Thanks to a pair of dino-and-corresponding-name-decorated pajamas, words like "tyrannosaurus" and "triceratops" and "stegosaurus" were amongst the very first utterances from my wee two-year-old mouth. I've had a lifelong love of the big brutes, and tried to give those thunder lizards some attention on this here very blog.
And in 1988, Topps' Dinosaurs Attack! card series blew my mind. They were gleefully gory and gorily gleeful, and totally hit all my monster / apocalypse / sci-fi buttons. I knew of Mars Attacks! cards, but these had FREAKING DINOSAURS!

There was supposed to be a tie-in comic series, but only one issue ever saw print. I've still got my copy, and always lamented there weren't more.
So it comes as a great surprise when Comics Alliance reports that, this July, IDW is not only republishing that first issue, but also completing the series...with the original crew!
