Image Comics: Life After Death of Savage Dragon?

Image Comics announced today In issue Savage Dragon #169, Malcolm Dragon may have some tough tasks ahead.The following comment below is from the press release:

"In the last couple years, Dragon went from being a cop to being the greatest menace to ever appear in this book," said Image Comics founder and creator of SAVAGE DRAGON Erik Larsen. "Characters in SAVAGE DRAGON change just like people do in the real world. Malcolm didn't even exist when the series started, but readers have been there to see him grow from a baby to a guy old enough to star in his own book. This is a big step for him and a big turning point for the series. It's an exciting time for everybody."

SAVAGE DRAGON began in 1992, but the character was originally conceived of during Larsen's childhood. Since the beginning, the story has moved forward in real time, including the gradual growth and aging of characters. Now the young Savage Dragon that sought to fight crime in the early '90s is gone, but Chicago still needs a hero. Enter: Malcolm Dragon!

Malcolm Dragon must cope with the death of his father, the famous Savage Dragon. He will need to be prepared to fill his father's shoes and take over as the crime fighter fending off villains. He will not only face these obstacles, but also deal with still being a teen and feeling alone.
Savage "Emperor" Dragon issue #169 can help new readers of the comic to follow Malcolm Savage in his new journey in life. The issues are filled with action, crime fighting, and great humor.
 SAVAGE DRAGON #169 (DEC100491), a 32 page full-color comic book, is in stores on February 23, 2011 for $3.50.
