a short and short-tempered conqueror who speaks like Elmer Fudd. Elmer J Fudd is a fictional Cartoon character and one of the most famous Looney Tunes characters He correctly views Groo as the cause of many of his later attempts at conquest ending in disaster, but having never met the man personally, imagines Groo to be a far more imposing figure than he actually is. When he finally meets the real man who's haunted the latter years of his life, the shock kills him.
- Rufferto, Groo's dog and only true friend. Rufferto ran away from his boring life as a spoiled and pampered royal pet to seek adventure, and endeared himself to Groo. In Rufferto's eyes, Groo is a hero and a tactical genius, in Groo's eyes Rufferto is a potential meal. A genius is a person of great Intelligence or remarkable abilities in a specific subject who shows an exceptional natural capacity of intellect and/or ability especially Groo can also safely board a ship in Rufferto's presence.
- The Sage, a wise old man who is usually never far from Groo. Wisdom is a concept of personal gaining of Knowledge, Understanding, Experience, discretion and intuitive understanding, along with a capacity The Sage often attempts to give Groo sound advice, but Groo's stupidity often means that the advice is misinterpreted and only makes situations worse.

A narrative or story is a construct created in a suitable format (written spoken poetry prose images song Theater, or Dance) that describes a sequence of

Groo's adventures take place in an environment that generally resembles Medieval Europe, although his travels have also taken him to places that resemble Africa, Japan, the Middle East and elsewhere. For a topic outline on this subject see List of basic Japan topics. The Middle East is a Subcontinent with no clear boundaries often used as a synonym to Near East, in opposition to Far East. In addition to regular flora and fauna dragons and other legendary creatures occasionally appear, and several cultures use dinosaur-like creatures as beasts of burden. The dragon is a Legendary creature of which some interpretation or depiction appears in almost every culture worldwide A legendary creature is a mythological or folkloric creature (often known as "fabulous creatures" in historical literature Over the years, Groo has also encountered several "non-human" cultures such as the Kalelis and the Drazil.
Groo's adventures have resulted in these "running gags" that have become staples for years. The running gag is an often amusing Joke or reference that appears repeatedly throughout a work or series of works
- Mendicant: Groo becomes violently angry whenever someone calls him a mendicant, even though he doesn't know what it means. The term mendicant (Latin mendicans, begging refers to Begging or relying on charitable donations and is most widely used for religious followers or
- Early Groo tales began with a poem. Almost every Groo story ends with a moral. A moral is a message conveyed or a lesson to be learned from a story or event

- Cheese Dip: Groo's favorite food. Cheese is a Food made from Milk, usually the milk of cows, Buffalo, Goats or sheep, by coagulation. Whenever Groo comes across money, cheese dip is the first thing that comes to his mind.
- Mulch: This agricultural process is often mentioned in casual conversation. In Agriculture and Gardening, '''mulch''' is a protective cover placed over the Soil, primarily to modify the effects of the local Climate. Agriculture refers to the production of goods through the growing of plants and fungi and the raising of domesticated Animals The study of agriculture The Marvel/Epic Comics editions had a long-running gag in the letter column, in which fans would ask Mark Evanier to define "mulch" and he would oblige with the same dictionary definition in every issue.
- "Did I err?": Groo's understatement when he surveys the destruction he has caused, and the closest Groo usually ever gets to grasping just what his effect on the world around him is. (A letter from a fan once pointed out that since "to err is human", the constantly-erring Groo must be the most human character ever created. ) This gag was paid homage to in an issue of letterer Stan Sakai's own comic book, Usagi Yojimbo. is a Comic book series created by Stan Sakai. Set primarily at the beginning of Edo period Japan (early 17th century with anthropomorphic When stopped by enemy samurai and asked for the password Usagi responded, "Uh. . . did I err?"
- "I am the Prince of Chichester. Chichester is a cathedral city in West Sussex, England. It has a long history as a settlement its Roman past and its subsequent importance ": Granny Groo once made Groo memorize that phrase during one of her ill-fated scams. The con fell apart, but the phrase still sticks in Groo's head, and he says it from time to time when he cannot think of anything to say. (The in-joke here is that Daniel Chichester was editor of the comic book at the time. An in-joke (also known as an in joke or inside joke) is a Joke whose Humor is clear only to those people who are "inside" a social )
- "What do you mean, 'slow of mind'?": Groo is often called "slow of mind", but it is usually much later in the story when he finally responds to it. The most extreme example was when Granny Groo called young boy Groo "slow of mind" in a flashback, and adult Groo in the present asked her what she had meant.
- "I can plainly see that!": Groo's response to when somebody says ". . . as any fool can plainly see. "
- "What pirates?": To raise the reward for Rufferto offered by its previous owner, a Queen, Pal once told her that the dog had been kidnapped by pirates, who were demanding a ransom. Piracy is Robbery committed at sea or sometimes on shore without a commission from a sovereign Nation (as distinct from Privateering List of current queens regnant A queen regnant (plural "queens regnant" is qualifying reference to a female Monarch possessing and exercising all of the monarchal Drumm asked "what pirates?" (there were none, of course) in front of the King and the Queen, and later in the story he kept asking Pal that. From time to time, he still asks "(and) what pirates?", especially when he's trying to kill Pal (usually at the end of a story) because one of his plans failed again.
- The house Pal promised to buy Drumm. In a real estate scheme, Pal buys a house for Groo. Drumm wants one, too. Pal agrees, just to quiet him, but Drumm mentions the house quite often.
- "I can drink eight beers! Bring me eight beers!" This phrase appears several times in the comics and was first spoken in issue #1 of Pacific Comics by Taranto. It was next spoken in issue #23 epic/marvel by Drumm. BTW Drumm destroyed half of the said inn and Groo finished the job little later. so far the quote had not been repeated.
- Hidden Messages: Many of Groo's Marvel/Epic issues have a hidden message concealed in the artwork or the dialogue. The hidden message usually reads "This is the hidden message. "
- The Sage's dog: During the Marvel/Epic run of Groo, the question of what the Sage named his dog became one of the most frequently asked questions in the comic's letters page. FAQ is an Acronym for " Frequently Asked Question(s " Eventually, Evanier and Aragones made an announcement that the name of the Sage's dog would be revealed in an upcoming issue, an event which was first postponed from its first scheduled publication either to further the "suspense" or mess with readers' minds. Eventually, after a storyline in which the Sage's dog had been kidnapped and Groo aided him in recovering the dog, the "secret" was revealing in a throw-away moment, with Groo asking in a "by-the-way" manner what the dog's name was, and the Sage replying with the nondescript name, "Mulch" (in itself a reference to another running gag in the Marvel/Epic run, see above).
- Creators: in every issue, one frame has the four creators somewhere among the people (travellers, soldiers, passers by)
- Issue #1: Because of its unusual publication history (see below) there have been at least three different issues of the comic book that were numbered as the "first" issue. Part of the reason for this is that first issues tend to have higher sales and each publisher took advantage of this by starting the numbering over again when they took over. Aragonés satirized this by proclaiming that every issue he wrote was #1.
Groo is initially plotted, roughly written (it has been said that Aragonés does to English, his third language, what Picasso did to faces), and roughly drawn by Aragonés, after consulting with Evanier. Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso (October 25 1881 &ndash April 8 1973 Evanier then writes the dialog, poetry, moral, acts on "insert joke" or "insert Mark-ism" instructions, and changes things around if needed, and then returns the work to Aragonés, who may or may not change things back. Sakai then does the lettering, after which Aragonés does the final artwork, including the word balloons. Finally, Luth does the coloring, described as an unenviable task, since Aragonés' artwork is usually quite detailed (with fancy clothing, building and nature scenes inspired by National Geographic and other sources) and can be full of hundreds of people in one scene. Overview The NGS's historical mission is "to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge while promoting the conservation of the world's cultural historical and natural
Evanier also answers the letters page, something he takes special pride in, since the practice in mainstream comics is to pass this task off to low-level assistants, something he didn't know when his own teenage fan letters were published. He claims that no one knows what he does, and that he doesn't get paid. His official credit, during the Marvel/Epic run, was usually a ludicrously polysyllabic title that changed every issue.
Caricatures of Aragonés, Evanier, Sakai, and Luth often appear as background characters within the stories, sometimes with family members. Evanier and Sakai are also the role models for the characters Weaver and Scribe.
Rufferto was based on Aragonés' own dog named Rufferto, who is actually more mottled than spotted.
Aragonés created the character of Groo in the late 1970s. However at that time no comic book company would allow creators to retain the rights to their characters and Aragonés did not wish to surrender those rights. In 1981, a comic book, Destroyer Duck #1, was published by Eclipse Comics as a benefit to raise money for a legal battle over creator rights; a four-page story contributed by Aragonés featured Groo's first published appearance. Destroyer Duck was an Anthology Comic book published by Eclipse Comics in 1982, as well as the title of its primary story written Eclipse Comics was an American Comic book Publisher, one of several influential independent publishers during the 1980s and early 1990s His second appearance was a few months later in a back-up story in Star-Slayer #5, published by Pacific Comics. Pacific Comics (PC is best known as one of the independent Comic book publishers that flourished in the early 1980s but was also a chain of comics shops and a distributor
In 1982, Pacific Comics began publishing Groo The Wanderer as a regular series. However, Pacific faced various financial difficulties and was only able to publish eight issues of the title. With Pacific unable to publish new material, a single shot issue of material that was originally written for them, titled the Groo Special, was instead published by Eclipse. It should be noted that when Groo was with Pacific, he was not portrayed as a bumbling idiot like was in future issues starting with Epic line. In fact, one issue had him use his brains to create sophisticated traps and his speech was similar to Conan the Barbarian's. Conan the Barbarian (also known as Conan the Cimmerian, from the name of his homeland Cimmeria) is a Fictional character often associated with
Aragonés and Evanier eventually negotiated a deal with Marvel Comics (in their Epic imprint) for that company to take care of publication while preserving creator rights, and this resulted in the longest run of Groo the Wanderer with 120 issues. In 1994, with Marvel facing financial difficulties, the title switched to Image Comics and was retitled Groo. Image Comics is an American Comic book publisher It was founded in 1992 by seven high-profile illustrators as a venue where creators could publish their
When Image in turn faced legal problems after publishing twelve issues, the title switched to Dark Horse Comics in 1998. Dark Horse Comics is one of the largest independent American Comic book publishers behind dominant publishers Marvel Comics and DC Comics Dark Horse is not publishing the title as a regular series but is releasing new material, as well as reprints, as periodic mini-series and collections.
At the 2007 WonderCon, the creators revealed that since 2005 they've been trying to produce a Groo / Conan crossover (both titles are published by Dark Horse) which would have the Wanderer encountering the Barbarian whom he has parodied. Conan the Barbarian (also known as Conan the Cimmerian, from the name of his homeland Cimmeria) is a Fictional character often associated with Unfortunately the project has encountered a number of postponements, but they believe the project may finally be coming to fruition.  On September 9,2007, Longtime Groo writer, Mark Evanier revealed that the Groo/Conan project is a go with no official release date as of yet. 
The character of The Groosalugg in the TV series Angel is generally called 'Groo' by other characters, and is a somewhat naive wandering barbarian hero who is a highly skilled swordsman. The Groosalugg, also known as "Groo" is a fictional character on the WB network 's series Angel. Angel is an American Television series, a Spin-off of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
In Norway, the magazine Pyton once parodied the comic by placing the Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland in the role of Groo. Pyton was a Norwegian Comics series which was produced by the company Gevion, and afterwards Bladkompaniet, between the years 1986 Norway ( Norwegian: Norge ( Bokmål) or Noreg ( Nynorsk) officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Constitutional This article is about the government position For other uses see Prime Minister (disambiguation.
