Today Dark Horse released the first Turok, Son of Stone hardcover collection which collects Turok’s first six appearances, Dell Four Color No. 596, Dell Four Color No. 656 and Turok, Son of Stone No. 3 – 6 PLUS a very great introduction by artist William Stout. Each reprinted issue features two stories featuring Turok and Andar, two Mandan indians who discover a cavern that eventually leads them to a valley that is inhabited by prehistoric animals and men. Turok is established very early on as being smart, observant, and methodical (Saving Andar from drinking poisoned water, learning how to add a poison coating to their arrows). His side kick Andar is established early on as being loud mouthed and impatient, constantly scaring away the native men and complaining about being hungry. At one point Andar even says, “Ugh! When are we going to reach some trees? I’d feel better if there were some trees to climb!”
Which really only made me equate him to a cat or something.

And beneath the dust jacket lies a minimalistic work of beauty. I can’t stress enough how much fun I’m having with this book. The stories are wild and imaginative and clever with some really fantastic art work. At $49.99 it’s very pricey, however, I do not feel cheated at all. If you think you are someone who could enjoy some nice light hearted stories about two indians fighting dinosaurs, I can’t recommend this book enough.

Story: 5 - Excellent
Art: 4 - Very Good


  1. Great review…. hopefully it can cause some here to look up from their Ellis, Bendis, or whomever else we see too much of these days and enjoy some classic comic goodness!
