(6/93) Savage Dragon #0, 1/2, 1-169, 172-208.*******Have the #31 "God is good" variant, #136 4th printing variant of the Barack Obama cover, #148 FCBD ed.*******Savage Dragon (1993), by Erik Larsen. The fact that Larsen is drawing this is great, because we get to see it the way he sees it, but for me, this book is all about the writing. It's in "real time" - i.e. 30 days for us is 30 days for the book. Larsen has had to play with that here and there, but seeing characters that actually grow old, get fat, die, retire, and get replaced is awesome. Savage Dragon is doing what soap operas have always done with their casts, and what comics should do. If you're reading Robert Kirkman's Invincible, you SHOULD BE reading Erik Larsen's Savage Dragon, because Kirkman freely admits that he stole all his writing tricks from Larsen. There are too many good things to say about this book!
Previews. Most months, I don't order anything from this, but I love looking at it to see what all is coming out.
Marvel Previews. I still think it's ridiculous that they aren't in the main catalog, but same thing here- I like seeing what's coming out, even if I order nothing from it.
(7/16) Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens. I'm a crossover ho, and that's pretty much all there is to it.
(9/16) Tarzan On the Planet of the Apes. I'm not going to lie- I'm incredibly geeked over this one. There was a thread here on CV a little over 4 years ago, asking what crossovers we'd like to see. I suggested Tarzan vs. POTA, but I *never* thought it would happen. So great! :)
(9/16) Titans. I'm digging that it's the original Titans (more or less). We'll see if I stay enamored with it. I was liking Titans Hunt, but I have yet to get the final issues.
(10/16) Moonshine. I liked the first issue, and I loved Azzarello's Wonder Woman, so I'm looking forward to this.
