ORDINARY GODS #8

RADIANT BLACK #14

RADIANT RED #2 (OF 5)

SAVAGE DRAGON #264
(W) Erik Larsen (A/CA) Erik Larsen

“THE STORY OF PAUL!”

Paul Dragon’s secrets revealed! Malcolm’s father from another dimension has been something of a mystery man, but at long last, we’ll see how his story diverges from his Image Universe counterpart’s.
