History of Erik Larsen in Comic Book Art

Erik Larsen first created his own superhero character called the Savage Dragon. He published his own fanzine that featured the character, along with a friend entitled Graphic Fantasy.

The character was heavily influenced by the Captain Marvel series, of which Larsen was an avid reader growing up. Graphic Fantasy ran for three issues, but was later reprinted in much higher quality later in Larsen's career.

His first work for other publishers came in 1985 with work on the series Sentinel of Justice for AC Comics and The DNAgents for Eclipse Comics.

Following that Larsen began to work for DC Comics on titles like The Outsiders, Teen Titans, Adventures of Superman and Doom Patrol.

He moved over to Marvel Comics after being offered a position as a fill-in for Vince Colletta's inking on Thor. From there, he did fill-in work on The Amazing Spider-Man and the Punisher. Larsen also did pencilling on Marvel's Excalibur series during this period.

His big break came in 1990 when he took over pencilling duties from Todd McFarlane on The Amazing Spider-Man with issue #329. His run on The Amazing Spider-Man showcased his talent for drawing the villain Venom. It was Larsen's creation to give Venom the long reptilian tongue and dripping slime. These new visual elements were kept with the character long after Larsen's departure from the series.

He would continue to draw the series through to issue #350, before succeeding McFarlane again on the series Spider-Man, drawing issues #18-23.

In 1992, Larsen left Marvel but would return occasionally to draw on specific series like Fantastic Four, The Defenders, Wolverine and Nova. Larsen was one of six Marvel artists to break away from the publisher that same year to form Image Comics. The artists were seeking greater creative control and higher profit margins with their breakaway company.

It was there that Larsen was able to relaunch his original character the Savage Dragon in 1993. Initially only a limited series of three issues, its immense popularity justified a regular monthly series. The Savage Dragon series and Spawn are the only two remaining Image Comics series that are still in production today with Larsen still writing and drawing the series himself.

Larsen won an Inkpot Award in 2012 and an All-in-One Inkwell Award in 2016 for his work on Savage Dragon.
