Artistically Rendered Dinosaurs Squee Alert – Preview Age Of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians #1 From Dark Horse

Posted by May 11, 2015 Comment

Richard Delgado both writes and draws silent giant reptile dramas. That sentence alone should make you pause and think about the great things that can happen in comics. Oh, and his dinosaurs are absolutely gorgeously drawn in fine lines and pastel colors. If this had been your coloring book as a kid, you would have been all over it, you know it.

Only here we actually get the chance to follow the silent, often enraged drama and interaction of these creatures. One thing I love about this series is not just that it’s beautiful, but that you have to closely pay attention to the visual cues to “read” and follow it. It really engages reader interaction. In the new series, Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians, we’re traveling to Africa during the Cretaceous period for our show.


Dark Horse describe the return of Delgado’s series thus:

Ricardo Delgado’s gorgeous and brutal Age of Reptiles series returns, marking a bold new direction in wordless storytelling! The steaming swamps of Cretaceous Africa teem with prehistoric life and primordial danger in a tale filled with villains, victims, and one of the most dangerous and unpredictable protagonists ever created: the lonely antihero Spinosaurus aegyptiacus!

And here’s our gorgeous, fearsome preview courtesy of Dark Horse:
