PORTLAND, Ore. 11.9.2020 — Image Comics partner and CFO Erik Larsen is celebrating the Biden/Harris win by sending the hit issue Savage Dragon #253 back to print with a congratulatory cover for the President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
"After a long and hard fought Presidential Election the victors have been chosen by an overwhelming number of voters. Savage Dragon #253 had an endorsement cover which was enthusiastically received by readers and it quickly sold out in stores across the country and around the world," said Larsen. "This post-Election second printing cover celebrates the People’s choice with a congratulatory message from the title’s star, Malcolm Dragon. The best is yet to come!"
Larsen has previously done covers featuring cameos of politicians including his recent first printing Biden/Harris endorsement cover, which sold out at the distributor level, and his cover endorsing Barack Obama sold out and went back to press four times.
Savage Dragon has had a long tradition of president and candidate covers dating back to George W. Bush, and covers featuring past presidents have become highly collectible items.
Savage Dragon #253 second printing (Diamond Code OCT208042) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 9.
Savage Dragon #253 is also available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
