Endstone – now with raptors!
Can you even comprehend the awsomeness of it all?
I mean seriously. Raptors are like pirates. Everything can be made better with the addition of raptors. And is that a feathered dinosaur? I think I just had a dinogasm.
Actually there is more than raptors. The front one is an Albataurus, older and smaller version of T-Rex. I wonder what the feathered one might be, maybe a Jurassic Park inspired Dimetrodon ? If so, it can spill poison. Between the 2 it seems to be a Deinonychus, the very one called raptor in Jurassic Park movies (tue true raptor being twice smaller).
The other ones are not detailed enough to ID them, but we can clearly understand from this that Drakyl summoned through the gateway all kinds of meat-eater he could gather from the dino era, knowing that diversity is better than number. Nice trick, Tony !
Thanks again for your comments, Fywillan.
And Darth Killer – Wow. Your knowledge of dinosaurs is excellent! Truth be told, the Tyrannosaur I think is the right size compared to Drakyl, but the raptors are deliberately drawn larger to make them more menacing (the same thing was done in Jurassic Park I believe).
Jugdging from the 3D effect, i’d say too small for a T-Rex, that’s why i suggested Albatosaur, wich is exactly the same as T-Rex except smaller. A T-Rex tooth is long enough to pierce vertically through a human skull entirely.
Jurassic Park actually has only mishshaped one of its dinausaurs : the Dimetrodon. The original one is a 4 legged one with a hudge crest on its back to absorb solar heat. The one in the films is a 2 legged one, with a sort of crest around the neck and an overall shape of velociraptor, and spills poison. Remember how the geeky traitor dies alone in his car ?
Aside from that, they mearly named “(veloci)raptor” what should be called “deynonichus” : the same as velociraptor except twice the size, and the others were good (of course, noone has any idea about the colours).
As for the knwledge, it’s not that big, i’m mearly a guy that suscribed as a teenager to a magazine about dinosaur popularization. But anything i know, even a little, i love to share it as much as i love to learn more. :p
Jon/Toadpeople = Drakyl/Raptors
Integrating both sides of the equation yields an Awesome result!
I just have to say that this is amazing, I´ve been following this comic for quite some time now and I love it. It has a bit of an air similar to that of the Chronicles of Thomas Convenant, the Unbeliever. Love the flashbacks!
Thanks for stoppin’ by. And thanks for letting me know the flashbacks are working. Sometimes I have no idea how this comic is coming across to the readers. And I’ll have to check out The Chronicles of Thomas Convenant, the Unbeliever.
I wouldn’t have said Unbeliever but I can see it.
LONG read but very good.
Oh Man, that is awesome. Lord Quandel is from St. Louis, and he has a Cardinal as his standard. One more twist on this alternate reality.
Looking back, I just noticed that on page 3 of Issue one you can see the cardinal on his chariot as well, I just never noticed it. Now I feel silly. =P
Don’t feel silly. Great catch on the detail. I’ve been waiting for someone to pick up on that.
Am I really the first? Wow, now I don’t feel so bad.
I am suddenly compelled to go back and see what else I’ve missed.
Damn you OCD and ADD!
First time reader… just caught up. Loving the comic Tony!
Raptors: Maybe the Nerd-God works for Universal Studios.
Thanks and welcome.
Tony, i must say that i have been loving this comic for awhile, but am generally too lazy to post. However, i do have the strange quirk of reading most, if not all of the comics. I totally <3 your artwork, and the flashback exposition of late seems to work well, overall.
I don't know how to reply to the posts properly, but i must point out that the "dimetrodon" in Jurassic Park was actually a dilophosaurus [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dilophosaurus]. They are about 6-7 feet tall, and have a crest. In the book, they were described more or less accurately, physically, but it is unknown whether they spit poison. Oddly enough, this dinosaur was featured in the old Texas Instruments Voyager toy, in its Dinosaur / Prehistoric Animals cartridge, which is the first place that i ever learned of this particular animal, around age five. ^_^
I just had to point that out. ^^;;; You may now return to your regularly scheduled comic and comments.
..And wow, i just noticed the reply option. This is where i blame that oversight on the fact that it’s about 4am….. >.>
Also, by crest i meant a bony head crest, not a frill like the movies.
Kirby dots FTW.
