TUROK #4

“Blood Hunt”

Writer: Chuck Wendig

Artist: Alvaro Sarreseca

Chicago one year ago and we find out how Turok and his daughter came to the Lost Valley. They were in their Chicago apartment when a storm came and sucked them up. Now in the present Turok and his companions are prisoners of the Cult of Evernight. They soon find out that the rebels to the Varanid empire have joined forces with this cult. Their leader gets Turok and friends some food and tells them about the city of Ak-Tha. We then switch to the emperor Vex who is a real fop. He has to be constantly told how brilliant he is. He is going to Ak-Tha to drink the blood and eat the human children. This is supposed to be an aphrodisiac. Turok is offered help in getting to Ak-Tha in exchange for killing the emperor. He agrees and is shown a rocket train that the rebels have captured.

“Doctor Spektor Part 10”

Writer: Aubrey Sitterson

Artist: Dylan Burnett

Spektor is on a date with his girlfriend. The guy is just begging her to not break up with him. Naturally she does and his demon companion encourages Spektor to raise some Hell.

We finally get an idea how Turok and his daughter wound up in the Lost Valley. Not really a very inventive plot. In fact, the whole plot just slowly meanders along. Lots of convenient stuff happens to help out Turok. I guess something will happen next issue. I mean it is the last one so something should happen.

As for the Spektor story. God what a pathetic character. You just want to slap the guy around for being such a pathetic character. How could anyone feel that this is something people want to read.
