Artist, Chris Burnham (Officer Downe, Nameless, Nixon’s Pals, and Batman Incorporated) is drawing a Mr. Glum backup story for issue 200 of Savage Dragon. Burnham recently published a few panels (below) of the story on Twitter with the following quote:
“I hope the buzz about Savage Dragon #199 is getting you super stoked for my Mr. Glum backup story in #200! Ka-ZAPPO!”
Erik Larsen recently posted the image below to his Facebook page announcing:
Inking Herb Trimpe! The physical pencils were lost in the mail so I had to print out these onto boards but still–pretty awesome.
Larsen also made a few comments related to the collaboration:
This stuff FEELS like Trimpe of old to me. I know he made an effort to get modern in the ’90s which fell a bit flat. This isn’t that.
Issue 200 is another monster sized 100-pager and Herb and I are trading off backup stories. I pencilled one that he’s inking and he’s pencilled one that I’m inking.
The bad news part of this story is that the pencilled pages Herb Trimpe was sending me to ink were lost in the mail. The good news is that he made copies. I spent much of today cutting paper, turning JPEGs to bluelines, ruling borders and printing out those pages onto art boards. Now, at last–I’m inking! Hopefully, Herb doesn’t have such problems inking the pencilled pages of mine that I sent to him.
Larsen recently posted the cover to Savage Dragon #203 of his Facebook page. The solicitation description has not been released, but as you can see, fan-favorites, Neutron Bob and the Deadly Duo, will be featured!
