    Yep, i know. I read all issues and spin offs. But the sex thing was always a minor thing, now its getting a hughe push. Though, the story or anything else does not suffer from it...

    wikispaces.com is closing soon.

    Is the information going to be moved?

    wikia.com/fandom would be a good place.

    I don't know if any of the guys from the Wiki are members of this forum, but I am in contact with them and we are looking into solutions for the problem. At this point we are thinking about making the Wiki part of the official website, which I am running.

    So, yeah, we are aware that wikispaces is closing and it will be moved somewhere else, we just don't know how and where exactly.

    So--Malcolm moved up to Canada immediately following your departure and Trump hasn't been mentioned since.

    No, wait--he's mentioned by a villain in #232 which is out this week (spoilers) but he has not been a presence to speak of. In any case--if that was your beef--you picked a fine time to bug out!

    I am another big fan of Savage Dragon who will no longer purchase your comic as long as you are including the kind of graphic sexuality as depicted in #228. I was willing to accept it as a one off experiment on your part, until I read #230 and you had the Dimension X trio running around naked for no storytelling purpose that I can see. And topped off with a full-frontal splash page. Your book used to be about superhero fights and adventure with the occasional naughty bits thrown in; I feel like now it's mostly about the sex with occasional nods to superheroes. The idea that Dragon has always had this stuff is completely disingenuous: you've never drawn this kind of explicit material before.

    It's a shame, because like I said, I really like your superhero stuff and want to support it. I also get the idea that it's your book and you'll do what you want; that's not the issue here. Just because you can do a thing doesn't mean you should, or that it's good for the story. I'm not asking you to pander to my every whim as a reader here; I'm asking you not to put this content in that is utterly repellent and is distracting from the story you want to tell. And at the end of the day, don't you want people to buy your book?
    People do buy my book and increasingly I'm hearing from new readers who are checking out the series for the first time. Whenever I do something that gets readers talking--they talk--and readers decide to check out the book and see what all the fuss is about.

    The book isn't becoming a porn book.

    No more than it became a horror book when Debbie crawled out of her grave or became a sci-fi book when Dragon was in space or became a romance book when Dragon was dating Jennifer or became a teenage angst book when Malcolm was in high school. I experiment--I try out different things and it goes from being one kind of book to another. If you're looking for a predictable book that will be the same for years on end--Savage Dragon may not be the book for you. If you're looking for something unpredictable--where anything could happen on the next page--this might be right up your alley.

    But you do what you want to do.

    I just read 230 and 231. I had to read 230 for free because it didnt ship in my country. The Nazi content is not allowed to import here, so no chance...231 shipped regulary.

    I like the parts in Dimension X the most. Naked babes running around and fighting, thats my kind of fun

    The cliffhanger was a wtf moment...

    At the end of the month i will visit the USA (NY) and hunt down the comic shops for 230.

    I love the frenetic look of the art. The action scenes are awesome, too. I commend Mr. Larsen for going with the real-time thing, as well. I'm new to the book, enjoying it so far.
    Read my free superhero webcomic, The Ill!

    Honestly bro, it's not really a porn issue. It's just an issue that features a sex scene. Yes, it was an intense scene. But is there a heterosexual male alive who has never fantasized about shooting a load so strong it causes the hot chick he's banging to knock against the wall, have the cum drip in her mouth, and then she looks you in the eye and says, "I've never been handled like that? That's the best sex I've ever had."

    But really, it wasn't merely the sex act. It was the shot of sex in general. In one Catwoman issue, they showed Batman and Catwoman having foreplay and afterglow. No sex or nudity. Just foreplay and afterglow. Man, do I remember a bunch of adult male fans past 30 throwing a hissyfit over that on comic book forums. They were saying things like, "We all know Batman and Catwoman have sex. But to be that explicit kills our childhood fantasy of a pure superhero."

    Many readers feel that superhero comics can be as violent as possible but any explicit hint of sex is wrong.

    Funny that you think that i am flying or living in Berlin. There are more citys in Germany than that , even if my country is the size of your hometown

    And i am not just traveling for only one SD 230, but for 3!!! Buddys of mine are also looking for it. So the journey is even more worthwhile...

    Yeah, I know I was just kidding. Actually in Erik's long run there have been many sex scenes they just haven't included seminal fluid.
