Dynamite Entertainment has announced that it will begin publishing comics based on the Turok: Dinosaur Hunter franchise starting from February 5th 2014. The comics will be written by Greg Pak (Batman/Superman, World War Hulk) and the art will be done by Mirko Colak (Conan). Hopefully this reboot of the comic based franchise will mean that we will see an eventual reboot for the video game series.
“Turok’ is the story of a young Native American who is essentially exiled from his tribe. He’s an outcast for reasons that we will explore. He doesn’t belong anywhere, and into this world come the dinosaurs. It turns everything on its head, and our hero will end up having to decide who he’s going to stand with, and who he’s going to stand against, in a world turned upside down by the arrival of dinosaurs.”
“[Y]ou’ve got this amazing high-concept of a Native American fighting dinosaurs, which is just insanely fun. There are a million different ways you can go in trying to set up and explain that world… we had a lot of fun exploring this world, and coming up with some pretty surprising twists. When you get to the end of this first issue, you’re going to see something you’ve never seen before, and I think it’s going to open up really great storytelling possibilities, and great world-building possibilities.”
