New review is up on the Comic Book Revolution and it’s a double feature! I tackle both issues of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Savage Dragon Crossover (Savage Dragon #2 and TMNT/Savage Dragon Crossover #1). Here is a preview of the review-

93coverIt’s Company Crossover time here at XTREME Holofoil Edition! Company crossovers are more unique than line-wide event crossovers we see everywhere. It isn’t everyday you see two separate companies crossing over two of their biggest characters for many reasons, primarily due to legal constraints, revenue sharing, and overall massive ego’s between companies. So, whenever two companies cross things over it is a special occasion, at least until the 90’s when every company was crossing over left and right. This week we are going to take a look at a crossover that no one expected but still kicked some Shell. That crossover was between The Savage Dragon and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

While I really didn’t have to explain the origins of the Turtles and who they are, I am going to have to explain The Savage Dragon for most people. The Savage Dragon is (or was, long story) a cop working for Chicago Police Department as a superpowered cop that specialized in taking down Superhumans. Given his unique skill set, The Savage Dragon was frequently loaned out to other cities, which is key to today’s reviews.

Yes, reviews. You get two full reviews for the place of one. This is because The Savage Dragon/TMNT crossover was a two part comic, one issue taking part in the Savage Dragon ongoing and the other being a special one shot. This means a couple things. Firstly, the Turtles are officially apart of the cannon of Savage Dragon and several other Image titles. Secondly, it is confusing to people buying the comics in the back issues bin. Of course it was done this way to sort out the whole how do the publishers make money from this by both publishing a tie-in (common with crossovers). Now with that said we shall begin the double feature.
