End of the first arc, by Greg Pak (Batman/Superman, Action Comics) and Mirko Colak (Conan)! Turok's out of options... he's learned how to tame some of the thunder lizards, but his tribe is in shambles and the invading dinosaurs will soon overwhelm everything he holds dear. Will Turok break a promise to himself, and delve further into the forest for help?

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott May 7, 2014

    This issue ties up a pretty great first arc. If you've been sticking around the whole time, I think we're in for a lot more fun. If you're looking for a good place to jump on, keep your eyes on the shelves next month, true believers (I don't know if I'm allowed to say that, but I'm doing it anyway). Read Full Review

    The first arc of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter comes to an end and though a part of me feels that this arc needed an extra issue it does end on a high having me hooked for more. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - CJ Yudelson May 8, 2014

    This issue is mostly a rollercoaster of action and the creative team does a fine job expanding Turok's fighting strategy. We have seen our hero as tactician with his natural environment, using traps and snares in the past issues. Pak and company go a step further depicting Turok as not necessarily just a Dinosaur "hunter" per say, rather one that has the stones to manipulate, utilize, and challenge them like no one else can. A perfect example of this was his taming of the raptor like "fire drake" dinosaur and riding it like an absolute boss following the charging T-Rex towards the enemy camp. Although I would have liked to see a hint to what is coming next, the ending of the issue is satisfying. It is to Pak's credit that he found an ending which almost made this feel like the conclusion of a mini series with it's full circle approach. A good issue rounds out a solid start to Turok Dinosaur Hunter and I cant wait to see where it goes next. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Logan Dalton May 7, 2014

    The problems with Colak's art detract from the reading experience, but Pak ends the first arc of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter in an action-packed fashion while still remaining true to his protagonist's outsider nature. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 12, 2014

    This issue closes out the first arc solidly, but doesn't conclude the story of the Crusaders, the dinosaurs or Turok. There is still plenty of story to be told as the Crusaders, Native Americans and dinosaurs continue to figure out how to survive in this strange world that has brought them all together. By the end of "Turok: Dinosaur Hunter" #4, the subtitle has a completely different meaning than what is usually associated with Turok and this series is at a point where Turok's continuing journey is set to change. Pak and Colak have set up a unique lot in life for Turok, now I'm looking forward to see how they continue to grow the character and his surroundings. Read Full Review
