Check out the tremendous reviews Dynamite has received for Turok #1!
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Newsarama) – " Each iteration of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter sees the creative team putting their own take on what's basically a man-versus-nature story. Writer Greg Pak takes some of the best lessons from Planet Hulk and creates a Turok that is among his people, but still very much an outsider. It's refreshing to read the character still so new to the world he will soon inherit. However, the real star of this comic is artist Mirko Colak. His line work sets a fantastic tone for the book and drafts a world that feels very much alive, both in beauty and brutality. His inks balance perfectly with smart coloring choices by Laureen Affe. While Pak's dialog reads a little choppy at times, the twist and art more than raises Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1 to a must-read.”
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Comic Book Resources) – "As Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1 closes, the setting comes into clearer focus, giving readers a sense for the where and the when, but the what remains a mystery and has promised to pack an adventure-filled picnic basket for lunch.”
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Newsarama) – “We love the classics and are always a bit hesitant when those classics are revamped and repackaged with a shiny new cover and presented to us all over again. As someone who’s only exposure to this character is by controlling him in a 64-bit video game, this comic serves as a great introduction to Turok’s personality and the world that he inhabits. Gone is the running and gunning tough guy that I played in the video game and in his place is a sensitive, relatable outcast in a dangerous world - he is every bit of a classic hero. Pak uses simple storytelling techniques to tell a compelling story, and coupled with the slick art of Colak and Affe, we are presented with a great introduction to Turok and this line of classic books.”
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (IGN Comics) – "Pak keeps the dinos at bay so we can spend some time getting to know Turok, which really pays off. There's a ton of heart in this first issue as we see the pain and burden that the character carries. His world feels real, even though it's one completely foreign to us. It's not immediately clear why this otherwise straight forward tale has dinosaurs in it, but if your hook is “There are dinosaurs here!” then you can sign me up. This is just a great comic book. It's well written, fully realized and, oh yeah, it has dinosaurs in it. Dinosaurs with feathers.”
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Comics Spectrum) – "Dynamite action & explosive storytelling get the Gold Key relaunch off to a great start. Pak’s story and Colak’s art blended perfectly to draw me into Turok’s world. The last two pages of the issue were the icing on the cake adding in an additional story element that I’m going to love seeing played out over the course of the series. We have something here that is respectful of its roots but completely fresh. I’m on board for this series and am looking forward to seeing the other titles in Dynamite’s Gold Key relaunch; Pak and Colak have set the bar pretty high for the other titles debuting soon."
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Unleash the Fanboy) – “Pak added some action to the issue as well, but it was the build-up of character along with the symbolism that I enjoyed the most. Mirko Colak did an astonishing job of the artwork. The detail and layouts were particularly impressive, as despite having a lot of scenery it was still very smooth and realistic. Turok opens the Golden Key Universe nicely and if the remaining three series are like this I will be a very happy fanboy. Highly recommended."
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Graphic Policy) – "The Gold Key Universe begins here as Dynamite brings back numerous classic characters such as Turok, Magnus, Dr. Spektor, and Solar, with some amazing talent. First up is Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #1 courtesy of writer Greg Pak and artist Mirko Colak.”
TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 (Bagged and Bored) – "Colak’s art is beautiful, and he captures the natural setting with beautiful tones by Lauren Affe. I have high hopes for this series. With Pak at the helm we can expect that the story will be entertaining and high energy. Even if there end up being no bionic dinosaurs I’m sure that Dynamite will continue their successful rebooting of comic characters."

Dynamite; $3.99 According to Thomas Wolfe, “You can’t go home again.” But Mr. Wolfe didn’t mention anything about going home to your past. In the first issue of Twilight Zone a successful writer flies back to his hometown for a book signing. What he finds is more than he anticipated when he finds himself face to face with his younger self. Upon encountering his younger self, he must decide if he should help the troubled, abused boy or leave him to suffer knowing what the future holds after that suffering is endured. The story written by Mark Rahner is very interesting both for its philosophical and ethical quandary. The question posed to this man is one anybody would struggle to answer. On top of that is the eerie, unsettling feeling leading up to these moments. The weight of the title is enough to warn readers that this plane ride will not be the usual trip. Edu Menna’s art aides the story by drawing characters with haggard visages, setting the tone for a story both complicated and thought provoking. This first issue comes with covers by Guiu Vilanova, Francesco Francavilla, Jay Shaw, and Jonathan Lau.
