Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon Getting NSFW Cover in July

Comics legend and Image Comics co-founder Erik Larsen is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his hit creation Savage Dragon in the sexiest possible way. Image has announced a special XXX, NSFW variant cover by Rafael Krás for the series’ 225th issue, and as teased in an official press release from the publisher, it’s “not for the faint of heart (and certainly NSFW…*wink*).”

The new Savage Dragon XXX cover follows a recent trend for Image — the publisher has released several NSFW covers as of late, perhaps most notably for Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky’s Sex Criminals.

“Sometimes I do things just because it amuses me. Image has done a few NSFW covers of late, and while they certainly qualify as NSFW, they haven’t been especially raunchy. The thought of some reader unwrapping this from its plastic sheath and doing a spit-take makes me laugh,” Larsen said in a statement. “I love comics—all comics. Every kind of comic book. If it’s well done, you can count me in as a fan. Love the underground comics from the ’60s and ’70s. Love European comics. I love a good superhero comic. I love a good horror comic. I love a good fantasy comic. I love a good Western comic. I love a good sex comic. I love a good comic—period. Love ‘em all.”

Commenting on Krás’ career, Larsen said, “Rafael Krás does amazing porn comics. He drew a Dart story for me, years ago, teamed with relative newcomer Rafael Albuquerque. Rafael Krás went one direction, and Rafael Albuquerque went another, and I’ve followed both of their careers with interest. In any case, having seen some other NSFW covers and knowing Rafael Krás’ work, I thought it’d be fun to really raise the bar and see what happens. Heh.”
