The collected original mini series - 4 issues!
Savage Dragon is the most cutting edge mainstream superhero comic ever created. In this very first story arc, we meet Officer Dragon, a brand new cop in a Chicago overrun with super freaks and crime lords. Creator Erik Larsen takes big risks with storytelling, characterization, and plot, infusing this series with violence, sex, and humor in a way previously unseen in the genre. He takes liberties no other creator can, and will surprise you at every turn. This book retools and reworks the original trade paperback with more unpublished sketches and art! It's the mini-series that started it all!
