Savage Dragon Goes Retro On Issues #254-256 Variant Covers

by Olly MacNamee

All new art, but old school trade dressing comes to Savage Dragon #254 – 256 because… well, because every one loves a taste of nostalgia, as creator and Image Comics’ partner Erik Larsen explains:

“When I was growing up—this is what comic books looked like. A few years back I did a long run on Savage Dragon with the ‘70s style trade dress and it really felt like I was making real comics at last, I’ve always loved that aesthetic. I like the balance of the banner and the circle. It just looks like comics to me. But then—I like the standard Image trade dress as well, so the thought was—why not both? Why not give readers a choice? So, yeah—it’s somewhat self-indulgent but when you can do comics your own way you can do that sort of thing.”

Savage Dragon #254 will be available on Wednesday, November 18th.

Savage Dragon #255 will be available on Wednesday, December 16th.

Savage Dragon #256 will be available on Wednesday, January 13th 2021.
