Don't get me wrong, the art was awesome, but I really had trouble following the story and characters (there were way too many characters). I got the overall gist, but there was all this other stuff going on and it was just too much. And sometimes the flow of the art did not follow the flow of the story, a bit jarring at times. Definitely worth looking at for the drawings though, great dinosaur art.

When I first read this, I was a little non-plussed; lots of dinosaurs, lots of blood. My kids (8, 5 and 3) were just stuck in it...they wouldn't put it down! So I decided I had better do a more thorough read-through. As I started to talk about the pictures with the kids, I got more and more out of the story. It is a masterful story without words, especially using realistic looking reptiles as leading characters. Although it remains a very violent and bloody story, by the time I got to the end, t ...more

Kind of great for a book about dinosaur gang wars.
If you have any interest in sequential art, this masterpiece is a must read. It contains no text at all - just art, telling a story.

Also, although this book is pretty old, the dinosaurs are still surprisingly modern. Some even have feathers - pretty controversial back when this was written!

Do yourself a favor - track down a copy of this out of print book, and enjoy!
A fairly fun, quick read that used no speech. It was about groups of raptors and T-Rexes competing long ago. It was a pretty neat story, and did well with telling a story without words, but I didn't really get much out of it.

The coolest thing about it was the fact that it did effectively tell a somewhat complex story without a word of narration or dialogue.
The art in this second Age of Reptiles volume is still amazing, even if this one - also a 'silent' visual story - is harder to follow than the first one. Also... there's something a little hard to swallow as far as the basic premise of the plot goes, but if you're willing to totally overlook that, it's a good read; especially if you enjoyed the first book at all.
Man. Great story using no words. The pain and suffering of such a kill or be killed lifestyle... crazy! Too bad the raptors kept getting their butts kicked! This novel has love, pain, jealously, power struggles, happiness, curiosity, and irony. too good!
Wish I still had these comics issues from publisher Dark Horse... so, I'll have to replace my copy!
Delgado's dinosaur fictions are amazing.
You must read this.
Highest recommendation.

Recommends it for: people who like words, pictures and dinosaurs
It's amazing how well the story is told with next to no characterization. Just another day for the dinosaurs. Though that last page (no fair skipping ahead!!) is a stunner...
A wordless graphic novel that tells the tale of a feud between a pack of Velociraptors and T-Rexs. The art and colouring are both exceptional.
Beautiful artwork and a meaningful story which was sometimes hard to follow due to the wordless narrative.
Incredible dinosaur artwork, reminiscent of William Stout. Great story, too.
Can I really say I read this?
