What I thought
The art courtesy of Erik Larsen is on point as always. This was however one of the most boring issues of Savage dragon I have ever read. I understand the reason though as it sets up a new status quo, new base of operations, new country etc. Like usual it’s not a comic to read with your kids as we get full frontal nudity of Malcolm’s wife and so much blood you may think this is Spartacus.
The other issue was more like the Savage Dragon I know and love. It was outrageous and jaw dropping. How on this planet is Erik getting away with this stuff on the comic stand? That explosive orgasm and the…waterfall that ends up in her mouth, the position she is in after the event. I’m just open mouthed at this stuff. The action was also on point and even better we get more of the soap opera drama that we know and love.
I give these issues 4/5 stars
