Dynamite’s Turok #1 is a cowboy comic, hiding inside a story of prehistoric times. Huh?

Writer Ron Marz and artist Roberto Castro, with colourist Salvatore Aiala bring us this tale of two worlds. It all starts with Confederate soldiers in the desert area of 1873 Colorado, bringing in Turok’s brother. He’s been roped and now being walked through a desert valley. It’s a cowboy comic. It’s like Jonah Hex country, boys!

When Turok inevitably shows up, things get weird. It seems there’s a dimensional divide somewhere along the continental divide. It’s the Civil War, cowboys and Indians, a dimensional divide, and divide and conquer!

The action is fun, the pages turn quickly, the art is skillful and well coloured, and well, the story is over before we know it. But tune in again, kids, because we’re just getting started, and the Weird Worlds have yet to be explored in this new iteration of Turok!

Dynamite, Turok #1, #3.99 for 23 pages of content. Teen +

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
