What I thought

Erik Larsen, where the hell does he come up with this stuff? Savage Dragon just keeps getting better and better and crazier and crazier. This issue Maxine gives birth to her child, turns out she has a daughter which as far as memory s concerned has never quite happened in the history of chosen ones. The kid starts off looking like her mother before quickly showing her super strength and later full on morphs into a yellow tinged baby dragon.

Dart seduces evil Dragon, perhaps to gain control of him or perhaps in the hope that she can create her own band of Dragon babies loyal to her.

The kids that were brought in a few issues back turns out they belonged to Malcolm. One he had with Tierra and the other with Angel. So now the couple have three super powered kids. They plan on taking them home but Lorella who has been trying with the original Savage dragon to repopulate their civilization objects because they will be different and Maxine can’t hope to grow them on her own. As they have the conversation unbeknownst to them Dart, Evil Dragon and her crew have killed the doctor and grabbed the boys.

The art as always with Larsen was on point the most striking moment was how he illustrated the three children. One had strong African features, the other European and the other Asian. The eyes are the windows to the soul and Larsen captures this very well. His characters have very expressive and captivating eyes.

I also found it funny how quickly Angel turned on Maxine when the child did not appear like Malcolm was this sisterly defense or hints that she still has feelings for Malcolm?

4/5 stars because it’s like a dysfunctional but very entertaining thrill ride of a show. Larsen needs to sell this to HBO or Starz it deserves to be seen on T.V in all it’s glory.
