Dynamite Comics has announced that they’re reviving a classic. Star of comics and games, Turok is coming back.
The son of stone
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Turok in anything, be that video games or comics. After a failed restart to a game series, and a few comic book appearances, the characters has fallen off the face of the Earth.
That’s in stark contrast to his 90s run. Not only was he featured in a shared comic book universe, but he was also the focus of some excellent FPS’ on the N64. The first two games in that series are still held in high regard.
But now he’s on the way back once more to the comics realm, and with a solid team behind him. Dynamite comics will be handling the publishing of the book, with Ron Marz attached to write it. Providing the art will be Roberto Castro, who you might know from Dynamite’s Red Sonja.
As for the story, well it’s sounding like pretty iconic Turok fare. And yes, there’ll be dinosaurs.
In this new series from Dynamite Entertainment, Turok pursues his kidnapped brother… in the Badlands of the Old West! In the waning days of the Indian Wars, the U.S. cavalry has captured Andar, but Turok will stop at nothing to rescue him. But that quest will lead Turok, Andar, and even the soldiers to a strange, lost land inhabited by creatures beyond their imaginations. This is Turok as you’ve never seen him before … and Turok as you’ve always seen him!
Watch for Turok #1, hitting the stands this coming January.
