Savage Dragon 199
> COUNTDOWN TO ISSUE #200 REACHES ITS PENULTIMATE ISSUE! Malcolm Dragon tackles the deadly Demonoids! It's an allout underworld war as the Lava Lords, Ant-Menaces, and Demonoids battle it out for world domination-and whoever wins-we lose!! The surface world is on fire and the son of the Savage Dragon is in over his head!

After leaving this title -and Image- probably about a decade ago, just tried this because of good review that led me to believe this was bound to be interesting. It was a battlefest bonanza bringing costumed crusaders cameos galore. As to Mr.Larson's letters page question:

He "succeeds" at making a whole issues of double page battle splashes a lot of fun -and interesting- even not knowing who everyone was. My question: Who was everyone? \:\) Can anyone name everyone who showed up - before wiki posts the answer?

Is Dragon gray now instead of green?
Who is that cool Demonoid Ruler?
Dragon has a (hot looking) older step-sister?
Dragon's name is Malcolm?
Wow, that city has got trashed!
He gets honorary mention for this list \:\)
Dragon has a new GF? Maxine who?
Interesting they let the demonoids crawl back into their hole - afterall, what else can they do?
Wow, that's a lot of guest star?
Interested in checking out #200 - or at least the preview now.
Not that interested in the Vanguard backup but LOL at the new Misery Loves Sherman comic strip.




I miss Dad and Dan.

Malcolm is Dragon's SON, his mother was the hot electric chick Rapture (dead now) His 'Sister' is really a step sister, Dragon married her Mom (Dart?) She's not around anymore either.

Malcolm had a combo of his Father and Mother's powers but a recent incident stole the Electric powers away.

Dragon himself it turned out was a vile and despicable nasty murderous monster known as Emperor Kurr before he mysteriously appeared in SD #1. His people wiped his mind clean and gave him what he had for a memory when he was dumped on Earth. Kurr's personality emerged and let's just say Yada Yadda Yadda, Malcom's old man is in Prison for life now even though the personality was squashed for good. AND his powers are gone for good too.

So Malcolm has taken over as the titular character now. This is a ferociously fun book that goes from comical to heartbreaking and dark in a panel. One of my absolute favorites.
