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.

Magnus Returns in an All-New Series

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Magnus, the comic book series with futuristic action and cybernetic intrigue, returns with an all-new interpretation of the character courtesy of writer Kyle Higgins and artist Jorge Fornés. With a debut issue set for release in June, Magnus #1 includes a bonus Turok back-up story by Chuck Wendig and Álvaro Sarraseca, a continuation of the serial in the Magnus sister title, The Sovereigns.

The all-new Magnus takes the famous Philip K. Dick question and turns it on its side: Do humans dream of owning electric sheep? Artificial intelligences, rather than becoming our overlords, have settled into an uneasy symbiosis with humanity – they work for us as our colleagues and servants, earning vacation-time they spend in a boundless digital universe running on human-maintained server farms. But not all A.I.s are cool with the deal. Enter Magnus, a human psychologist tasked with navigating both worlds in order to bring recalcitrant AIs back into productive society…

The debut issue of Magnus features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice!

Dark Horse To Debut Turok At San Diego Comic-Con!

Official Press Release

DARK HORSE TO UNVEIL THE FIRST LOOK AT TUROK, SON OF STONE®, AT COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL!

CREATIVE TEAM BEHIND NEW GOLD KEY LINE ANNOUNCED

JULY 21, SAN DIEGO, CA–Building on the success of the Dark Horse Gold Key line, today the Company announced that it would provide the comic world with the very first look at the highly-anticipated Turok, Son of Stone®, comic at this week’s Comic-Con International 2010 in San Diego, CA.  News of the line was first announced at Comic Con International 2009, and fans have been anxiously awaiting details ever since.

Perhaps the best-known character in the iconic Gold Key line, Turok has been highly visible in the public eye in recent years, following its incredibly successful video game franchise, as well as the acclaimed feature length animated, Turok: Son of Stone.

Now, Turok returns to the comic book world helmed by comic book veteran, Jim Shooter, with art by Eduardo Francisco (Mass Effect: Incursion), and incredible covers by Raymond Swanland (Magnus: Robot Fighter, Aliens vs. Predator), arriving in your local comic shop this October.

“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.”

Fans are encouraged to attend the Dark Horse publishing panel on Friday, July 23rd at 11:30am in Room 3, for exclusive news on Turok, and rest of the Gold Key titles.
