    Once again: can't wait!
    and hopefully the art on this will be better than Mags and Solar...

    It doesn't really sound like there are plans to bring these characters together in time... seems like that'd be tough. I guess Solar could be the time-traveling link that holds it all together, but having Solar show up in a classic Turok book seems... difficult.

    I'll just trust Shooter to do what he does and make some rad comics. :)

    I love bringing back the older characters who have fallen by the wayside and reinventing them. Good for Jim Shooter, I really look forward this this launch.

    This seems like the toughest sell of the 3 Shooter books but I am willing to give it a shot. It's so strange to me to be hearing about The Lost Land and all that and not have Erica Pierce or the bionosaurs and that stuff play into it at all. I really hope eventually that an agreement can be reached where that stuff can be added in.

    Really, the only hope of that happening is if Valiant Entertainment folds. With their next to zero output, that doesn't seem like a far stretch at this point.

    It's been years now and nothing except a couple of hardcover reprints.

    No movies, no comics or video games, no announcements....nothing.

    Someone is going to pull the plug on them.

    I'd love to see Dark Horse or DC buy them out.

    I always get hesitant when dealing with Native American characters. Vary few people know to write them with out using stereotypes. Like every native is an expert tracker and has mystical powers. Now there are way to many Native American groups to get everything right but Shooter pointed out that Turok is a Pre-Columbian Native American from the Northeast. That narrows it down a bit, at least to the point that my wife of Northeast Native American dissent is going to give me hell for reading this book if there is anything that doesnít jive for her. It also doesnít help that my father in law is a professor of Native American studies who specialize in the portrayal of Native Americans in media. I foresee there is going to be a few Wednesdays that Iím sleeping on the couch.

    Ummm, good luck? I'm sure that they'll treat Turok in a respectful way, and try to avoid being stereotypical. But, I think there's a good chance he'll be tracking. Admittedly, it's just a guess but I hope that couch of yours is roomy.

    Post Shooter on "Turok"

    I just hope that the pre Lost Land wandering of Turok is explored since it sounds very interesting and explains some of the details not fully explained in the Gold Key era comics. Bringing in the Valiant era cyber enhanced dinosaurs is a bad idea and I would drop Turok in a second if that starts showing up.If done properly this character ranks with the best of Edgar Rice Burroughs or Haggard or Conan Doyle.

    I'm pretty eager about this. The only Turok that I know of was through the N64 games.

    Anyone seen the Turok, Son of Stone animated film with Adam Beach??I watched a little on youtube and stopped watching, because of the awesoness. I'm gonna try to find it on DVD to continue watching it.

    YES!!!! It is so worth it!

    Great action, and it does not pull any punches. It's a great ride, but it's not for kids though...too violent!

    It was actually this film that got me really interested to see some more Classic Turok. I did buy some Valiant "modern" Turok comics, but it's not the same. I think Turok is like Conan. They both work best in their original setting.

    I was pretty surprise how violent it was, but I just gotta find for now. Not too long ago I was gonna buy one of the Valiant comics, but I too was kind of turned down by the "Modern" feel it had. It was on $2 bucks too.
