Wolf And Dragon I Have Two Titles Dad And Pawpaw And I Rock Them Both Shirt, hoodie
This week’s issue of Savage Dragon pulled double duty as Image’s special jumping-on issue, North Force #0. North Force, of course, is the Canadian superhero team, which has been playing a bigger role in Savage Dragon in recent months, and who by the end of the issue have recruited a new member from the Savage Dragon cast, and headed into space. The interiors of the issue are slightly different, depending on which version of the story you read, but the overall plot remains intact — a balance Larsen has had to strike before, since there have been a few instances of Savage Dragon issues that had to pull double duty as Free Comic Book Day titles, which serve similar functions.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly identified the North Force one-shot as a Free Comic Book Day title.
It’s a solid jumping-on point for Savage Dragon, and if you go to the comic shop, you can snag North Force #0 if you’d prefer that instead. On digital, both are available for $3.99.
Larsen joined ComicBook to discuss the issue — issues? — and what’s next for both Savage Dragon and North Force.
Off the top, can you tell us what the difference is between the Savage Dragon issue and the North Force one-shot?
In terms of the lead story itself, North Force #0 has voiceover captions which aren’t present in Savage Dragon #259. The two stories have different titles and Savage Dragon ends with a next issue blurb not present in North Force #0.
As far as the rest of the issue, Savage Dragon #259 has the usual letters page and a Red Hook backup story, whereas North Force #0 has character bios for the entire team.
The idea was for North Force #0 to be more focused on the team, whereas Savage Dragon #259 is still very much an issue of Savage Dragon.
Are you hoping to set up a North Force book? Obviously Todd is creating a whole library of titles around Spawn right now.
