This volume collects issues 51-53, 55, 56, 58 & 59 of the Gold Key comic book 'Turok son of Stone' from May 1966 to October 1967; "writers include" Paul S. Newman, "artists include" Alberto Giolitte and Rex Mann. Issues 54 and 57 are not included, not even the covers; I assume these were reprint issues. Issue #59 also seems to be a few pages shorter than usual.
These are the continuing adventures of two 'stone age' (American) Indians - Turok, the older, more mature and thoughtful one, and Andar, the impulsive teenage one, who tends to act before thinking, often (but not always) triggering the adventure - as they seek for an exit to the 'hidden valley' into which they have fallen. The valley is a big place, containing rivers, lakes, mountains, more valleys, and volcanoes, and is populated by primitive humanoids tribes and all the dinosaurs known to 1960's science.
The adventures contain a mix of threatening tribes, threatening dinosaurs, tribes threatened by dinosaurs or other tribes, and the occasional frustrated escape attempt. In the earlier volumes there was continuity of sorts, as the two Indians would stay with a human tribe for a few stories, before moving on, but by this volume the stories are unconnected with each other. Nothing really changes except the guest stars and the locations. Just like a 1960s American TV show. In this volume however, we do get a visit from aliens in a flying saucer, who are threatened by dinosaurs... and a recurring menace of a flock of flying reptiles (who get sucked into the air intake of the flying saucer - don't ask why a space ship needs an air intake).Read more ›

In the late 50's and early 60's this was one of my favorite comics. Great job Dark Horse in bringing back a lost treasure.

Great way to collect the original Turok series20 July 2013

Convenient collection method of stories I enjoyed growing up. Wonderful for "completest" who can't afford the cost or availability of individual issues. Too bad these volumes are pricey too, and the reproduction quality is only fair.
