Turok: Son Of Stone: Volume 9 (2014)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
03.18.18

Turok: Son Of Stone: Volume 9 (2014) This collection of Turok stories from 1967 departs a bit from the previous volumes in that it brings in some more fantastical elements such as dragons and aliens, as well as a weird variety of humanoids. In the first tale they are taken captive by Beavermen, who resemble those animals in live in a similar manner, in huts underneath the water. They are being plagued by a giant brontosaur type sauropod and want Turok and Andar to help them get rid of it. They do, but the Beavermen still try to kill them. Then, in another effort to escape Lost Valley, they encounter a flock of albino Pterodactyls that eat everything in their path. After that, it's exploring some deep caverns where another tribe lives, where there's also fire-breathing dimetrodon-type creatures (very similar to the one that was in season three of the original LAND OF THE LOST TV series). They befriend one of the tribesmen, who tells them that he found his way out to the surface, in a strange land with unfamiliar animals like deer and bison—where Turok and Andar come from. However, the local volcano erupts and seals the passageway and their friend is killed. Perhaps the strangest tale is that of THE THINGS FROM THE SKY. A flying saucer, filled with octopi-like aliens, crash lands, and Turok and Andar save them from dinosaurs. They've been exploring the planet and came across the anomaly of Lost Valley, where ancient creatures still exist. They manage to repair their ship and Andar goes on a flight with them and sees his tribe's camp and people he knows—-but he wants to return to get Turok. Things don't work out and the spaceship is destroyed when it runs into a flock of flying reptiles.

For the most part the artwork and stories are great, though there's an inconsistency with some story points. In a few stories they get the poison for their arrows from the roots of a planet, while in others it's clearly the berries from one. And when Andar is aboard the spaceship and sees his tribe below, there are horses—but Turok and Andar (according to the first few issues of the series) are from North America thousands of years ago, far before horses were ever brought here by explorers from Europe.

Writer: Paul S. Newman
