Savage Dragon Archives Volume 1 by Erik Larsen, $19.99. 616 pages. Please note: Black and white reprints of full color comics

The last mainstream comic? The only constant thing in our lives? Savage Dragon has provided me with a lot of happiness, and these early issues are the Mona Lisa of modern superhero comics. This collection has 24 full continuity issues, the initial 3 issue miniseries and then the first 21 issues of the regular series, all printed in black and white. I was a bit worried about the reproduction quality before seeing this, but the black and white is actually wonderful and reprinted with real care. With these volumes, you're seeing Larsen's art, nothing else...which is great! Issue #7 of Savage Dragon remains my all time favorite adventure comic...grab this and have a good time.
