PORTLAND, Ore. 10/21/2020 — Image Comics partner and CFO Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon series will feature three 70s style retro variants for the upcoming issues #254-256 hitting shelves in November, December, and January respectively.
“When I was growing up—this is what comic books looked like. A few years back I did a long run on Savage Dragon with the ‘70s style trade dress and it really felt like I was making real comics at last,” said Larsen. “I’ve always loved that aesthetic. I like the balance of the banner and the circle. It just looks like comics to me. But then—I like the standard Image trade dress as well, so the thought was—why not both? Why not give readers a choice? So, yeah—it’s somewhat self-indulgent but when you can do comics your own way you can do that sort of thing.”
In Savage Dragon #254, Malcolm Dragon is overwhelmed by the superior firepower of the newly assembled and fully operational Vicious Circle, and a dark cloud falls over the city of Toronto. Meanwhile, Paul Dragon tries to put together the pieces of his shattered past. Comes with our highest possible recommendation.
