''Groo the Wanderer'' is a ComicBook created and drawn by Creator/SergioAragones and written by him and Creator/MarkEvanier (with Creator/StanSakai lettering). It started off as a parody of {{Barbarian Hero}}es, most notably [[ConanTheBarbarian Conan]], making fun of fantasy tropes along the way. As the series continued, however, the stories have shifted to general comedy, with occasional commentary on RealLife social events and situations. Over the last twenty-five years, more than 150 issues have been printed by five different publishers, most recently by Creator/DarkHorseComics.

* ReadingIsCoolAesop: Played with, but not actually averted, in the 100th issue. Trapped with a wise old man in a library-cave with no exits, Groo gets bored enough to pay attention to the old man's teachings. Eventually a group of greedy treasure-hunters hearing about 'the treasure of the cave' intrude, and in their search for gold and jewels set the library on fire. Taranto and Pal were among the looters, and their usual attempts to trick Groo into helping them only led to a sound pummeling. (Drumm, whom Groo dimly recognizes as DumbMuscle like himself, got off with a warning.)

* ReadingIsCoolAesop: Though parodied abit is mostly played straight in the 100# issue. Groo discover his joy of reading, unfortunately a bunch of treasure hunting jerk attack the town and destroy the library he was working at, pissing him off. Even Taranto and Pal (Those who usually avoid being attack by groo directly) were beaten senseless by him. Heck it actually subvert this usual gag.

Groo decided to just kill the guy before he goes through that again.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Happens to Groo fairly often.
** Also the Sage, he tries to give good advice but it does get misinterpret or causes more damage then good. One example being that he once told a king to build a wall to keep Groo out, it escalated REALLY quickly. Sad part? Groo wasn't in this issue.



** Dragons in Groo can often breathe fire
