Valiant has tapped Max Bemis and Nathan Stockman to tell the next chapter in the story of Savage, a Kazar/Tarzan-esque boy who grew up on a remote island populated by dinosaurs and other terrifying things. The new miniseries will kick off in June.
“Savage is the biggest story I’ve ever told. As in it’s my aesthetic turned up to eleven and crammed into the skin of a summer blockbuster film,” Bemis said in a press release. “If you dig the more fun and up-tempo stuff I’ve done like Worst X-Man Ever, this is the book you’ve been waiting for.”
Here’s how Valiant describes the book: Kevin Sauvage, aka Savage, grew up on a remote island populated by bloodthirsty dinosaurs and terrifying marauders. The wild child knew only one thing: survival. Now, he’s living in London and has become a breakout viral sensation. As Savage learns to live in his new environment, a taste of home comes to London as dinosaurs invade the city! It’s time for Savage to do what he does best: hunt!
“This series is everything I love about comics. It’s big action, laughs, and a great story,” Stockman said. “Every page has something I enjoy drawing and hopefully that energy will translate to the readers. I want them to have as much fun reading as I’m having drawing!”
Savage first made his debut in 2016, in a miniseries by B. Clay Moore and Clayton Henry. You can check out some preview pages for the new series below:
