‘Savage Dragon’ endorses Joe Biden in new cover

Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris grace the upcoming cover of ‘Savage Dragon’ in a collectible variant.

A new variant cover for Savage Dragon #253 has been revealed today, depicting Malcom Dragon alongside presidential nominee Joe Biden and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, wearing a Biden/Harris 2020 t-shirt. Dragon is saying, “I’m Malcom Dragon and I endorse Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and Vice President of the United States!”

Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen said the following:

This is an important election. They always say that but with America literally on fire and an ineptly handled pandemic it feels especially so. 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!

Like the quote above says, this isn’t the first time Savage Dragon has endorsed a candidate for President of the United States. In addition to Barack Obama, Image notes in its press release that candidates have appeared on the series’ covers dating back to George W. Bush…though the depiction of Bush 43 on the cover of Savage Dragon #119 wasn’t quite as complimentary.

PORTLAND, Ore. 09/23/2020 — 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 (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.
