On a mysterious island seemingly untouched by time, order is about to give way to instinct. Stranded with no hope of rescue, the Sauvage family must sacrifice the people they once were...and embrace the animals within! But as prehistoric monsters stalk them at every turn, will their newfound bestialness be enough to ensure survival, or will they be forever trapped at the bottom of the food chain? And when tragedy befalls the once close-knit family, will their last tether to humanity be severed once and for all?

    Do yourself a favor and get into Savage as soon as you possibly can. You'll be severely disappointed that you missed out on Valiant Entertainment's newest and incredibly ambitious miniseries. With only one issue left, I honestly cannot wait to see where The Boy goes from here! Read Full Review

    Sadly, there is only one more issue of this phenomenal series left. With so much left to uncover, Moore must encapsulate a fair amount of information in just a few more pages. Though this more than likely will not be a problem, it still leaves me to believe that we will still have so much of this bizarre island to explore. A tale such as this one deserves to be returned to. Hopefully, this will be the case. There is not doubt in my mind that many readers would say the same. Read Full Review

    Strikingly visual storytelling at its best. This is the Valiant series everyone should be reading. It's self-contained and riveting comic book storytelling. Read Full Review

    As tragic as the comic feels, however, it's wonderfully eye catching withLarosa and Dalhouse the art team on the present, and Henry and Reber handling the past. The comic is as beautiful as it is brutal. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jan 26, 2017

    With another piece of Kevin's life torn away from him here, the book is becoming more focused on him as the island and life here has definitely molded him well. His mother has given him the tools he needs to survive and he's gained some solid cunning as a boy growing up here. The mix of past and present is well done and Moore keeps the book moving and interesting the whole way through. Henry and Larosa definitely take it up several steps with the quality of the artwork and the passion that comes from it and that makes the whole thing just a thoroughly engaging trip worth taking a few times in order to soak up all the details. This series has been an absolute blast to read and I'm curious as to what the long term plans are for it while simply enjoying what's in the here and now. Read Full Review

    While it feels slow at times, "Savage" is still one of the more interesting mini-series on the market. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 25, 2017

    It is really hard for this reviewer to put his finger on just what is making Savage such a compelling read. It is, in all fairness a basic story, but it just oozes this dramatic feel to it. Maybe it is the flash-forward and flashback set up with the contrasting art that makes Savage such a good read or it could be the fascination of seeing this baby/young child turn into a vicious beast of a killer that strikes fear into men. Whatever it is this creative team has it.Savageis a must read. With only one more issue to go, it will be interesting to see where this book goes for here and how exactly Savage fits into the larger Valiant Universe. Read Full Review

    GearWERKZ - Agasicles Stamas Jan 28, 2017

    Valiant takes some risks in doing a stranded-on-an-island adventure comic. There's tons of potential here, but issue #3 just does not tie it together as well as it could have. It's a fresh venue, and that is needed on the comics landscape today. A bit more consistency in some of the artwork styling and this series will be nailing it. As it is, Issue #3 comes in just shy of taking the ribbon. Read Full Review
