Max Bemis and Nathan Stockman Get Ready Turok with Savage at Valiant in June

Valiant Entertainment has announced a new series launching in June from writer Max Bemis and artist Nathan Stockman, with colors by Brian Reber, and letters by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou. Tooting their own horn in a press release, Valiant calls Savage "a thrilling new series that's packed with over-the-top action, animated artwork, and a massively entertaining and totally unpredictable story."

Kevin Sauvage, aka Savage, grew up on a remote island populated by bloodthirsty dinosaurs and terrifying marauders. The wild child knew only one thing: survival. Now, he's living in London and has become a breakout viral sensation. As Savage learns to live in his new environment, a taste of home comes to London as dinosaurs invade the city! It's time for Savage to do what he does best: hunt!

Savage was created by B. Clay Moore, Clayton Henry, and Lewis LaRosa back in 2016 as a sort-of-replacement for Turok in NuValiant. The press release contains quotes about the new series from Bemis…

SAVAGE is the biggest story I've ever told. As in it's my aesthetic turned up to eleven and crammed into the skin of a summer blockbuster film. If you dig the more fun and up-tempo stuff I've done like Worst X-Man Ever, this is the book you've been waiting for.

…Stockman…

This series is everything I love about comics. It's big action, laughs, and a great story. Every page has something I enjoy drawing and hopefully that energy will translate to the readers. I want them to have as much fun reading as I'm having drawing!

…and editor David Menchel.

Max is bringing brutality and humor together in a truly unique way, simultaneously delivering high octane thrills and deeply clever laughs. Nate has been turning in pages that perfectly balance the absurdity and violence in a way I didn't think was possible. There's no other team that could deliver this particular story as well as these guys are, and that message is loud and clear from page one all the way to page twenty.

Savage #1 launches on June 17th, with covers by Marcus To, Christian Ward, Stacey Lee, and Guiseppe Camuncoli.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
