Here’s a video review for Savage Dragon #207! This fellow actually reviews Savage Dragon FAIRLY regularly so this is definitely worth checking out. I may disagree about the envelope pushing because I feel this kind of thing is what really separates a creator owned title from a corporate comic, but anyone spreading the word about our favorite funny book is definitely worth highlighting in my mind! Give it a watch:
Podcast description from the website: Prison rules apply on this episode of the Savage FINcast as Craig, Jim, and Raven sit down to review Savage Dragon 189! Dragon enters a new phase of his life as he finds himself in the slammer along with all the Vicious Circle goons he once put away. As you can probably guess, the inmates are not about to make him feel welcome! Intense action follows which begs the question– who is locked up with who? Meanwhile, Ronald Winston Urass plans to make Dragon’s time in prison a groundhog day of never ending punishment! I don’t think we’d be lying if we said this was most brutal issue of Savage Dragon yet!

Unleash the Fanboy, a news website dedicated to comics, movies, and gaming; gave the most recent issue of Savage Dragon a glowing review with 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Excerpts from the review:
“After some large shake-ups in the Savage Dragon universe, Savage Dragon #182 begins a new arc, offering a much tighter story that looks to be showing some key character developments. Well written and full of charm, this is a surprisingly enjoyable issue of Savage Dragon. I say “surprisingly” enjoyable because the titular Dragon does not make an appearance…”
“…All in all, this is a great read and a good start to a new arc. With what promises to a much more localized storyline, this change in pace may just be what Savage Dragonneeds right now.”
Comic Book Resources‘ columnist, Augie De Blieck, Jr., reviewed Savage Dragon #176, which hit stands today. He gives the issue four out of five stars.
“Savage Dragon” #176 is a great jumping-on point for potential new readers. It’s a relatively simple done-in-one issue, in which young Malcolm Dragon deals with a bully at school, but it’s entertaining and tense all the while.”
