Dinosaurs Attack: Day Thirty

(Click on images to view in Dino-Scope!)
Three more dino-riffic pages from the graphic novel adaptation of "Dinosaurs Attack" by Earl Norem, one of my favorite artists as a kid and young adult. He still is, of course; but it was during that time he made such a big impact with the many covers of the various magazines I bought back then... Planet of the Apes, Monsters of the Movies, The Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, and so on. Between him and Bob Larkin, my magazine shelf is full of memorable genre images.

As the dinosaur materializes completely, it begins to wreak havoc with the lives of everyone in the area. LIttle do they know that the sceanario is being replayed all over the world as the Time-Scan goes wrong, actually bringing the prehistoric creatures into our time, rather than only allowing us to view them. Talk about a miscalculation!

I love the touch in the page above, as we see the flying disembodied hands of the trucker, still clutching the steering wheel in a death grip.
