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!
Podcast description from the website: Much like our favorite comic on the planet, the Savage FINcast is running dangerously late. Sorry ’bout that! This episode, Adam, Craig, Jim, and Raven review Savage Dragon 182 and experience a kind of zen euphoria while doing so (not as disgusting as it sounds). Graveyards! Cults! High school embarrassment! OVERLORD! This one’s got it all! In Erik Larsen-related news, the FINcasters react to the worst kept secret ever, and discuss possible creator replacements for Supreme. All this and Boom Pow Tacos! Er… we mean Vanguard!
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.”
