'Groo' gets Artist's Edition! 
A View to a Bat
IDW Publishing's latest "Artist's Edition" stars the barbarian, "Groo The Wanderer," by Sergio Aragones and Mark Evanier. 

The oversized, high-quality edition is shot from the original art. 

The book will collect the four-part storyline "The Wager of the Gods," which originally appeared in "Groo the Wanderer" #96-99.

Besides being in every single issue of Mad Magazine for the past 50 years, Sergio Aragones is also the creator of Groo the Wanderer, the hilarious character that is a good natured and extremely honest barbarian, but one who consistently finds himself in the middle of all sorts of misadventures because of his unparalleled stupidity and penchant for misunderstanding. 
In 1982 Sergio, with his frequent collaborator Mark Evanier, launched Groo the Wanderer. Groo has since become one of the most memorable and loveable characters of the last 30 years. This Artist's Edition measures 12 x 17 inches and features four oversized issues, including extras. Added bonus: the very first Groo story by Sergio (in redrawn form) will also be in this book.

Brought to you by the same team responsible for the Eisner Award-winning Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer: The Artist's Edition, as well as Wally Wood's EC Stories: Artist's Edition.

While each "Artist's Edition" appears to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art-for instance, corrections, blue pencils, paste-overs, all the little nuances that make original art unique. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
