It’s one of the most beautiful books that Dark Horse are currently producing, and that’s saying something. That book is Ricardo Delgado’s Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians, the wordless comic layered in amazing linework that takes us through the lives of dinos living in the are of Egypt millenia ago. The second issue arrives on July 1st. It’s a beautiful book both for adults and children and also a great way to engage kids in learning to construct wordless narratives through observation.
I feel a pretty extreme squee factor just looking at this cover:
Ricardo Delgado delivers a stunning, elaborate prehistoric parable that evokes classic spaghetti westerns and noble samurai tales of yore! Traveling through a dense swamp teeming with primordial danger, a solitary Spinosaurus aegyptiacus is the unpredictable and deadly antihero of Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians.
And here’s our massive 8 page preview of Issue #2:
