Official Press Release
|Savage Dragon #100|
ORANGE, CA — 6 March, 2002 — With SAVAGE DRAGON #94 in stores now, Erik
Larsen is only six issues away from making comics history: Larsen’s 100th
issue of SAVAGE DRAGON will set a new record for the most consecutive issues
of a comic book written and drawn by a single creator. What’s more, Larsen
will be the first and only Image founder to write and draw 100 consecutive
issues of the title he launched in 1992.
Larsen’s celebrating the occasion with a 100-page super spectacular,
jam-packed with an all-new 22 page lead story and ten additional back-up
stories, for a total of 88 pages of all-new material written and drawn by
the series’ creator. The lead story will be written, penciled and inked by
Larsen, as always, but the back-up stories will be inked by a veritable
who’s who of comic book artists and inkers, including Terry Austin, Al

Gordon, Sam Kieth, Jerry Ordway, Bill Sienkiewicz, Walter Simonson and Tim
Townsend. Rounding out this giant-size extravaganza will be pin-ups by
Arthur Adams, Frank Cho, Carlos Pacheco, Marc Silvestri and Bruce Timm.
Anyone thinking the fun stops there is dead wrong, though, because the
inexhaustible Larsen will also be marking this monumental milestone with an
all-new hardcover, THIS SAVAGE WORLD, collecting SAVAGE DRAGON #76-81.
Both SAVAGE DRAGON #100 and the SAVAGE DRAGON: THIS SAVAGE WORLD HC are
available for order in the April Previews and will go on sale in June.
