Age of Reptiles Travels to Ancient Egypt


Richard Delgado's work on Age of Reptiles was lauded. Those accolades included an Eisner Award, which is more than enough to merit a return to his work in a brand new series. This June, Dark Horse will release Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians, pairing Delgado up with Ryan Hill.

The gorgeous and brutal series returns, marking a bold new direction in wordless storytelling. The steaming swamps of Cretaceous Africa teem with prehistoric life and primordial danger in a tale filled with villains, victims, and one of the most dangerous and unpredictable protagonists ever created: the lonely antihero Spinosaurus aegyptiacus.

Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians #1 hits stores on June 3. Full press release below.
