Savage Dragon #204: Milo & Ulti-mutt (Funnies)

In this weeks issue of Savage Dragon: another Milo & Ulti-mutt back-up comicstrip by Joey Esposito, Benjamin Bailey, Adam Pruett and Boy Akkerman!

The thought of actively contributing to a comic that we’ve all loved since childhood is still blowing our minds:)


Ulti-Mutt meets Savage Dragon

Starting with the anniversary 200th issue of Savage Dragon there will be a small back-up comicstrip featuring the adventures of everyones favorite superdog: Ulti-Mutt! Written by Joey Esposito and Benjamin Bailey, lettered by Adam Pruett and drawn by Boy Akkerman.

We are all superproud of this new project!

A long time ago, the world’s most renowned superhero disappeared and justice was handed over to the grim-n-gritty vigilantes that blurred the line between the righteous and the wicked. Everyone forgot what it truly meant to be a hero… until the day the Giant Robot Octopus Alien Monster attacked! When one little boy finds the courage to stand up to this alien invader, it just might be enough to inspire the return of the world’s greatest superhero… CAPTAIN ULTIMATE!


The Ultimate Tattoo

For years I have been a big admirer of tattoos. I have always been fascinated by artwork and pictures (even made it a career) so it seemed right up my alley. I watched all the Miami-, New York- and London-Ink shows and was envious of friends with cool tattoos. So why did I remain inkless? Putting something permanent on your body, something that (in theory) will always stay there is not something you should decide lightly.

What if you regretted it later? What if it goes out of style? What if you’re marriage ends and you have a giant portrait of your wife on your back? And it doesn’t seem like my favourite football (soccer for you American heathens) team is going to win a championship any time soon. So what to do? I needed to know that what I put on my body would be something that had meaning and I would never regret. But I never figured out what that should be and so, to my own displeasure, I remained a blank canvas.

Until now…

Because ever since we started working on Captain Ultimate it felt like something special. An all-ages comic with a positive message and lots and lots of fun. A project I am extremely proud of. And that’s when I knew, I found my tattoo.

And so, two weeks ago I finally went ahead with it. Unbeknownst to almost everyone, I made an appointment and headed to the tattoo-shop. Even my Captain Ultimate collaborators Joey, Ben, Adam and Ed didn’t know until I was sitting in the chair and sent them a picture of my current whereabouts. Needless to say, they approved😉


Now, two weeks later, the bloodbath that was my arm has healed and you can see the end result in all its moustachioed glory. And I couldn’t be happier. I am as proud of the tattoo as I am about the comic and know it will be a constant reminder of an amazing period of my life.

(you know, that guy that who draws all the pictures)
