Episode 65: Old Man Superman with Erik Larsen



Welcome to another installment of The Hour Cosmic, your favorite comics game show! This week, our guest is "Savage Dragon" creator and Image Comics co-founder, Erik Larsen!

On this week’s show, among other things, we discuss:

- The ordinary adventures of Blue Bolt!
- Malcolm's destiny to be the Savage Dragon!
- Continuity!
Let's meet our guests, shall we?



Erik Larsen is the creator, writer, and artist on "Savage Dragon," which just entered a new era by enlisting Malcolm Dragon, the son of the original Dragon, as the new lead in the series. He is also one of the co-founders of Image Comics, which, in case you've never really followed comics ever, was a revolutionary move and continues to shape and influence the world of comics today. Please check out his website, the Image website, and follow him on Twitter (@erikjlarsen).

As always, your hosts are:



Brian Salvatore – New Jerseyan, New York Mets enthusiast, host of “Input/Output,” a music podcast, and occasional blogger/freelance writer. He has never met a dog he didn’t like (even that one that bit his leg when he was 10), and has baked better bread than he ever thought possible.

Chad Bowers – South Carolinian, GI Joe enthusiast, co-writer of “Subatomic Party Girls" “Down Set Fight,” and “Awesome Hospital” with Chris Sims, and writer of “Monster Plus.” He teaches us cool expressions like “Oh, snakes!” and has a lot of opinions about barbeque.

Matthew Meylikhov – Bostonian, cat and beard enthusiast, co-writer of “Detective Space Cat” with Colin Bell, writer of “Morning Glories Babies,” "Morning Glories Academy Study Hall" (both backmatter for the Image Comics series "Morning Glories") and “Control,” and letterer extraordinaire. He reads more comics than anyone on the planet, and has sworn off White Castle for life.
