Everybody Love Dinosaurs, Especially SUPER DINOSAUR

Official Press Release

Earlier this year, best selling author Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD, INVINCIBLE, THE INFINITE) and artist Jason Howard (ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN) created an energetic all ages hit comic starring a boy genius and a genetically modified Tyrannosaurus Rex that was met with multiple sell outs and critical acclaim. Now Image Comics is now collecting the adventures of Derek Dynamo, Super Dinosaur, and their friends into one action-packed book of awesomeness!

SUPER DINOSAUR, VOL. 1 TP will be on sale in late November, in time for holiday gift shopping. It will include all the single issues through #5, as well as the SUPER DINOSAUR ORIGIN SPECIAL #1, for only $9.99.

“Since becoming a parent, I wanted to create a comic book that parents can read with their kids or that kids can pick up and read on their own,” said Kirkman. “We also wanted to create a comic that’s appropriate for younger kids but doesn’t talk down to them, so it will interest older readers as well!”

In SUPER DINOSAUR, VOL. 1 TP, the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of a ten year-old kid and his best friend, a nine-foot tall Tyrannosaurus Rex who loves to play video games. The Evil Max Maximus wants to get to Inner-Earth! He wants the dinosaurs that live there! He wants the powerful DynOre mineral that originates there! Super Dinosaur and Derek Dynamo are the only ones who can stop him!

SUPER DINOSAUR, VOL. 1 TP (SEP110433, ISBN: 978-1-60706-420-6), a 128-page full-color all ages action adventure trade paperback for $9.99, will be on sale in stores November 23. For more information about the awesomeness that is Super Dinosaur, visit http://superdinosaur.com/.

Robert Kirkman is a New York Times bestselling author known for being the cultural zeitgeist of the comic book industry. Following the grassroots success of the self-published BATTLE POPE (2000), Kirkman caught the eye of Image Comics founding partner Erik Larsen. After several short-term projects (SUERPATRIOT and TECHJACKET), he achieved superstar status in 2003 with INVINCIBLE and THE WALKING DEAD. During a subsequent stint at Marvel Comics, he gained many new fans with the haunting and hilarious Marvel Zombies. MTV translated Kirkman’s INVINCIBLE into a motion comic — one of the first in a growing industry trend. Kirkman’s SKYBOUND imprint, under the Image Comics umbrella, is committed to fostering up-and-coming talent in the industry, and all acquisitions are hand-picked by Kirkman himself. Kirkman won the 2010 Eisner Award for Best Continuing Series for THE WALKING DEAD. AMC’s interpretation of the comic has received glowing reviews from critics and fans alike, and continues to garner the highest ratings for the network, making it a game changer for groundbreaking television on cable.
