Wikispaces closed down

Posted by Stefan Kalscheid in Newsno comments


The day we all dreaded has come. Well, actually it was 4 days ago but I was busy, so today I finally updated the link in the navigation to point to the temporary backup version of the beloved Savage Dragon Wiki. And while I was at it I corrected some mistakes I found so now everything should be up and working. If you find any missing images or dead links let me know.

In the meantime, I’m working on the NEW WIKI. It’s coming along nicely.

In review: Savage Dragon #233

Posted by Stefan Kalscheid in News | Reviewsno comments

Savage Dragon #233 came out in april 2018.

The cover had been solicited month before and had caused some interesting conversations among fans and interested bystanders. At that time Erik had just decided to take the book to an even more explicit direction and the media was paying close attention to what was going on in the book.

Even a cover that doesn’t really show anything stirred up some heat and I remember seeing someone post a picture of his comic shop selling this issue in black(ened) bags.

Some might recall that the cover originally looked slightly different and that Erik – at one point – even had two version up for a vote on twitter and facebook with different texts on Maxine’s shirt.

Here are the two early cover designs. As you can see Erik went with the “Bald is beautiful” version but changed the background color. He also added a little cover blurb that addresses the start of Malcolm’s and Maxines reality TV show in this issue. If you think you’ve seen something like that before: roughly 200 issue ago Erik released a variant for Savage Dragon #30 with a very similar eyecatcher…

The issue also comes with a backup feature starring Switchblade by Ben Bishop and the story actually is connected to the main feature which makes it even better.

As usual, here’s a list of articles regarding #233. Feel free to drop me a message if you dicover anything that should be added.

In review: Savage Dragon #232

Posted by Stefan Kalscheid in News | Reviewsno comments

Savage Dragon #232 came out in march 2018.

It is the second issue with Ferran Delgado as letterer and it is the second time he added letters to the cover!

The book had originally been solicited without the copy on the cover but Erik often keeps reworking his covers until the last possible minute and it seems he is aiming for a more classic comic book look.

More cool cover copy by Ferran Delgado. Something about cover makes a comic book look like a comic book. It’s weird to poke through the bundles of books I get from Image and see my book amidst all the others. It’s like–“how did this COMIC BOOK get in here?”

This also shows in the return of classic title pages. Readers may remember that Erik frequently used them during his “Savage World” storyline where he was emulating the look of classic comics of the silver and golden age.

And now titles are making a comeback and Ferran Delgado letters on them look amazing!

As of Savage Dragon #232 I’ve returned to titles and credits. I do love the way these things look but I have a bear of a time actually coming up with titles for stories.

Oh, and here is an initial design for the Wraith that Erik eventually dropped because “he was too Kirbyesque for the part”. Who knows though — maybe we’ll see a character like that down the line in some other context. He looks way to cool to disappear in some drawer.
