Dynamite Signs Chuck Wendig and Alvaro Sarraseca for a New Turok Series
Dynamite Entertainment has announced that the classic pulp comic book series Turok returns with an all-new interpretation of the iconic character courtesy of writer Chuck Wendig and artist Álvaro Sarraseca. With the debut issue set for release in August 2, 2017, Turok #1 also features a bonus Doc Spektor back-up story by Aubrey Sitterson and Dylan Burnett, a continuation of the serial in the Turok sister titles, The Sovereigns and Magnus.
In the latest Turok adventure, the fascist Saurian soldiers of the Varanid Empire-part dinosaur, part man, all bad-news-have seized control of the Lost Valley, and only the mysterious dinosaur hunter Turok is willing or able to stand against them! But right now, Turok only cares about one thing: tracking down a mysterious missing girl that could hold all of the clues as to how the Lost Valley has changed from the fantastical prehistoric land readers know and love.
The debut issue of Turok features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of Aaron Lopresti, interior artist Álvaro Sarraseca, Aaron Conley, and Andy Belanger. Limited variant editions in “Black & White” and “Virgin Art” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.
Turok #1 is slated for release in August.
