If you know that "honkers" means "dinosaurs," this is the archive collection you've been waiting for! This deluxe collection contains the first six issues of Turok, Son of Stone: Dell Four Color Comics #596 and #656; issues #3-#6 of the Turok series.
Two young American Indians stumble upon a valley where the creatures of Earth's prehistoric past still thrive. Cut off from their tribe, Turok and Andar must find a way to survive attacks from deadly honkers and encounters with savage bands of cavemen, holding out hope that one day they will discover a way back home . . .
"Hoppers" (and later, "honkers" meant just one thing to comics readers from the fifties to the eighties: dinosaurs! And these particular dinosaurs inhabited a volcanic lost valley somewhere in the American southwest, along with prehistoric mammals, prehistoric men (and submen), and two lost Indians. Every issue of Turok, Son of Stone would see Turok and his friend Andar pitted against the terrifying creatures from Earth's distant past. Having no names for the gigantic reptiles which pursued them, they referred to them by the monsters' most obvious traits. Armed only with courage, their wits, and their newly discovered secret for applying poison to their arrowheads, Turok and Andar led a life of adventure and peril that captured the imaginations of kids everywhere. And did we mention the dinosaurs?
Here, collected for the first time, are the first six seminal issues of one of the great American comic-book series.
