Darklyoseid has made his way to Trimyscira. Yet, the Jurassic League has yet to become a team as each member seems to engulfed in their own missions to help Wonderdon. It takes lessons from family to help one such as Supersaur to realize his greater mission is to stop Darklyoseid. He is not alone. Green Torch and the other heroes have joined him in aiding a fallen Wonderdon while the Dark Dinoknight is protecting innocent humans. Will this newly formed Jurassic League be enough to defeat Darklyoseid? The conclusion of this prehistoric battle will let us know, Superfans. Miss it, and you’ll have dinoegg on your face.
Story – 5: I know you are all tired of me saying this, but this is the most fun I’ve had reading a comic book in ages. I’ve liked some newer stuff, such as most of the main Justice League comics. However, I have found flaws upon re-reading them, and the stories don’t stand out like, say, Dan Jurgens’ Superman or Peter David’s Incredible Hulk. This is the comic I and the industry need right now. It takes a concept that seems ridiculous, works with that ridiculousness and gives the reader a comic that understands the purpose of the medium – to entertain.
Art – 5: I’ve said this a million times, but any other art style would ruin such a brilliant book. The visuals are perfect for this issue.
Cover Art – 5: The covers barely scratches the surface on the fun that awaits the reader.
Variant Cover Art – 5: The style of art isn’t normally my cup of tea, but it works for this series.
Hispanic Heritage Month Variant Cover Art – 4: The art itself is great, and it does show an Hispanic character. However, shouldn’t it also show something involving the culture as well? Maybe I’m thinking too much.
