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.

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?

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 Guttertrash.net. 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!
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.
