Savage Dragon #202 Review

For a series that’s had some serious ups and downs lately, Savage Dragon #202 # is a dissapointing drop back to the standards of excitement seen in the 200th special. I see what it’s trying to do at points, but there are also a few major thinks that simply don’t fit right. In fact, it […]

Savage Dragon #201 Review

Following a questionable 200th issue, Savage Dragon #201 seems to split itself into two different directions. On one hand, we still have the action and excitement the fast-paced series is known for yet, on the other, we still have a large amount of unnessary teenage drama and fantasty. The official description from Image: Following the […]

Savage Dragon #200 Review

How do you celebrate an 200th issue? Because I bet that’s a better idea than what Savage Dragon #200 has done. Before I get into the meat and bones of this downright dissapointing issue, I should throw up a fairly big spoiler warning. Okay… First, the official description from Image: Savage Dragon is out of […]

Savage Dragon #199 Review

For a series that’s bounced between so-so and okay (there’s a difference, trust me), Savage Dragon #199 needs to pull something out from under its sleeve if it wants to do something special in time for the 200th issue. So, what does it manage to acomplish, if anything? The official description from Image: COUNTDOWN TO […]

Savage Dragon #198 Review

After wrapping up last issue’s arc, Savage Dragon #198 quickly jumps into more action and drama. The pacing may be a little off, but it certainly doesn’t waste time on any dull moments… The official description from Image: Malcolm Dragon faces the Uncanny Ant-Menaces! The Ant Queen and her deadly Ant Men invade the surface […]

Savage Dragon #197 Review

When the last issue ends on a fairly decent cliff hanger, a comic like Savage Dragon #197 has a lot to live up to, or at least open up to something action packed and explosive. Savage Dragon, however, might be a little in the middle. The official description from Image: Malcolm Dragon is transformed into […]

Savage Dragon #196 Review

So, Savage Dragon #196 continues to believe in the title’s “bold new direction”. Although it has new elements, it hasn’t been convincing so far, so is this the issue to seal the deal? The official description from Image comics: SAVAGE DRAGON: THE NEXT GENERATION! Strange things are going on in Chicago’s notorious Danger Zone. The […]

Savage Dragon #194 Review

Savage Dragon #194 is pretty much what we’ve come to expect by now. Depending on your views on the series of late, that may be very good or very bad… The official description from Image: SAVAGE DRAGON: THE NEXT GENERATION! Malcolm Dragon has big shoes to fill. His father saved the world on a few […]

6 Image Comics That Deserve Movies

As a youngster when Image Comics appeared on the scene they blew me away with their eye catching art and more explicit violence and sexuality. It didn’t take long for the shock to wear off. Some of their titles I had been so blown away by just didn’t hold up very well. As a reader […]

Savage Dragon #193 Review

If you look at the front cover, Savage Dragon #193 promises a “bold new direction”. That’s a big claim to make, so can Savage Dragon #193 keep its promise? The official description from Image: A NEW BEGINNING! It’s the ultimate jumping on point for new readers and a bold new beginning as Malcolm Dragon takes […]

Savage Dragon #191 Review

Savage Dragon #191 offers a dichotomy of sorts.. it bounces between over the top and personal, large and small scales and, well, most things, actually. It’s got potential, but it has it got focus and clarity? The official description from Image: “JAILBREAK!”As hundreds of inmates riot in an effort to escape from Stronghold Penitentiary, Dragon […]

Savage Dragon #190 Review

Savage Dragon #190 doesn’t throw too many surprises and curve balls at the reader, which may or may not please you. Still, as slow issues go, it still has plenty to offer. The official description from Image: The countdown to the biggest and most significant change for SAVAGE DRAGON continues as Dragon faces Mako in […]

Savage Dragon #189 Review

Savage Dragon #189 is another odd issue that teases a lot but, underneath, actually has a few strong elements going for it. That said, with a lot of the Savage Dragon universe, it can often feel tangled and lost within it’s own plot lines. The official description from Image: THE COUNTDOWN TO THE SINGLE BIGGEST […]

Savage Dragon #188 Review

Savage Dragon #188 is a curious issue. It offers enough to warrant picking up, but its difficult to summarize in the long-term when comparing it to the rest of the series. The official description from IDW: The Claw returns! the legendary villain from the Golden Age of comics strikes again! Malcolm Dragon joins forces with […]

Savage Dragon #187 Review

Where as the last issue focused on more personal developments, this issue jumps between tension and action, ultimately offering very little. Whilst long time fans will no doubt be keen, Savage Dragon #187 has a lot of flaws that might ultimately prove to unforgivable. The official description from Image: “THE VICIOUS CIRCLE RISING” A glimpse […]

Savage Dragon #186 Review

Savage Dragon #186 certainly has a lot going for it. This is one of its greatest strengths but also one of its biggest disappointments. There are many developments in these pages, but a lot harkens back to older issues and arcs. Is this perhaps too much for one issue? The official description from Image: “THE […]

Savage Dragon #185

A drama-heavy issue, Savage Dragon #185 isn’t the most exciting or visually appealing of issues. But what it lacks in explosive content, it arguably makes up for by going back to some Savage Dragon’s roots and key themes; some issues get lost in the greater universal setting, after all. The official description from Image: “THE […]

Savage Dragon #184 Review

A dialogue heavy issue, Savage Dragon #184 deals with all the repercussions of previous issues. This is easy enough to pick up through repetitive comments, but it none the less has very little impact by its self. The official description from Image: “THE TRIAL OF SAVAGE DRAGON” When he was Emperor Kurr, Savage Dragon came […]

Savage Dragon #182 Review

After some large shake-ups in the Savage Dragon universe, Savage Dragon #182 begins a new arc, offering a much tighter story that looks to be showing some key character developments. Well written and full of charm, this is a surprisingly enjoyable issue of Savage Dragon. I say “surprisingly” enjoyable because the titular dragon does not […]

Savage Dragon #181 Review

Savage Dragon #181 follows the result of previous events. Yet,  even after the recent devastation, its never that quiet of peaceful in the world of Savage Dragon. First, the official description from Image: “LO, THERE SHALL COME…AN ENDING!” The invasion is over…at a price. The stunning aftermath. Needless to say, there was a lot of […]
