The History of Dinosaur Comics - Parts 7, 8, and 9

Ricardo Delgado Age of Reptiles The Hunt 05 Cover ImageSteve Bissette and Dr. Michael Ryan finish up their fun series of articles on The History of Dino-Comics over at Palaeoblog. Though not current to 2005, the history is worth checking out for the diverse set of dinosaur depictions alone.

You can find Part 7 here, Part 8 here, and the conclusion, Part 9, at this link.

Michael also plans to expand on the history by featuring an upcoming interview with Steve Bissette himself and a look at his own Dinosaur book, Tyrant. Other fascinating creators and creations to be discussed over the next several weeks include Mark Schultz and a look at his Xenozoic Tales series (among his other works), and writer/illustrator Pete Von Sholly.

The adventure continues folks so head over to Palaeoblog and refresh your 'prehistoric' memory!

Note: If you haven't picked up any of the hard-to-find past issues of Schultz's Xenozoic Tales series and still want to get your hands on these beautifully crafted tales, Dark Horse Comics recently reprinted the first 14 issues in two softcover volumes. I was given a copy of each from Mark himself and in addition to containing his great artwork, they come in a comic-friendly size for easy portability. One of my highest recommendations. I've provided the purchase links below.
