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!
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.
Cory Hamcher, artist of Supreme (written by Erik Larsen) posted a new image of the yet unnamed son of Khrome, a soon-to-be villain within the book’s pages. We have previously seen Larsen’s rendition of the son of Khrome on the upcoming cover to Supreme #68. Now we get to see Hamcher’s version from the interiors:
Tom Scioli recently published what looks like a mock Supreme cover on his Facebook account (see image below). Scioli’s comments about the illustration indicate that he is making a pitch to Liefeld to take over the book after Larsen exits. Or…is the image from one of the back-up tales in the giant-sized issue #68 (Larsen’s final issue)?
Tom Sciloi’s description of the illustration:
“I’ve been thinking about Supreme. Here’s a quick drawing I did of Ethan Crane in an exo-suit made of repurposed Suprematon parts vs. Mean Supreme, with Optilux in a crystal skull spaceship.”
A Commentor Stated:
“Would love to see you do Supreme now! Have you contacted the relevant people about it?”
Tom Sciloi replied:
“Yes. It’s been a long time since I chased a work-for-hire job, but I’m feeling a pull towards the character. Alan Moore’s run was a formative comic for me.”
Pretty sweet interview with Erik over at CBR. He talks about the future in all sorts of ways: things he’s got planned for issue 200 of Savage Dragon; ending Supreme; and most intriguing, acquiring a new character from another artist. We’re super convinced that it’s ANT… but wildly speculate for yourself!
