The Valiant Groo

With the long delayed GROO VS. CONAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE coming out soon (and a return of solo Groo promised soon after), I've been reading a lot of old Groo comics from the Aragones/Evanier/Luth/Sakai team. So lacking anything else to post, expect a few scans of panels that especially tickled me in the next few weeks.

Like this one from the Epic GROO THE WANDERER #16 [1986]:


If you don't get the reference, from Hal Foster's Prince Valiant strip in 1937:


And it was actually a goose, not a duck, but impressive that Groo got it that close.

There might also be another reference related to Mark Evanier's one-time employer.
