When Ricardo Delgado—a prolific development and storyboard artist who has worked on such hit films as Men in Black, The Incredibles, WALL-E, X—Men Origins: Wolverine, and the Matrix series—first set his sights on creating comics, he crafted an epic tale about the most unlikely cast of characters: dinosaurs. Since that first foray into the world of sequential art—which earned him an Eisner win for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition—he has returned to his critically acclaimed Age of Reptiles again and again, each time crafting a captivating saga about his saurian subjects.

* This volume collects the long—out—of—print Age of Reptiles and Age of Reptiles: The Hunt, and the never—before—collected third series, Age of Reptiles: The Journey.

"Delgado once more proves that the age of great illustration is alive and well."
—John Landis, Filmmaker, An American Werewolf in London, Michael Jackson's Thriller

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
No New York gang rumble, in West Side Story or elsewhere, could be as gorgeous or as bloody as the dinosaur dust-ups so abundant in this wordless collection. Probably no actual dinosaur conflicts could be, either: the color choices are pure speculation, the depicted population density improbable, and—according to a Smithsonian article—many of these saurian species never coexisted in place or era. Age of Reptiles began in the 1990s as Eisner-winning comic books and grew into three series. In Tribal Warfare, a clan of Deinonychus steals the eggs of a marauding tyrannosaurus that chased them off their hard-earned prey. The Hunt follows a young allosaurus that takes revenge on the pack of ceratosaurs that slaughtered its mother. Never before collected, the final series, The Journey, follows a mass migration of numerous dinosaur species. All three stories appear here in Delgado's clear-line, you-are-there realism. VERDICT Understood as nature fantasy (reversing James Gurney's Dinotopia) rather than paleontological nonfiction, this collection emerges as a classic of storytelling and a sumptuous meal for dinosaur geeks, tweens and up. Note that frequent and explicit violence may limit placement. Dark Horse confirms that Delgado is planning future volumes.—M.C.
