“Super Freaks” #1

Savage Dragon fans unite to produce one of the wildest comics ever created! In 2021, hosts of the Savage FINcast—a podcast that celebrates Savage Dragon and the work of creator and Image Comics co-founder, Erik Larsen—began planning a way to celebrate their ten-year anniversary. After brainstorming and gauging the interests of their friends, the hosts decided to attempt a self-published Savage Dragon Fanzine featuring the talents of their fellow Savage Dragon enthusiasts. With approval from Larsen himself, the hosts began work on the fanzine with the goal of producing something that could be awarded as a prize to their podcast listeners. The project—now titled Super Freaks—brought in the talents of twenty Savage Dragon super-fans, contributing four-to-five-page stories, one-page gag strips, pinups, and more.

The Press Release:
Written by Christos Gage and drawn by Todd Nauck, Gwen Stacy’s first ever solo series launched in 2019 and presented a thrilling never-before-told Silver Age mystery that saw a pre-Spider-Man Gwen go up against villains like Green Goblin and Kingpin. A hit with readers, the series was sadly left unfinished… until now! Coming in August is GIANT-SIZE GWEN STACY #1, an epic one-shot reprinting the first two issues and, for the first time ever, collecting the final three issues! As fabulous, fierce and smart as Gwen herself, GIANT-SIZE GWEN STACY is an extraordinary saga worthy of Marvel’s “It Girl.”

“Giant-Size Gwen Stacy” #1

Gwen and Peter may not have met until AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #31, but that doesn’t mean Gwen’s life began on that page. Meet Gwen Stacy, beauty queen of Standard High, sure, but so much more. Science whiz Gwen Stacy (you don’t think she landed in Peter’s advanced science classes at ESU because of her good looks, did you?) has an indomitable spirit that, much to her police Captain dad’s chagrin, gets her into serious trouble a lot! This in-continuity story will see Gwen tackle a Marvel Universe-spanning conspiracy that has her cross paths with dangerous Marvel villains and team-up with the original X-Men!
