Savage Dragon

 The savage dragon comic books are just my favourite comic books of all time, it's the art of Erik Larsen and his writing that brings this comic book together and I've been a fan of the book since it came out in 1992 with the three part mini series that introduced us to the Dragon.

The Savage Dragon was part of a series of comic book creators who broke away from mainstream comic companies for awhile to establish their own creations and they formed Image comics, an independent company that would see a thriving place for up and coming comic book artists and writers even today.

And the story involves a super powered freak called the Dragon, his real name is not known as he was found in a burning field with no memory of who he was or where he came from, he later became a cop for the chicago police force, taking down other super powered villains, aswell as getting beaten up quite badly a few times along the way, he later quit the force and headed up a team of super powered freaks to help fight crime as the viscious circle and other villains were taking over the city.

The unfolding story of the dragon has been a rollercoaster of a ride and the humourous wit of Eriks writing together with his outstanding artwork make this a great read, particularly as the dragon seems like he is becoming more and more invunerable although he can die, he has come pretty close to dying.

This is one comic I would love to see as a film, like they have done with Hellboy, as the stories and mad cap villains would make it a memorable film.

The comic itself has lots of villains and heroes and everyone seems expendable as you don't know who Erik will kill off and that to me is how comics should be, if a character dies in a comic they should stay dead, ot like Superman, were he got killed by Doomsday and he came back a bit later with longer hair...I mean what's that all about!!?

What also is quite amazing is that the original creator has been writing and drawing this book since day one and still continues to do so and Erik has been writing and editing other comic books whilst doing so, so that in itself is a huge accomplishment as most creators these days get bored and want to do other things, like Jim Lee and Todd McFarlane ( who are very good business men I might add!!)

Savage dragon is one comic book that I never miss, although I missed one issue once and I nearly had a panic attack (yes over a comic book how sad!!) so I since order it online and get it delivered.

Go Dragon!

      Cheers there Bill!

      I still have some of the first runs of most of the image comics, particularly Spawn and Savage dragon and I still collect them now, although some of the others have since just ended or been simple mini series, but I always try and continue to buy new comics delivered regularly to my door.

      I'll have to check out the Sword...thanks!

      Cheers there Ixxy.

      It seems I spellcheck when the spirit of the spell check possesses me and that's obviously never happened yet!!

      I see these hubpages as little embryos, I can change and add to at any time...

      Superman in the recent film just seemed like a dick...so arrogant, I mean when he got shot in the eye, he could have gone "oh I say"or "eye eye!"

      Love The Mask, should have done a direct sequel, instead of that Son Of Mask garbage!!

      "as he was found in a burning field with no memory of who he was or where he came from"

      Stupid dragon super heros, getting drunk and PO'ed, lighting innocent fields on fire. ;)

      "ot like Superman, were he got killed by Doomsday and he came back a bit later with longer hair...I mean what's that all about!!?"

      Missing an "n" somewhere. =P As I recall, there was Bizarro land and all that BS. Actually, you might like if you've not seen...

      http://www.superdickery.com Superman's just a dick, ya know? Not even death can beat this prick.

      One last thing..

      " invunerable although he can die, he has come pretty close to dying." That sentence, to me, seems like it should be re-worded a bit. Just my opinion.

      Great work though, can tell you put a lot of effort into this. =) I love all your stuff! And I, too, love comics. Who can forget Image and The Mask?!
