Savage FINcast – Episode 12: Ant and Anniversaries… featuring Erik Larsen!

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 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!

Savage FINcast – Episode 11: Who Reads Those Gossip Rags, Anyway?!

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!

Savage FINcast – 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!
