The Savage Dragon is back, or he's not back. Enjoyed the story, but I was getting confused after awhile trying to determine which world Dragon was in. Those alternate realities, doppelgangers can do it to me sometimes. The Savage Dragon #99 moved at lightning pace and I was quite intrigued when Savage Dragon learns that he created a new reality, because of his presence there. Savage Dragon has much to contemplate as his friends practically get on their knees to keep him there. Savage Dragon was as confused as I was.

I think I would have freaked if I was the Savage Dragon and learned that some guy in a dirty nightshirt called Osama Bin Laden destroyed the World Trade Center. Erik, you definitely know how to deliver hardcore one-on-one fights. Savage Dragon v. Savage Dragon was no exception. Beautifully choreographed (if this was a Savage Dragon movie). I felt the pressure that the good Savage Dragon was facing when the bad Savage Dragon was ready to break Alex's neck. Talk about extreme stress.

It all comes down to the fact that the good Savage Dragon killed Darklord and this ruined the bad Savage Dragon's plans. The bad Dragon doesn't hesitate to let it be known that he is the Dragon from Darkworld! What a way to go, the Dragon from Darkworld who Savage Dragon couldn't have killed anyway, is sent out to oblivion, into the dark void forever and ever! What a good way to end this segment!
