Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? No, it’s Kek-W and Shaky Kane’s “Cap’n Dinosaur”!


Cap'n Dinosaur Cover

Writer Kek-W (2000AD, Rudy Rucker’s FLURB) and artist Shaky Kane (Bulletproof Coffin) take the law into their own hands and bring readers a complete, all-new, Cap’n Dinosaur tale in a one-shot comic published by US publisher Image Comics.

An homage to the classic comics, Cap’n Dinosaur pulls inspiration from mail-order-advertisements found in comic series of the 1950s and 1960s. When a mysterious drowned man falls out of the clear blue sky, The Cap’n and Honey Moon follow a trail which leads them to a deserted amusement park, but what they find will take readers’ breath away.

“Snag yourself a copy – it’s kool and crazy,” enthuses Kek-W, whose past credits include 1947 with artist Mike Dowling, “Tharg’s Terror Tales” for 2000AD and the recent three-part 2000AD series “Colony” featuring art by Vince Locke. “It don’t matter whether you’re young or old – this mag will light up your summer.”

“Half the fun of old comic books were the mail order adverts,” says Shaky Kane. “So I figured that if the mail order adverts were to somehow feature in the story itself, well then you’d get the full fun!”

“Shaky and I are trying to channel a free-wheeling old school spirit—harness the strangeness that used to infect comics back in the late 50s and early 60s,” elaborated Kek-W. “We want to inject some fun back into things. Reality is overrated!”

Cap'n Dinosaur - ExtraCap’n Dinosaur (One-Shot) arrives in specialist comic shop on 16th July 2014. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140606
