'Age of Reptiles: The Journey' #1 of 4
Writting and pencils: Ricardo Delgado
Colors: Jim Campbell
 
Who knew that dinosaurs could relay so much emotion? Delgado's ability to allow his art work to tell the story for him is impeccable; something I am sure is not very easy to achieve. The transitions between scenes and the build-up to the climax is perfect as far as organization is concerned, and the first issue will leave you wanting more. The limited amount of dialogue manages to captivate and arouse emotion and caters to comic book art fans. If you are like me, you will likely read this issue more than once and in doing so will catch details you may have missed the first time around. I imagine that by utilizing only art to tell the story is a relatively tedious task, and to get the expressions of these dinosaurs even more-so, but are two attributes to Delgado's story-telling capability which shows he has mastered perfectly in this first issue. By far one of the best comics I have read this year, the first issue of 'Age of the Dinosaurs' is one that I feel true comic book art fans will fall in love with.
