Dark Horse announced it will be showing off art and will provide other information regarding the October release of the Turok, Son of Stone series. The book was originally announced at Comic Con International 2009, and we had not heard anything else about it since then. While we don’t have any art right now, we do know that Jim Shooter will write with Eduardo Francisco on art duties.
“Turok was one of my favorite comics in my youth,” said Mike Richardson, president of Dark Horse Comics. “We’re having great fun re-imagining the series with Jim and we are building up to some great surprises for those familiar with the character as well as new readers.”
“One continuum over from ours, Earth is still in its Cretaceous Period,” Jim Shooter explained. “However, a drifting rift in spacetime is sweeping things from anywhen here to there. It’s a dangerous place. How strong, how tough, how smart would you have to be to survive, to thrive, to become a force to be reckoned with? This is a story about about a fearless man who will find a way. I love this series.”
Dark Horse will reveal more during their publishing panel on Friday, July 23, 2010 at 11:30 AM in Room 3.
