Gil Kane’s ‘Savage’ (classic comic-book review).

November 9, 2020 | By | Reply More

It’s time for another classic comic-book review with Ed and Jim. This time, it’s Gil Kane’s Savage which comes under the spotlight.

From the look of it, this is Fantagraphics’ 1982 reprint, where Kane altered the hero’s face to avoid getting sued again (the original 1968 edition based the face on actor Lee Marvin – ho ho ho). It’s a spy-fy strip about a renegade retired cyborg general, Simon Mace, who kidnaps the U.S. president to impersonate him and start world war three.

Gil Kane in the 1960s co-created the modern versions of DC Comics’ Green Lantern and the Atom, and was was an early advocate of creators’ rights. Got to love that.
