First appearing in 1978’s Devil Dinosaur #1, Devil Dinosaur was created by the great Jack Kirby, the character has fallen out of the public eye of late. That’s probably going to change this month as Marvel gear up to release Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 this month.
The idea of a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex with human level intelligence is both terrifying and amazing all at once. This series has the potential to be either a fantastic tale of two unlikely friends facing off against the world in one of the more unique takes on that premise, or a comic about a giant dinosaur in modern times.
Either way, I’m intrigued. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 will be released on November 25th.
Preview from Graphic Policy.
