Ricardo Delgado’s wordless tale of survival continues in this exciting new installment of the multiple Eisner Award–winning series! Has the lonely and lethal Spinosaurus aegyptiacus found a mate? And if so, will our tenacious hero’s romantic interlude even last long? Packs of hungry predators are circling!
Right now is definitely a good time in the world of all things dinosaurs. With the latest box office smash and this book devoted to the ancient beasts, I’m like a kid again. Although, I’m sure I wouldn’t have appreciated issue three of Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians as much as I do being an adult.
The ferocious Spinosaurus has gotten into his share of fights, but now he fights for more than himself. With a mate to protect and a family to grow, he will face off against a whole pack of predators if necessary. It’s a..well a dino eat dino world? That sounded better in my head. The point is, it’s a world where instinct is all that rules, no matter how harsh.
This issue is going to have to be the best artistically in my opinion. Every book has had excellent artwork, but this one was on top. It’s odd to say action scenes relating to dinosaurs, but there were some here and they were done wonderfully. Also, as morbid as it is, one scene involving the brutal death of a dinosaur just looked perfect.
With just one more issue to go, I’m a little sad that it’s ending so soon. On a good note though, I do have the other titles Delgado has done that I could always look for. It’s something I’m sure will be well worth it, and is something everyone else should experience as well.
