That's hilarious. Might get me to read Savage Dragon. I only read the odd issue as a kid.

Wow. So likely to bring hate mail - so likely to boost sales. Awesome idea - seems I might have to pick up a copy of this.

If anyone can pull something like this off, it's Erik. "Savage Dragon" has always been at its best when it doesn't take itself too seriously and just plain has fun with stuff. Remember Santa vs. Satan?

This is the same guy who had Hitler's mutated brain in the body of a mountain gorilla. This should come as no surprise.

This is just how the series runs. It never takes itself too seriously and is just a fun ride.
