    Default Savage Dragon.

    Hey,

    I'm a bit bummed to see so little love for one of Image Comic's longest running series: Savage Dragon.

    With Invincible ending, it's one of the last classic superhero books from Image. Kirkman has often cited this as (one of) his favorite books and one of the biggest influences on his work. I'm always surprised to hear people don't even know it's still coming out. How do you not know about a book that's into triple-diggits?

    Let me tell you: It is indeed still coming out. Monthly. And it just celebrated it's 25th anniversary. The book is still going strong. It's currently heading into a whole new direction and it's a great jumping on point for new readers (although Erik always makes sure to get new readers up to speed).

    So, who's reading the book? Let's hear from you fellow finheads!

    And for all those who are interested in checking it out: www.savagedragon.com just got a relaunch and provides interesting previews, reviews and insights into the book.

    Good to hear that the site is online again. I will check it out.

    Savage Dragon is one of the last, if not the last UNPREDICTABLE superhero book out there. I mean, you know that no corporate Superhero is in danger, no one stays dead forever and you will see your hero always back to the way it was, after they changed him or her into something else. Not so with Savage Dragon. Anything can happen here!

    And its written in real time, that means characters age!!

    Its still a blast after all these years.

    Those are little things, but boy, this is the good stuff about comics. Even though I did read Image "superhero" comics in the '90s (WildC.A.T.S, Spawn etc.), I never gave Savage Dragon a proper try. I think you've just convinced me.

    Do it, its fun.

    Mind, SD started with a 5 issue mini series, before it returned to a new number 1 and didnt renumber to this day.

    Awesome. Like I said, it's currently a good time to jump onboard. If you want to read the whole thing from the beginning the easiest and cheapest way are the black&white archive collections. There are a lot of color trades as well but unfortunately there are a couple of issues that have never been collected.

    I read it every issue. Erik is so nice too, really engages with his fans. Follow him on Facebook to see some interesting behind the scenes info about decisions he makes.

    Regarding Invincible ending (sadly) I was reading an article recently that said Astro City is the longest running creator owned series still being published and I was like umm no
