JURASSIC PARK Returns In Comic Book Form


Remember Jurassic Park, the original? Think back, way back, really let the mind travel to that era. Got it? Good, now try and remember how good that film was. Funny, exciting, a real classic Steven Spielberg thrill ride. Jump ahead many years and what are we left with? The taste of two god awful sequels nearly washing out the sumptuous flavors of the original. Many of us had thought (and prayed) that Jurassic Park would just go the way of the dinosaur but in recent years rumors started to spill about there being another movie. It was on it was off it was on it was off, the movie became like a virgin on prom night making promises to her boyfriend about the back of the limo. Now it looks like Jurassic Park fans will have to settle for a hand job in the alley behind the gymnasium because the next Jurassic Park sequel will be in comic book form.

Yep, apparently the dinosaurs will roam the earth again but betwixt the pages of an IDW series. The plot is as follows: It’s been 13 years since little Tim and Lex Murphy escaped from the island of Isla Nublar, and recent public opinion has reversed,with the world clamoring for authorities to re-open Jurassic Park! While Tim and Lex try to preserve the Hammond family name, a secret deal is hatched to open a new park! This time they’ll get it right… right?. It's being scripted by new comer Bob Schrek with Nate Van Dyke on the interiors. Just to make sure this bitch sells the covers are being handled by big time artists including Frank Miller on issue #1. Check it out.

Arthur Adams on issue #2, Paul Pope on issue #3, Bernie Wrightson on issue #4 and Bill Stout on issue #5. Jurassic Park the comic hits stores in June
