Dinosaurs Attack #1 Comic Book. First Printing in NM Condition. Publisher/Year: Eclipse, 1991
IDW Publishing dusts off another classic Topps property this July with the five-issue mini-series “Dinosaurs Attack!” by writer Gary Gerani and legendary “Incredible Hulk” artist Herb Trimpe. “Dinosaurs Attacks!” presents a brutal vision of time-travel gone awry as vicious dinosaurs are loosed upon an unsuspecting present-day society.
“Dinosaurs Attack!” was originally published in 1988 as a mini-series through Eclipse Comics but was discontinued after one issue. IDW’s “Dinosaurs Attack!” reprints that first issue as its own before continuing with all-new art and story for the remaining four issues.
Gerani spoke with Comic Book Resources recently about the project, explaining how “Dinosaurs Attack” landed at IDW after a two decade hiatus, revealing how closely the new IDW series sticks to his ’80s scripts, what the future holds for the property, his personal favorite dinosaur and much more.
What does the future hold for the “Dinosaurs Attack!” property?
I recently prepared it as both a summer movie and a mini-series for the SyFy Channel, a project I aimed at Raimi/Tapert. But Topps seems more interested in going in a comical direction. For the record, Warner Bros. and Joe Dante optioned the property in 1988, but everyone got cold feet when galleys for “Jurassic Park” started circulating right after that. Tim Burton also optioned “DA” in the ’90s, and intended to make it before [his adaptation of] “Mars Attacks,” but ultimately decided he didn’t want to buck Spielberg’s dinosaur franchise.
