Spektor then dies in a horrible fashion.
“Turok Part 3”
Writer: Chuck Wendig
Artist: Alvaro Sarraseca
Turok with Arthok have arrived at Railtown to rescue Arthok’s love. Turok’s plan is to knock out Arthok and take him to the mayor for a reward. Only the mayor recognizes Turok and knows that there is a large reward for him.
They brought back Tragg. They didn’t do much with him but it was cool to see he wasn’t forgotten. Maybe someday they will give that character a new series. Anyway, the story was OK. Not a lot happened except Magnus comes to the realization that something big is happening that is a threat. Dr. Spektor gets killed by being torn apart so we know that this bad thing is really dangerous. It does keep my interest to find out what happens.
The Turok story was short and apparently is being run in the other titles. Seems Dynamite decided to plant cross stories in all the titles to sell books. Anyway, Turok gets captured by a big evil dinosaur man wearing a tie. This was too short to give a good judgement but this just doesn’t seem like the Turok I knew.
