Taking Pre-Orders for DEAD DINOSAURIO

Today I'm launching my Pre-Order campaign for the DEAD DINOSAURIO comic book! Here's a look at the full color wraparound cover: 

As the Aztec Empire is besieged by the Spanish Conquistadors, Eztli, a young Aztec boy, heads into the surrounding hillsides. Desperately seeking help, he miraculously finds it in the form of a reanimated Tyrannosaurus Rex from 65,000,000 B.C.! 

DEAD DINOSAURIO is a 28 page comic, published at magazine size, 8" x 10.5". The wraparound cover is full-color, printed on card stock. The interior pages are colored in gray tones and feature a guest artist gallery as well as a behind-the-scenes portfolio containing early character designs, thumbnails to the original draft and creator commentary. 


Previously, a 5.25" x 7.5" digest size version was published (the PRE-HISTORIC EDITION). This was a signed & numbered, 16 page, b&w preview edition, and made exclusively for the Hispanic Literacy Day Event at the South Chula Vista Library on Sept. 15. For the new magazine size edition, I've added two additional story pages, redrew one panel and added gray tones to the entire story. Below are some samples, without the dialog:

If you pre-order the special sets I've put together, you're not only supporting the publishing of original creator-owned comics, but you'll be able to pick up some extras.

The DINO DOUBLE contains the brand-new magazine size DEAD DINOSAURIO as well as the limited edition PRE-HISTORIC digest edition.

The deluxe PALEO PACK contains both versions of the comic book, as well as a 1.25" Glow-in-the-Dark button. And you also get one page of the original artwork to the comic., penciled and inked on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of Strathmore Smooth Bristol paper. If you like to collect original comic book art, here's your chance to acquire 1 of 14 pages I'm making available for this pre-order campaign. I'll randomly pick a page, and sign each one. Here are some of the pages available (I'm avoiding showing the 'spoiler pages'):

And here's the design for the Glow-in-the-Dark 1.25" button:

I've created a temporary store, DINO MART, to handle the Pre-Orders. The online store for my other comics and DVD is still available at the LOS COMEX WEBSHOP. The Pre-Order campaign will run until Monday, October 1. The books should be ready to ship out to buyers at the end of October.

Thank you in advance for supporting. Please head on over to DINO MART and start digging up your DEAD DINOSAURIO!
