Turok #3, from Dynamite, certainly ramps up the dino/sci-fi vibe.

The Turok world is the Lost Valley, a zone where prehistoric beasts roam but are occasionally joined by elements from other times in history. Things drop in from other times. Old, new, slow, fast, whatever. They fall through the sky in thunderstorms, basically. All good.

So, Turok is on his way into the Storm Lands to rescue his daughter. He’s working to convince his companions, Nettle and Marak, that they should help him. Then, bad things start to happen!

I found this chapter of an obviously continuing story to be good reading (writer: Chuck Wendig), and the art to be really strong. Artist Alvaro Sarraseca manages to portray convincing figures, prehistoric creatures, and environments.

The backup story in this issue features Doc Spektor, written by Aubrey Sitterson and art by Dylan Burnett. It’s a slam-packed tale of debts being repaid in the most violent of ways and continues from Magnus #5. Imaginative and well told.

Turok #3, Dynamite, 25 pages of reading for your $3.99. 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!!
