RUMBLE IN THE CRETACEOUS
Man meets dinosaur in TYRANNOSAURUS REX one-shot from Image Comics
Berkeley, CA – 16 November 2010 – In February, Image Comics gets prehistoric with TYRANNOSUARUS REX, a one shot from Mark Kidwell (’68, Frazetta’s Dark Kingdom) and Jay Fotos (’68, Frazetta’s Death Dealer), with art by Jeff Zornow (Day of the Dead: Desertion, Halloween Comics, Fright Rags) and Fotos.
In TYRANNOSAURUS REX, man and dinosaur share the food chain. The delicate balance between the two is destroyed one fateful day, leaving one man to face the eternally deadly Tyrant Lizard. This man will risk it all to defend his village, save his tribe, and protect his lady-love, fur bikini and all!
“This project hit home on satisfying any giddy child-like fantasies,” says Fotos. “I told myself that if I could make a dinosaur comic, the main influences would be a lifetime of Ray Harryhausen flicks, the image of Raquel Welch in a fur bikini, and a heaping helping of Warner Brothers Looney Tunes. It’s all non-stop dino-carnage in TYRANNOSAURUS REX!”
TYRANNOSAURUS REX ($3.99, DEC100446), a 32-page full-color one shot comic book from Image Comics, will be in stores February 9, 2011.
