Super Dinosaur Volume 1 (Super Dinosaur #1)
I brought this on a weekend trip we took together, and found myself constantly reading the cheesy dialogue aloud to her.
I'm talking about gems like:
"Sorry I'm late to the party -- but, good news -- I BROUGHT MISSILES!"
"My gloves hold all kinds of awesome stuff we use to fight these guys. I made them, too. I'm totally awesome."
It's about this kid, who lives with his dad and an "altered," intelligent TRex in a secret base on Mount Rainier. Extra poi ...more
I tried to read this on the adobe reader (not pdf) that I downloaded but it was a little hard to read the panel. I finally figured out how to get it on my kindle. I love it. The pictures are phenomenal. My little guy (4) can’t read yet but he was looking at the panel making his own s ...more

This was truly wonderful. We jump right in with battle scenes between genetically altered dinosaurs, who are part robot, and Derek Dynamo. Then we are switched back to the lab where Super Dinosaur (SD to his friends) quickly starts talking about his machinery. This leaves the reader somewhat out of the loop but as the events and dialogue continue w ...more

The three main characters in this book are Derek Dynamo, a ten year old boy who fights Max Maximus along wit his talking t-rex, Super Dinosaur and Dr. Dynamo Derek's father. The three live together in an fortress in the mountains.
All around, this is a great story, good, clean fun. Though there is some violence, it is minimal with the good ...more
There was something decidedly unpolished to me about this work. The artwork was solid, but not fantastic. It suffers from some of the common ills, people being too fit and young in general, characters not standing out, etc.
But, it is amazing for its target audience. Young men will love this. Dinosaurs, technology, fighting, dinosaurs with guns strapped to them, the word awesome. In general it's ok, but for late grammar and middle school boys, there will be few better graphic novels.

So color me disappointed when I realized, as I kept reading, that I found myself sort of bored by it all. There's no reason this should be boring - the concept is too out there and fun for it - but it is.
An interesting story about Super Dinosaur and Derek Dynamo. A fun adventure of a 10-year-old boy and his talking dinosaur. He also plays basketball.
TWD creator Robert Kirkman will most likely turn this into a movie by joining with Pixar.
