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.

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!
Avid Savage Dragon reader and fellow Savage Fincast podcast host, Raven Perez, is using Kickstarter to offer a print trade collection of his popular webcomic, “Raven’s Dojo”. If you listened to Episode 9 of the Savage Fincast you heard us ranting and raving about this comic! If you haven’t checked it out before, now’s your chance to make amends and jump aboard!
This episode FINcasters Craig, Jim, and Raven tackle the long awaited Savage Dragon 181. They discuss Dragon’s political ambitions, Krylan religion, and the subtle art of making your son look like a jackass. In another installment of “What We’re Reading” the FINcasters get to talking about about The Hypernaturals, Big Bang Comics, and The Comic Book History of Comics. In Erik Larsen-Related News, the FINcasters react to Erik Larsen leaving Supreme and Frank Fosco’s new project GRONK. All this and Vanguard!
Savage Fincast Podcast – Episode 9: “The Man, The Mystery, The Drool…Josh Eichorn”
Have you ever viewed the credits page of any given issue of Savage Dragon and wondered to yourself: “Just who is this Josh Eichorn, what does he do, and why does Erik constantly make fun of him?” Well wonder no longer! The Savage FINcast gang sits down with JOSH EICHORN, the inspiration behind comic’s longest-running gag, to discover the truth about the man behind the insults. Josh shares some hilarious and insightful stories with the Fincast Gang about the early years of Savage Dragon, including tales about almost destroying original art, the truth behind the Spawn Mobile, dealing with artists on the off-shoot Highbrow comics, and more! So join Craig, Jim, and newest addition to the FINcast, Raven Perez, as they discover just who is Josh Eichorn!
The Savage Fincast Podcast is pleased to announce that our ninth episode will feature none other than the legendary, Josh Eichorn! Josh was Erik Larsen’s assistant during the early years of Savage Dragon. Josh was initially hired to help sort entries in a “create-a-character” contest that ran in the pages of Savage Dragon and would end up sticking around for a few years, typing up fan snail mail for the letters column, filling in blacks, and running out for bagels.
One fateful day, Josh asked Erik for a credit in the book. Erik obliged, but it wasn’t the credit Josh had in mind! Ever since issue six of Savage Dragon, Erik has credited Josh by coming up with a new insult for him month in and month out. Although Josh stopped working for Erik over 18 years ago, he continues to be insulted in each new issue to this day. The “Josh Eichorn credit” has become a fan-favorite gag and a unique and original feature in Savage Dragon.
Josh shared some hilarious and insightful stories with the Fincast Gang about the early years of Savage Dragon including tales about almost destroying original art, the truth behind the Spawn Mobile, dealing with artists on the off-shoot Highbrow comics, and more! Believe us, you don’t want to miss this episode! Keep your eyes peeled because the new episode will go live this week!
