SAVAGE DRAGON #193 kicks off a bold new era as Malcolm Dragon steps into his father’s giant shoes and becomes the official star of the book! Craig, Jim, and Raven weigh in on how accessible and enticing this “first” issue might be for new readers, and how long time readers, such as themselves, are acclimating to the new status quo. In addition, the gang talks about their challenge to get issue 193 into the hands of some first-time Savage Dragon readers, both regular comic reader and non-readers alike. The insightful new-reader reactions brought to light some points that are sure to keep the conversation going on the message boards! So sit back, relax, and brace yourself for the most unexpected Savage FINcast yet!

Not for nothing, but some food for thought for your buddy who thinks Malcolm is a “weigh station,” Wally West was “the one success story” in your list of replacement heroes…but he’s also the only one of the characters you mentioned who was actually intended to stick around long-term. The Four Supermen, Bucky-Cap and all the rest were always a storytelling device with a beginning, middle and end. That we’re talking about them ten or twenty years later tells me they’re actually fairly successful in that.
