Welcome to the Savage FINcast Retro! A new review series where we of the Savage FINcast finally go back to the 90s to review classic issues of Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon in chronological order from the beginning! This episode Craig, Jim, & Raven take a look at the finale issue of the original Savage Dragon mini-series to witness Dragon’s first throwdown with the wider Image Comics Universe. Then they take a look at Dragon’s first big indie comic crossover one-shot, as Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon collides with Don Simpson’s Megaton Man in The Savage Dragon vs The Savage Megaton Man. Where we meet the Johnny Redbeard’s Nix Men and the creature Slagg Heap as Larsen and Simpson trade off on art duties in a clash of not only characters, but art styles.
All this as well as Image Zero, and just what were the differences between the original Savage Dragon mini-series and its first collected edition?
