Turok, wandering warrior from a far land, rescues Andar, son of a Chiricahua chief, from the ruthless King Maxtla and his Aztec horde. Pursued into a vast cavern, prey and predators are swept away by an unimaginable force to a savage, timeless land of nightmares and miracles, where dinosaurs thunder and rampage. Beset by bloodthirsty enemies and beasts, Turok and Andar encounter an even deadlier threat-the fearsome Panther People and their mesmerizing goddess, Aasta.

Turok, Son of Stone returns, reimagined by legendary writer Jim Shooter and illustrated by hot new talent Eduardo Franc (Victory, Executive Assistant: IRIS).

    Franciscos work is good and perfect for the plain landscapes and mountains needed to capture the world of Turok. The line work has qualities similar to Joe Kubert but with a very different style. My first criticism would be that there are too many lines in the characters faces that obstruct their features. Franciscos characters could easily get away with a bit less line work. My second criticism has to do with storytelling. In some panels where crucial action is happening, there is too much of a gap between the panels making the flow of the action uncertain. For example, in one scene, Turok and Andar are back against a mountain flank with the warriors of the other tribe circling them. Yet, they manage to escape the circle and have much distance between themselves and their opponents. Thats quite a stretch. Read Full Review

    This isnt the best book Ive read recently, but its definitely worth another look next month and helps me believe the old rebel may be starting to get back in the groove after dusting off a few cobwebs. B-. Read Full Review

    I am interested to find out more about Turok. I feel I learned more from the reprint story than in the newer main story. It will be interesting to see how closely this version and the old version will be. I can't say I'm completely sold on reading a monthly Turok comic but perhaps once I see more dinosaur action and get more background information, I will be. Read Full Review

    Turok: Son of Stone isn't quite the resounding success Magnus was in its first issue, but it makes for an enjoyable read all the same. Now that the premise of the series has been roughly established, Shooter has plenty of room to grow and build his characters. Hopefully he'll also find ample time for some good, old-fashioned dinosaur carnage. Read Full Review

    This issue is a very nice starting point for new readers as well as seasoned Turok fans. Shooter and Francisco are doing a great job building Turok's world. This is only the start and the sense is that things are going to get bigger and louder from here. Read Full Review
