“They cut out your still-beating heart and offer it up to the gods before your dying eyes to keep the sun rising. Thus do the Aztecs serve their faith. The Shorn Ones—the deadliest, most fearless warriors ever to walk the Earth—drag Turok’s young friend Andar and the beautiful Aasta to the sacrificial altar, where Maxtla, the Aztec god-king, raises the obsidian dagger. Only Turok can save them—one man alone against a thousand!”

Turok, Son of Stone is one of comics’ truly iconic characters, popular for half a century.
• Industry legend Jim Shooter returns to the character he redefined in the 1990s to overwhelming sales and critical success.
• Inspired the wildly popular Turok, Dinosaur Hunter game and Turok, Son of Stone animated feature.
