Turok and Andar pierce the veil and find themselves out of time, literally, in the Lost Valley! The Kiowa warriors are surrounded by hungry dinosaurs, and their only possible allies are the cavalry soldiers sworn to capture them. But all is not as it seems in the time-lost land, and the key to solving the mystery might well be the shadowy bounty hunter dogging Turok’s trail. Dino doings from Ron Marz and Roberto Castro!

Turok (Vol.4) #2

Review: Turok #1

A new hero rises! Turok pursues his kidnapped brother… in the Badlands of the Old West! In the waning days of the Indian Wars, the U.S. cavalry has captured Andar, but Turok will stop at nothing to rescue him. But that quest will lead Turok, Andar and even the soldiers to a strange, lost land inhabited by creatures beyond their imaginations. This is Turok as you’ve never seen him before … and Turok as you’ve always seen him!

If you’ve been reading Graphic Policy’s reviews for some time, then it will probably come as no surprise to you that I’m a Valiant fan. I’ve also been delving into the original Valiant comics from the 1990’s, and one of those series I’ve been picking up is Turok back when Valiant still had the license. So when I saw that Dynamite had started publishing another series, I was curious. Curious to see whether it would be easy enough to pick up if you never touched the cancelled series from 2017 (because I missed that, too), and curious to see if it was even worth reading.

Turok #1 is written by Ron Marz with art by Roberto Castro and colours by Salvatore Aiala, and kicks off in the American West of 1873 as Turok hunts those who have taken his brother Andar captive. The comic’s plot is remarkably simplistic (even more so if you’re aware of Turok’s more traditional setting, whether from videogames or the old comics), but a simplistic plot doesn’t mean the writing is bad; it just mean that Ron Marz didn’t waste any time in getting Turok where he was bound to end up. Honestly, instead of a half an issue or so, I expected at least an arc to pass before we saw a change of scenery. Turok’s first issue is a well paced comic that dispenses with any extraneous plot points, and gets us right to the arrow tipped, uh, point.

Artistically, Roberto Castro and Salvatore Aiala are great. The (digital) pages leave you in no doubt what’s happening, or where, as the story progresses. A pleasure to read and look at, this comic has a really enjoyable feel to it; I went in expecting to get an action comic, and that’s exactly what I got. I have no complaints about this issue in any way shape or form.

Ultimately, a refreshingly fast paced comic with some solid art make Turok #1 a comic that’s just begging to be read by any who are curious.

This March Dynamite Entertainment is offering Pathfinder items that will appeal to all kinds of fans. Whether they have been tabletop gaming since 1974, just picked up their first set of dice, or just appreciate stunning statues and high quality comic book storytelling – there is something here for everyone!

First and foremost is the first-ever resin statue for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The next step in the years long strong partnership between Dynamite and Paizo Inc. following years of adapting and expanding the game’s lore in comic book form. The limited-edition statue depicts Seoni, one of the most popular heroes in the Pathfinder universe. She is a powerful Varisian spellcaster who was a no-brainer for a statue with her intricate tattoos and distinct clothing, hand-painted for collectors. 

Seoni stands approximately a foot tall and is available in multiple variants. The “Spellcasting” version depicts Seoni harnessing her unique magic abilities with a plastic effect. A “Battle Ready” edition alternately gives her a staff and an altered pose. Offered for the first time are special “Diamond Eye” variants for both. Adding real diamonds for her pupils to make Seoni really shine and sparkle on the shelf. Only available in limited quantities, the “Diamond Eye” version is a true grail for collectors.

Also releasing are four Pathfinder: Worldscape one-shots previously exclusive to Kickstarter. These fun crossovers bring Dynamite’s flagship characters into the cross-dimensional Pathfinder universe. All with covers by Roberto CastroPathfinder: Worldscape – Dejah Thoris is written by Christopher Paul Carey with art by Roberto Castro. Dejah and Tars Tarkas are investigating a gap in the memory of John Carter when they find themselves hurled across dimensions into a bloody conflict between the Council of Jungle Kings and a Technic League captain from Golarion. Dejah Thoris must use her intelligence and skills as a warrior to survive.

The Pathfinder: Worldscape – Reanimator issue is written by Erik Mona and drawn by Matt Gaudio. Herbert West suddenly finds himself surrounded by corpses of a White Martian army in Shareen’s arena. A true treat for H.P. Lovecraft’s evil genius obsessed with life and death.
