Nature conquers all! Marooned in an unforgiving prehistoric landscape, high society's most privileged celebrity family is fighting tooth and claw - literally - for survival. With no shelter, no weapons and no escape, the Savage family is about to come face to face with the cruelest laws of nature - in the form of the lethal dinosaurs that somehow stalk the impossibly ancient island that has become their home. Once they lose everything - and each other - what part of them will endure? Where will the man inside each of them end...and the animal begin?

It's survival of the fiercest as acclaimed writer B. Clay Moore (Aloha, Hawaiian Dick more

    Savage is a visually brilliant spectacle of the beauty and savage reality that exists in this story. Both a magical wonder and violent bloodbath, Savage is the escape from reality you have been searching for. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Erik Goodrich Dec 28, 2016

    Again Savage has intrigued me as much as it entertained me. The story has suddenly become so much more than the "jungle boy vs. dinosaurs" story that the first issue presented us. Several serious questions have been raised, and I for one am chomping at the bit for the third issue! If you haven't gotten into this series yet, I highly suggest you get yourself to your local comic shop and grab them both, you won't be disappointed! Read Full Review

    Overall, B. Clay Moore, Clayton Henry, and Lewis LaRosa, who are shaping up to be a creative dream team, once again deliver a strong entry in this limited series. The visuals in SAVAGE #2 maintain the high standard set in SAVAGE #1, as does the writing and pacing in general. SAVAGE is a visually powerful, compelling, and highly-nuanced series that everyone should be reading. If you haven't picked up the first issue yet, you seriously need to. Read Full Review

    There have been stories like Savage. Land of the Lost, Lost, Swiss Family Robinson, Journey to the Center of the Earthand etc have all done outstanding tales of survival in the face of adversity. What make stories like these interesting is not just the addition of a twist to the tale. What makes these stories work is an understanding of how these environments transforms these characters. How someone can go from civilized to savage (I don't like those terms, but they were the only ones I could use to simply convey an idea.) left alone to survive nature's power. Halfway through its run, Savage demonstrates that it can do these things and more, and I look forward to the final two issues. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Alex K Cossa Dec 29, 2016

    The only downside to the series thus far is the feeling that this is an excellent set up for a long story about the characters involved, but as this is (at least as far as I know) only going to be a four-issue miniseries, I worry that the page count won't be long enough to do the story justice.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Dec 26, 2016

    Savage is turning into my addictive guilty comic book pleasure. The story is great at delivering realistic and cinematic storytelling with great art. The parents aren't quite as strongly written as everything else, but hell, they aren't the focus anyway. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 28, 2016

    I went into the first issue with no knowledge of the series and its intentions but with that and the second issue I'm quickly falling in love with it. The book is one that I can see at the end of its run being graded higher as a whole once you know the whole narrative but it's winning me over handily with each individual installment. The present day material is just a lot of fun from an action/dinosaur standpoint as it's light on story itself, focusing more on showing us where everything ends up, and the flashback material has fleshed out everyone really well and has left me wanting more. It's a very fun read that's engaging and smooth and a story that's just visually dynamic and hugely fun to watch play out with just about every panel. Read Full Review

    If experimental material and new, fresh story froma different point of view is what you're looking for, then make sure to read Savage #2. It took me longer than expected to get to it, but it was worth it in the end. Read Full Review

    Two more issues left and I'll be getting them for the art, but I hope the story starts to pull through as well. Read Full Review
