Release Date: April 3, 2013
Cover Price: $2.99

Super Dinosaur #18 is just what it sets out to be: an entertaining, fun, all-ages comic book. Nothing more, nothing less.

Writer/Creator Robert Kirkman tells a great story in this issue. I’m not talking about a deep, dark, depressing one, or one that will change your life or make you think from a different perspective at all. NO, if you’re looking for that, go pick up a copy of Watchmen. Or Blankets. Or anything else, because all you’ll find here is full tilt, awesome, bad ass fun! Kids of ALL ages will enjoy this, it really reminds me of some of the Marvel Star Comics from back in the day. Just cool art and a fun, fast-paced story with a great cliffhanger ending. I really admire Kirkman for giving almost every issue of this series a “to be continued…” ending. It’s nice that he respects his readership — no matter what the age — enough to do that.

Super Dinosaur #9
Written by Robert Kirkman
Pencils & Colors by Jason Howard

Image Comics
Release Date: March 21, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

There’s a lot missing from Super Dinosaur #9. Like the Super Dinosaur theme song. Super Dinosaur toys. Super Dinosaur t-shirts. Super Dinosaur breakfast cereal. Super Dinosaur the 3-D ride. Super Dinosaur Underoos and of course, Super Dinosaur: The Flame Thrower. But, for the comic itself — it’s pretty much all there.

Robert Kirkman writes a great issue of a licensed property comic that never was a licensed property. Yes, this book is aimed at kids, but for someone like myself, and any reader who’s over the age of about 16, it reads like that comic you picked up when you were a kid. GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, Visionaries, Transformers, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, whatever it was that we watched on TV or played with in the yard and then that one day we discovered that there was a comic book to go with it!! And we ate that comic up with a spoon!!! That’s the same feeling I got when reading this comic.
