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!
Savage Fincast Podcast – Episode 8: “Reality Bites”
“BRAKKA-BA-DOOM!” In case you don’t know, that’s the sound of two super-humans colliding. It’s also the sound of ANOTHER SAVAGE FINCAST COMING AT’CHA! Craig and Jim are back again to talk about the reality warping events of SUPREME 66! After that, Jim takes a journey down memory lane to reexamine his first issue of Savage Dragon in a Retro Review of Savage Dragon 90!
The Savage Fincast Podcast is pleased to announce that our seventh episode will feature artist extrodinaire, Cory Hamscher! As you probably know, Cory is working off of Erik Larsen’s rough layouts to pencil and ink Extreme Studio’s Supreme from Image Comics. Hamscher’s portfolio encompasses over a decade of work illustrating comic books for Marvel, Image, Devil’s Due, Chaos and Avatar Press. Cory’s career highlights include inking G.I. Joe (including the first G.I. Joe vs Transformers miniseries), illustrating a bunch of the Marvel Adventure titles, and inking titles featuring the X-men, Hulk, and the Avengers. Savage Dragon fans know him from his Thor back up story in Savage Dragon #150.
The gang from the Savage Fincast will be talking to Hamscher about how he broke into the field, his past work, how he connected with Erik Larsen and eventually landed the gig as artist of Supreme, and his thoughts on the Supreme series. In addition to having Cory Hamscher on the show, the Fincasters will be conducting their usual review of the most recent Savage Dragon issue (#180), discussing Larsen-related news, and chatting about anything else that tickles their fancy!
You don’t want to miss this one! Whip out your new Supreme and Savage Dragon comics and listen along as we go through the nitty-gritty details of the most trivial things in our favorite funny-mags as only the most obsessed fan could! Stay tuned! The episode will go live later this week!
Savage Fincast – Episode 6: “Savage Worlds & Mean Supremes”
