SKU: 12523 Category:


Savage Dragon is an ongoing American comic book series created by Erik Larsen, published by Image Comics and taking place in the Image Universe. The comic features the adventures of a superheroic police officer named the Dragon. The character first appeared as Dragon in Graphic Fantasy #1 and first appeared as the “Savage Dragon” in Megaton #3. The Dragon is a large, finned, green-skinned humanoid whose powers include super-strength and an advanced healing factor. He is also an amnesiac: his earliest memory is awakening in a burning field in Chicago, Illinois. Thus, for most of the series, the origins of his powers and appearance are a mystery to readers. At the beginning of the series, he becomes a police officer and battles the mutant criminal “superfreaks” that terrorize Chicago. Savage Dragon is the only one of the original Image Comics titles that is still written and drawn by its creator, for which Larsen has been lauded.1Savage Dragon is the longest running American full-color comic book to feature a single artist/writer. The character was also adapted into an animated series, which ran for two seasons (26 episodes) on the USA Network beginning in 1995. Savage Dragon has been considered as one of the greatest comic book characters by Wizard magazine and one of the greatest comic book heroes of all time by IGN.
