The History of Dinosaur Comics - Part 5

Turok Comic Book CoverJust a reminder that the latest (Part 5) History of Dinosaur Comics has been posted at Palaeoblog. Part 5 continues the focus on the Turok: Son of Stone comics.

Steve R. Bissette and Michael Ryan are really providing us with an excellent comic book history of the beasts that once roamed the planet. Even as imaginative as the stories are, they fleshed out the amazing giants long before the readers became palaeontologists, filmmakers, writers, and illustrators. Along with their counterparts, Willis O'Brien and Ray Harryhausen, and others like Steven Spielberg, William Stout, Mark Schultz, Ricardo Delgado, and Frank Cho, they provided stories that inspired backyard bone diggers to become professionals in the field.

If you haven't been reading this informative series, head over to Part 1 now. With Steve and Michael as your guides, you'll time-travel back to a prehistoric era filled with dynamic, inviting cover art, painstakingly beautiful interior illustrations, and addictive serialized adventures.
