Turok - Son Of Space!






The Mexican comic book covers above all promise Turok will face off against(or at least run away from)various UFO's and their sundry alien inhabitants. The only time I know of that Turok and Andar battled spaceships was in issue #58 of the Gold Key run when they confronted robots from space.

And while we're on the subject. The cover of issue #58 by George Wilson was later altered nad reused on issue #98, but not quite all of it. The alien robots are removed and the dinosaur altered, along with a new caveman victim and his raft.

  1. Wait...what...so, when you open all but one of those issues there are no space ships or are they all reprints of the same issue?

  2. It's a mystery to me as well. The covers might be all for the same story or perhaps there's a Turok alien story I've missed. But an intriguing possibility is there might be "new" material starring Turok exclusive to these books. I doubt that, but it's a possibility.

  3. All the Mexican comics shown here contained original stories created by Editorial Novaro. Aliens appeared several times on the Mexican Turok.
