PORTLAND, Ore. 9.23.2020 — Image Comics partner and CFO Erik Larsen is voting Biden/Harris this election season with an alternate cover of Savage Dragon #253 revealed today.
“This is an important election. They always say that but with America literally on fire and an ineptly handled pandemic it feels especially so,” said Larsen. “Twelve years ago SAVAGE DRAGON endorsed BARACK OBAMA and history was made. Savage Dragon #137 was the first comic book to feature the then-candidate Obama on its cover and it became a global sensation. It’s time to take a stance once more and help make the country, and the world, a better place!”
Larsen has previously done covers featuring cameos of politicians, 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 Cover B (Diamond Code AUG208695) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 21.
Savage Dragon #253 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
