Gröss graduated in 1969 from the Central Academy of Commercial Art in Cincinnati, Ohio.

His entry into the comics world came with his creation of a character called Murciélaga, the She-Bat.
In 1991, comic book artist Russ Manning awarded him with the Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award. That award helped to launch his career. Starting in 2017 and continuing through the Trump presidency, he also produced a series of satirical political cartoons that criticized Donald Trump.
