The Savage Fincast Podcast is pleased to announce that our 15th episode will feature comic creator, Michel Fiffe! Savage Dragon fans will recognize Michel as the editor of, and contributor to, the “Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies” series of back up stories that were featured in Savage Dragon from issue #160 to #171 and later collected as a trade with bonus stories. In addition, Michel is known for his critically acclaimed “Zegas” comic series and new monthly “COPRA” superhero comic.
Fiffe’s self-released “COPRA” comic has drawn a fair amount of buzz in the industry with multiple feature articles in Comic Book Resources, Comics Alliance, and Bleeding Cool; as well as rave reviews among the comics community in general. Equally impressive is the fact that Fiffe is a one-man army that writes, draws, colors, letters, and distributes the comic.
Join the Fincast Gang as we discuss Fiffe’s love of Savage Dragon, the creation of the Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies collection, the love of the print medium, and the development of his self-published comics. You don’t want to miss this episode! Keep your eyes peeled for it to be released shortly! In the meantime, check out what Michel’s up to and buy his comics, at his website: www.michelfiffe.com.

Erik Larsen recently posted the cover to Savage Dragon #188 on his Facebook page. Larsen commented:
“Savage Dragon #188–another retro cover–not sure yet if I’ll beat it up like some previous retro covers.”
The logo used is in the same font as the golden-age Silver Streak comics and features the Claw, Daredevil, and Malcolm Dragon.
UPDATED: Erik posted a second version that gives the appearance of beat-up and aged golden-age comic. See below.

Podcast description from the website: The Savage FINcast takes a break this episode to usher in the first (and final) episode of THE SAVAGE SUPREMECAST! It’s a double dose of Supreme this episode as Craig, Jim, and Raven give Erik Larsen and Cory Hamscher’s run a send off in a grand manner by reviewing the final two issues back-to-back! Who is the Super-Hero Champion of the World? Will the depowered Supremes regain their powers? What really happened to the Supremacy? Why are ducks so awesome? So many questions, but so little time! *yeek*

Cory Hamscher recently announced on his Facebook account that he wrapped up his stint on Supreme:
“Avengers Academy is wrapped. Supreme is wrapped. Con season is over.”
Corey also added the following image, presumably from Supreme #67:
Additionally, Erik Larsen posted the following on his Facebook account today, November 8th:
“After much consideration and a loss of forward momentum I’ve decided to keep Supreme 68 as a normal-sized issue after all. I’m flying solo. I’m writing, pencilling and inking Supreme 68. Chris Eliopoulos is lettering and it’s Steve Oliff on colors, as usual. This is my swan song.”
So in conlusion, it looks like Corey has wrapped up the art on Supreme #67 and Erik will be finishing up his run on the series with complete art chores on a normal-sized Supreme #68.
