Erik Larsen Vs The Comics Industry (Again) In Savage Dragon #244

But before that can happen, there has to be a licensing meeting with Image Comics, the people who now publish the Savage Darhon comic book within the Savage Dragon world itself, a conceit that creator Erik Larsen has used a few times, in clear reference to the way Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and then John Byrne used to do it in the Fantastic Four. And, while he's at it, getting a few pops in at the comic book industry while he's at it…
