The most bizarre “Homecoming” in Gold Key Universe history and a shock ending for those who have been following this book since #1 are just a sample of the highlights awaiting you in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter #6.

Continuing to release his inner Roy Thomas, writer Greg Pak weaves a Conan-esque tale of mystery with a lot of dino-doing for those who love such things. More of Batman than Conan this issue, though, are all the unanswered questions which keep this wacky history lesson moving forward.

Who knew this was all happening in Illinois in 1210? I was thinking maybe Vikings ...

Pak has introduced a set of characters in this Gold Key revamp that are absolutely mesmerizing, and although I thought they would be hard to follow just the opposite has been true. Aiding and abetting this is, of course, the excellent art of Takeshi Miyazawa. Can this artist draw dinos or not? And those closeup facial expressions that have become such a signature part of this series already are handled deftly while the storytelling never suffers.

I see only good things for Turok – the book, not the character. He was confused enough as it was. Wait until this issue’s climax!
