This June, winner of Eisner awards for Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition and Best Limited Series, Age of Reptiles returns with a sequel. The story is entitled, Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians from Dark Horse Comics, written and illustrated by Ricardo Delgado, with colors by Ryan Hill (Effigy). The bold new wordless storytelling book will take place in the steaming swamps of Cretaceous Africa. Prehistoric life, villains, victims, and one of the most dangerous and unpredictable protagonists ever created: the lonely antihero Spinosaurus aegyptiacus, will be featured in the story.
For those of you who don't know, the Age of Reptiles series originally consisted of two comics, which are both set in the Mesozoic era. Tribal Warfare, which focused on a pack of Deinonychus getting revenge on a Tyrannosaurus who stole their meal, and The Hunt, which told the tale of an Allosaurus who takes revenge on a pack of Ceratosaurs for killing his mother when he was young. A third book was published years later, entitled The Journey, which followed the migration of a herd of dinosaurs. All of the stories are wordless, and illustrated in an incredibly beautiful way. Just looking at the cover of Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians, you can see Delgado's original way of detailing these spectacular dinosaurs. Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians #1 will go on sale June 3rd.
