As part of DC Comics launch of Grant Morrison’s New 52 opus this week of The Multiversity #1 (major spoilers here), a parody / homage of Image Comics’ The Savage Dragon was included in the book in the form of Dino-Cop from Earth 41.
The Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen of Image Comics has commented on the inclusion of Dino-Cop in DC’s Multiversity on his twitter account as follows. Comics professionals Rob Liefeld and Tim Seeley also chimed in:
Looks like Erik Larsen wasn’t an initial fan, but understands its a parody. If DC Comics launches a New 52 Dino-Cop series, well Erik Larsen hints that all gloves will be off then.
Thanks for reading. All feedback welcome.
