There's no accounting for taste. That must be why so many accountants are buying Groo collections! This trade paperback collects the latest and greatest adventures of Groo, the world's stupidest barbarian. In a savage land of another era, a goodly segment of the world has long been under the heavy thumb of the evil, power-mad despot known as Pipil Khan. The tyrant wants nothing more than to name an heir and shuck his mortal coil, but one thing stands in his way: Groo! It seems Khan just can't rest easy until Groo is out of the way. He'll give his kingdom to the one of his sons who can accomplish this. One of them has a foolproof plan how to do it. Unfortunately for him, it may be that no plan is foolproof enough to thwart Groo. Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Sergio Aragonés and "World's Greatest Soccer Mom" Award-winning wordsmith Mark Evanier bring you more moronic mayhem from the barbarian who made "mulch" a household word.

Kansas-born journalist David Kane never expected he would land a lucrative position at New York's Crawley News. Still, he does, and the position is all he could have hoped for until illegal phone hacking allegations by Crawley land on the backs of several New York staffers. The Big Apple isn't so glitzy anymore, even for David. A position opens in Crawley's Nigerian office when a journalist was murdered while investigating the fraudulent testing and distribution of a meningitis vaccine. Despite some of the obvious dangers associated with a foreign country, David gladly accepts his relocation to Africa. After all, Nigeria is a cultural mecca, leading the country in wealth and oil exportation. He receives his first assignment immediately: investigating a bloody coup in Central Africa. The small town boy is soon thrust into a front-line political and religious conflict. He's captured, caught in the deadly Ebola outbreak, and even has a steamy affair with his married translator-an irresistible Nigerian woman recruited by the CIA. David receives the help of a seasoned Scottish journalist, and the newbie Crawley recruit will certainly have a lot to write about-if he has better luck than his dead predecessor.

Wordplay can be seen as a genuine interface phenomenon. It can be found both in everyday communication and in literary texts, and it can fulfil a range of functions – it may be entertaining and comical, it may be used to conceal taboo, and it may influence the way in which the speaker’s character is perceived. Moreover, wordplay also reflects on language and communication: it reveals surprising alternative readings, and emphasizes the phonetic similarity of linguistic signs that also points towards relations on the level of content. Wordplay unravels characteristics of literary language in everyday communication and opens up the possibility to analyze literary texts from a linguistic perspective. The first two volumes of the series The Dynamics of Wordplay therefore aim at bringing together contributions from linguistics and literary studies, focusing on theoretical issues such as basic techniques of wordplay, and its relationship to genres and discourse traditions. These issues are complemented by a series of case studies on the use of wordplay in individual authors and specific historical contexts. The contributions offer a fresh look on the multifaceted dynamics of wordplay in different communicative settings.
