    CHUCK WENDIG talks TUROK #2, on sale in SEPTEMBER from Dynamite!

    Turok's raid on Terminal Prison has gone according to plan - but now he must face the prison's fiercest guard - Karkaro, a terrifying war-dinosaur bred only for battle! Now the Dinosaur Hunter becomes the hunted!

    Also in TUROK #2: Doc Spektor, Part 5! The story of the all-new master (and we use the term lightly) sorcerer continues ... as Doc gets jumped by two of Hurgn's goons - and meets his roommate Frankie's new girlfriend!

    Let's hear from Chuck!

    BYRON BREWER: Chuck, how are you enjoying working with your iteration of the iconic Turok character for Dynamite?

    CHUCK WENDIG: It’s buckets of fun.

    BB: How do you manage to keep that classic “feel” about the Dinosaur Hunter while still working in this framework for today’s reader?

    CW: It’s mostly an act of trying to write a great, fun comic that’s in the spirit of the original while at the same time updating and upgrading to what are ostensibly more modern sensibilities. Though mostly, I don’t concentrate too hard on that – I just try to write a cool comic people will dig.

    BB: In September’s issue #2, the Hunter becomes the hunted! Tell us what you can about this turn of events and the pure fun of the plot.

    CW: My greatest desire in the world is to pit a character against a giant carnivorous dinosaur, and the majority of this issue is dedicated to exactly that. If I could include a MAN VERSUS DINOSAUR fight in every story I wrote, I would.

    BB: How awesome is Karkaro?! The name itself sounds like a flarkin’ sound effect! Tell us what you can about this unique Turok adversary.

    CW: Karkaro is the mount of the prison’s warden and... honestly, I think it gives T-Rex a run for its money. The name alone sounds like something that should be fighting Godzilla.

    BB: Turok is front and center in this solo book, yes, but what other characters should readers watch? Any prove central as the series progresses?

    CW: Nettle and Marak will continue on as part of this arc, at least – I think they’re a lot of fun, with a lot of banter, and some deeper reasons for being who they are and coming along for the ride.

    BB: What does artist Álvaro Sarraseca bring to the dino-table?

    CW: Basically everything! Without Alvaro, the work wouldn’t have that hook.

    BB: MORE dinosaurs??

    CW: I mean, obviously!

    BB: Chuck, what other projects are keeping you occupied?

    CW: Writing my THE STAND meets STATION ELEVEN novel, EXEUNT, and prepping for an October release of my new writing book, DAMN FINE STORY.

    Hey guys, thanks for ruining Turok for me. A totally unique character gone. Well that’s $4 I’ll be saving.
