    Moments in comics like these don't come often, and issue 200 is a good a time as any to jump on the Savage Dragon train. It's fun. You'll like it. Read Full Review

    It would be a foolish move not to pick up this issue as a fan, but a missed opportunity as a comic reader if you have never read Savage Dragon and didnt pick up this issue to see if it is for you. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Whiting Dec 10, 2014

    Savage Dragon #200 is a big-ass issue filled with plenty to like for fans of the fin-head. It's not the perfect jumping on point, doesn't change the narrative game too much and features action sequences that aren't quite on par with Larsen's best work/choreography, but it is a fun ride that's definitely worth a look — especially if you're already a fan.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 10, 2014

    Four pages of newspaper style comic strips -- including the third installment of Flash Mercury -- round out "Savage Dragon" #200 before the final cover is closed. Taken by sheer volume, Larsen's two-hundredth issue of his original Image Comics' creation is a spectacle to behold, but with a few friends along for an assist, Larsen gives readers an anniversary issue worth closer investigation. This is a decent sampler that has plenty of character-defining moments, but not a whole lot to make any of the characters exceptionally endearing. "Savage Dragon" #200 provides a surprisingly sufficient introduction to a world that has two-hundred issues behind it. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - James Anders II Dec 11, 2014

    In spite of some good ones though, I believe the opening story set the pace and the whole issue never quite recovered from it. I think as a Savage Dragon fan, this issue should probably be viewed for what it is, a historical accomplishment. But as far as overall enjoyment, this historic #200 never quite lives up to the building hype. Now that it's finished, maybe things can get back in order for #201. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Roberto de Bexar Dec 15, 2014

    But still, I come back to his son, Malcom and the crazy amount of sex that Larson has him and his girlfriend and his step/not stepsister have with each other. It read like a middle-aged man trying to relive what he wished his sex life had been when he was 18 years old. Here's hoping that the next issue rights the ship. As it stands with this issue, this is for Savage Dragon fans only. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Dec 9, 2014

    Everything in this issue reads, looks and feels like fan fiction. The bad kind of fan fiction. It's poorly slapped together in places and the sudden urge to bring more adult themes into the mix is simply out of the blue Read Full Review
