New MIGHTY MAN One-Shot

Written by Erik Larsen Drawn and colored by Nikos Koutsis Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: MIGHTY MAN #1 This was a nice surprise to see in this week’s list of new releases on Comixology this morning. Mighty Man has long been my 2nd favorite Erik Larsen creation, after Savage Dragon himself (in which I basically…

Crack Comics #63

PREVIOUSLY: Silver Streak Comics #24 Crack Comics was an ongoing anthology series published by Quality Comics, starting in 1940, until it was canceled after 62 issues. In November 2011, Image Comics published this as the third (and, to date, the last) entry in their Next Issue Project. This 52-page comic featured 9 stories of various…

Silver Streak Comics #24

PREVIOUSLY: Fantastic Comics #24 Silver Streak Comics was first published in 1939 by Lev Gleason Publications, and lasted 23 issues. In December 2009, Image Comics released this one-shot 24th issue as the 2nd installment in their Next Issue Project. This is a shorter issue (30 pages) with 5 stories. 1) DAREDEVIL Written and drawn by…

Fantastic Comics #24

This comic was the first in series called The Next Issue Project, put together by Erik Larsen and published by Image Comics. The idea is that each issue would be an over-sized anthology, where various writers and artists would create new stories using old obscure comic-book characters, whose copyrights had expired and therefor were now…

SUPREME #68 by Erik Larsen

As I said in my reviews of the first 40 issues of SUPREME, the biggest problem the book suffered from was a lack of a consistent creative team to guide it. The book went through multiple writers and artist during this run, until Alan Moore took over, but he rewrote the old character. So I…

SUPREME #67 by Erik Larsen

The previous issue ended with the surprising appearance of Omni-Man. I assume this was done as a sort of wink towards Alan Moore’s run on this title. In Moore’s run, SUPREME was a comic-book artist in his secret identity, drawing the adventures of a fictional superhero called Omniman for Dazzle Comics. In one issue, Omniman…

SUPREME #66 by Erik Larsen

As I stated in the last issue, the timeline of these events, and when they are supposed to be taking place, is a little out of wack. It starts to be addressed here somewhat, as we see Ethan and Diana walking the street, where Ethan realizes that the latest revision must have occurred around them.…

SUPREME #65 by Erik Larsen

Picking right up from the previous issue we open with the last remaining survivors of The Supremacy: Sister Supreme (the Black woman), “Original Supreme” (from 1920), 50’s Supreme (who, for some reason, is still stuck with a Lion’s head), Squeak The Supremouse, and Alan Moore’s Supreme (hereafter to be referred to as Ethan Crane) .…

SUPREME #64 by Erik Larsen

I’m just going to start off with this here, because I don’t want to have to post this image in all my reviews. So be forewarned now, if you haven’t read Erik Larsen’s run on Supreme, just go ahead and do so now, because I’m going to be spoiling the frack out of it in…

SUPREME #63 by Alan Moore and Erik Larsen

When Awesome Comics closed shop in early 2000, one of the greatest tragedies was that it left Alan Moore’s Supreme incomplete. Although the final issue that saw print, SUPREME: THE RETURN #6, was satisfying enough, there were still some open plot threads in the series, specifically whatever Darius Dax was up to, which were still…

Mighty Man #1

Written by Gary Carlson and Erik Larsen Drawn and colored by Mark Englert Published by Image Comics This is a comic that I didn’t even know existed until it popped up in my “recommended for you” list on Amazon. This is character created by Erik Larsen that originally appeared in the early issues of his…

Savage Dragon #201

Written and drawn by Erik Larsen Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: Savage Dragon #200 Yes, I was greatly disappointed by a certain development in the previous issue, which colored my ability to enjoy it. But I loved the 7 issues before that, so I wasn’t quite ready to give up on this title yet. As…

Savage Dragon #200

Written and drawn by Erik Larsen Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: Savage Dragon #199 Well, I started picking up this title again last Feb. with Savage Dragon #193 and have been re-hooked on it ever since. Malcolm has made a successful replacement leading man And now Erik Larsen joins Todd McFarlane as having the 2nd…

SAVAGE DRAGON #199

Writer and artist: Erik Larsen Letterer: Rus Wooton Colors: Nikos Koutis Publisher: Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: SAVAGE DRAGON #198 Yes, I’m 5 days late on this, sorry. Anyway, as per last issue, Malcolm had fallen underground where there lives a subterranean race of beings called Demonoids, which are kinda hard to describe. So here’s a non-spoilery…

SAVAGE DRAGON #198

Writer and artist: Erik Larsen Letterer: Rus Wooton Colors: Nikos Koutis Publisher: Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: SAVAGE DRAGON #197 First, yes this review is several weeks late, but better late than never, right? And you may or may not have noticed that I’ve now placed these reviews in their own separate category, as opposed to placing…

SAVAGE DRAGON #197

Writer and artist: Erik Larsen Letterer: Chris Eliopoulos Colors: Nikos Koutis Publisher: Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: SAVAGE DRAGON #196 Been a busy week, so I’m a few days late reviewing this issue, which came out last Wednesday. I’m going to take advantage of these extra days and assume that most fans of the series have already…

SAVAGE DRAGON #196

Writer and artist: Erik Larsen Letterer: Chris Eliopoulos Colors: Nikos Koutis Publisher: Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: SAVAGE DRAGON #195 And here we have the latest issue of my favorite Black (okay, half-Black, but that’s good enough for me) teenage superhero (okay, he’s not technically a “superhero”, either…), Malcolm Dragon. Dang, I don’t know what it is…

SAVAGE DRAGON #195

Writer and artist: Erik Larsen Publisher: Image Comics Previously: SAVAGE DRAGON #194 Just read this latest issue and, dang, Erik Larsen sure seems to like putting my new favorite teenage (half-)Black superhero, Malcolm Dragon, through the ringer. In these three issues since Malcolm officially became the lead character, the poor kid barely has had time…

SAVAGE DRAGON #194

Writer/Artist: Erik Larsen Publisher: Image Comics Previously: SAVAGE DRAGON #193 This is a pretty action-packed issue, which fits the new status quo of Malcolm Dragon’s life. He’s trying his best to support himself (by working “off the books” for the police, catching super freaks) and go to school, but he can barely catch his breath…

SAVAGE DRAGON #193

Writer/Artist: Erik Larsen Publisher: Image Comics I’ll admit, I was an original Image kid. When Image Comics debuted back in the 90’s, I bought every single comic-book they published for several years. It didn’t matter if I was even interested in comic or not, if it had that Image “i” on the cover, I bought…
