PALEO: the comic that is harder to kill than the actual dinosaurs themselves
August 28, 2012 12:34 PM   Subscribe

Paleo by Jim Lawson was a comic book series set during the Late Cretaceous and featuring dinosaurs as protagonists. It was in print between 2001 and 2004, but is now being "reprinted" as a webcomic.

So far, the entirety of the first issue and a portion of the second have been posted. Two new pages are posted every week.

Read more about dinosaurs in comics in "Paleo-Path" [previously], adapted from the introduction to a print collection of Paleo.

Via Dinosaur Tracking.

Oh hey, this is great!

Man. Jim Lawson. I read a whole lotta Ninja Turtle comics drawn by that guy back in the day.

I want to hug the triceratops from the "first issue" link SO BAD.

The best part of this post is that I learned about Dinosaur Tracking.

Here is a comic with a dinosaur also.

Wait, there are dinosaur comics that don't reuse the same panels for every episode?

I think this comic is just an excuse to draw really awesome, intricate dinosaurs.

I approve!

How the hell do you navigate from page 1 to 2 etc?

Yeah, it's kind of hard to find. There are small first/previous/next/last links in the description box below the image. I thought about mentioning that in the post. I had to hunt around.
