Joe Keatinge Discusses his Love of Savage Dragon

harry interview finalLong time “Fin-addict” and professional comic book writer, Joe Keatinge (writer and creator of Image Comic’s Hell Yeah, editor or the Eisner-award winning Popgun anthology, writer of the critically acclaimed Glory series from Extreme Studios, and writer of the upcoming Marvel Knight’s Hulk among other things!), was recently interviewed by the Pullist blog. Keatinge names Savage Dragon as his favorite superhero and goes on to explain why. Here’s an excerpt of the interview:

Who’s your favorite superhero and why?

Savage Dragon. No contest. I’ve been reading that series on a (kind of sometimes mostly) monthly basis since the first issue dropped in 1992. The series itself is one of the most disgustingly under appreciated cartooning achievements in the last twenty years or so. The fact Larsen doesn’t get enough credit for not just the sheer amount of work, but the constant experimentation going on is really a damn shame…

Savage Fincast Podcast – Episode 12: “Ant and Anniversaries” feat. Erik Larsen!

Podcast description from the website: Where does the time go? 365…ish days ago a band of intrepid Savage Dragon fans set out on a mission to talk about their favorite comic and post the results on the internet. They said they were crazy, that it couldn’t work. But… THEY. WERE. WRONG.

The Savage FINcast is one years old this month, with 14 episodes and 6 creator interviews to show for it. Not bad for a show that primarily focuses on one comic book title, eh? To celebrate their one year anniversary, Craig, Jim, and Raven reflect on old times from long ago; from the high points to the low. Then Erik Larsen returns to talk about his purchase of Mario Gully’s Ant character, the status of the Supreme comic, what Kickstarter might mean for comic creators, and what the future holds for Savage Dragon as it enters its 20th year of publication!

Being our big anniversary the team at the Savage FINcast would like to thank the following people; Eric Shonborn for advice about podcast recording techniques and sorting out hosting for the Savage FINcast. Couldn’t have done it without you buddy. Check his podcast out at Also a shout-out to the gang over at The Legion of Substitute Podcasters for the inspiration on how to conduct a podcast about a single comic franchise. We would also like to thank Chris Partin and the guys at Image Addiction for including us in their family. And of course, a big thanks to all our listeners out there in cyberlandspace. You make it all worth it!
