The time is now. A Military helicopter crash lands in a remote valley in Africa. A lone survivor awakens with no memory of who he is or what he was doing there, but he's wearing a uniform and is a skilled combatant. From the wreckage he learns only his name -- ROGER DRUM. As he explores his new surroundings he is confronted by a bizarre lost world of dinosaurs and other strange creatures. Drum must learn to survive in this terrifying new reality while coming to terms with fragments of a past he isn't sure he wants to remember.As a bonus, this over-sized issue also includes the original first issue with fantastic art by the one-and-only Frank Frazetta at no extra cost!

    The art by Cliff is good, it really helps add to the kind of silent dialogue. You really want the art to help show the world we have been transported to. It really is a great collaboration between the team. Read Full Review

    There isn't much dialogue in this issue. Instead, captions and inner thoughts are repeated throughout the story in an attempt to drive home the protagonist's confused mental state. This is a situation where the art, which I happened to enjoy, advances the story more effectively than anything else. Overall, this was an intriguing debut issue, and it should grip readers enough to warrant checking out the next installment. Read Full Review

    Artist Cliff Richards (no, not that one) is capable, but like the story itself, it is hardly something you will pondering after you turn the final page. Read Full Review

    A redeeming factor is a reprint of Frazetta's original issue following the main story. Without the reprint, this issue would score 1 star but that touch of class matters. The 10 page story has been re-colored when compared to Dark Horse's 2010 archive edition. Another bright spot is the implication the dinosaurs will be harassing Drum beyond the first issue. Once Frazetta left "Thun'da" after issue #1, the dinosaurs of the Lost Land became a rarity. Hopefully the giant lizards stick around a lot longer with Dynamite. Read Full Review
