Cosmic Treadmill ep. 91 - Groo the Wanderer #1 (1982)


What ho, fair comics enthusiasts! In this episode, professional barbarians Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) indulge their wanderlust when they read Sergio Aragones' Groo the Wanderer #1, published by Pacific Comics in 1982! After a bio on Sergio and the issue's "translator" Mark Evanier, they dive right into the fray of the first issue, detailing every page. After a break, they come back to wrap up the info about the creators, then tell the history of Pacific Comics. Plus, a little etymology lesson on the word "barbarian!" All this, and a couple of nice reviews found on Stitcher. This episode is more fun than a tankard of mead, you don't want to miss it!




Thanks for J. Jones-Goldstein for the suggestion!
