OFFICIAL SOLICITATION READS:
SELF-CONTAINED ISSUE Malcolm and Maxine have a madcap adventure fraught with peril: a day in the life of Savage Dragon.
That was bad ass! Short but sweet, here’s a fan animation of Savage Dragon as Spawn kicking some ass. Gotta love that style and flow of this. And for there to have been only a single image to start with as a basis there’s much more to this short than you’d think a single image could… spawn. I couldn’t help myself. 😉
Just one problem…. it really makes me hungry for more animated Savage Dragon content!!
Fantastic work by Daetrix! Check out his youtube channel if you can!
Drink that in will ya? Looks like Image Comics 25th anniversary (which is actually next year!) begins Dec. 28th with this issue of Shutter #25. Well that’s pretty appropriate I think. Seems like the classic image good guys are going to have a get together. I’ve heard amazing things about Shutter (full disclosure a good pal Owen Gieni is coloring it), but any Joe Keatinge book is usually worth a look. Not to mention the best damn rendition of Glory there ever was. I think this is 100% on my radar! Will you also be taking the plunge?
SPECIAL TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY BRUNCH-RELATED CROSSOVER EVENT! A story twenty-five issues in the making! Kate Kristopher comes face-to-face with the force behind every single moment in SHUTTER thus far for a showdown unlike any other, including: the creation of the universe! The end of the universe! An explanation for all existence threatens to wipe out everything that ever was and only Kate can stop it! But why doesn’t she want to? PLUS: A brunch twenty-five years in the making! Kick off 2017’s Image Comics’ 25th anniversary as founding heroes including (but not limited to!) SAVAGE DRAGON, WITCHBLADE, GLORY, and SHADOWHAWK unite with INVINCIBLE and the cast of SHUTTER for what may prove to be the most delicious crossover event of all time! Don’t you dare miss the terrifying biscuits-and-gravy secret no one will see coming! –
Whoa! Now here was a pleasant surprise! Fans have been clamoring for an additional glimpse at the expansive Savage Dragon cast and so here we go! Mighty Man #1 by Erik Larsen and long time colorist collaborator (and damn fine cartoonist as well) Nikos Koutsis!
While the con was initially the only way to get the comic it seems it’ll make it’s way to us in some form or another as Erik noted on facebook he was considering running it as back ups or possibly stand alone. I’d be down for a stand alone edition! Even if it was just digital only!
Anyway enjoy the full solicitation and this collection of interior pages and close ups I’ve found!
Betty Bradford is a six years old kiddo and she’s also Mighty Man’s alter ego! But she’s too young for the task and needs to be under surveillance, otherwise the city of Chicago would suffer the consequences! Savage Dragon’s son, Malcolm Dragon, with the members of the SOS team, (SPECIAL OPERATIONS STRIKEFORCE), are the ones responsible for the struggle. SuperPatriot, Barbaric, Ricochet, Horridus and more, as well as Mighty Man will knock your socks off!
Solicitation confirms that Savage Dragon Legacy, the latest trade collection, is slated for December release! Folks are always asking the easiest way to get in on Savage Dragon and really you could start with the latest issue (it’s always accessible), but now more than ever it’s a great time to jump on the book. Malcolm’s adventures in law enforcement really begin to pick up with this trade. Consider taking the dip!

Well well! Intrigue and mystery! While not the deepest story it seems that Savage Dragon#221 will be featuring a surprise cover. It was solicited with previously seen artwork so there’s the proof it’s happening. The solicitation states Malcolm is taking down Bellco chemicals so no real clues there either! Savage Dragon#221 is slated to hit in March and I can’t wait to see what the secret is. 😀
