It’s no mystery why fans will love CAP’N DINOSAUR
Posted on April 21, 2014 by Kat Salazar
Writer Kek-W (2000 AD, Rudy Rucker’s FLURB) and artist Shaky Kane (THE BULLETPROOF COFFIN) take the law into their own hands and bring readers a complete, all-new, CAP’N DINOSAUR tale in this one-shot issue.
An homage to the classic comics, CAP’N DINOSAUR pulls inspiration from mail-order-advertisements found in comic series of the 1950s and 1960s. When a mysterious drowned man falls out of the clear blue sky, The Cap’n and Honey Moon follow a trail which leads them to a deserted amusement park, but what they find will take readers’ breath away.
“Half the fun of old comic books were the mail order adverts,” said Kane. “So I figured that if the mail order adverts were to somehow feature in the story itself, well then you'd get the full fun!”
"Shaky and I are trying to channel a free-wheeling old school spirit—harness the strangenessthat used to infect comics back in the late 50s and early 60s,” elaborated Kek-W. “We want to inject some fun back into things. Reality is overrated!"
CAP’N DINOSAUR (One-Shot) arrives in stores on 7/16, and will be available for $3.99. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140606.
