The first situation of Daniel Warren Johnson, Juan Gedeon, and Mike Spicer‘s DC Comics series Jurassic League is set to drop next month. The six-issue miniseries imagines a world where the iconic heroes and villains of the DC Universe are all dinosaurs. Yesterday DC released an expanded first look at the series debut issue, including the introduction of dinosaur Aquaman, as well as the issue’s 1:25 variant cowl by the legendary Walter Simonson, which options Batman and The Joker as dinosaurs, and if that sounds superior to you then you might be clearly an individual who understands what phrases imply.

Contrary to what The Flintstones would have us imagine, people and dinosaurs weren’t round on the identical time. And I hear that, I actually do. But additionally, cease it. We’re speaking a few dinosaur model of Batman. If you’re in search of historic accuracy in your dinosaur superhero cape comics, I might counsel perhaps simply not studying dinosaur superhero cape comics.
