Groo the Wanderer is a fantasy/comedy comic book series written and drawn by Sergio Aragonés, rewritten, coplotted and edited by Mark Evanier, lettered by Stan Sakai, and colored by Tom Luth.

Sergio Aragonés Domenech (born 1937) is a cartoonist and writer probably best-known for his contributions to Mad magazine.
- There once was a barbarian --
Who roamed about the plains --
And used the power of his sword --
To substitute for brains.

- His mighty swords are in his hands --
His eyes are flaming red --
He doesn't have a bit of fear --
Or brains inside his head.
