Even with no words it tells the story of dinosaurs, good and bad.

If you like comics, dinosaurs or impressive storytelling then I heartily recommend this book.

Having a purely illustrated story without words is difficult, doing it well is amazing.

If you like (a) great art, (b) great story telling, or (c) dinosaurs, don't miss this book. If you like all of the above, you should really not miss this book. The artwork is stunning, and it's great to have all these stories collected into one omnibus. Unfortunately, the publisher has shortchanged both the artist and the reader, delivering the product in a format substantially SMALLER that the original comic books. Worse, the tight binding on the thick omnibus edition means that you really can't fully open each page to get the full effect of Delgado's numerous and stunning two-page spreads. And the "cover gallery" squeezes two of the original wrap-around covers on to each (small) page.

This book is really a labour of love. Delgado is obviously a superb draftsman and storyteller. In addition he has a considerable understanding of the current paleontological research which he has used to re-create an entire lost ecosystem. The scale of it is breathtaking and the beauty is utterly compelling. Even though there is no dialog and very little text of any kind , the book takes some time to read. The detail and sophistication of Delgado's world is utterly absorbing. You find that you miss things on a cursory read through, so it rewards multiple-readings.
The only thing that annoyed me was the colouring on the initial chapters, which seemed unnecessarily garish. I know that dinosaurs were probably quite colourful, but this goes too far and distracts from the drawings. The majority of the book is coloured differently though which makes me thing that this was an early problem that was then fixed.
If you like comics, dinosaurs or impressive storytelling then I heartily recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
I was very, very pleasantly surprised and even impressed by this collection. Below, you will find more elements, with some limited SPOILERS.

This is a collection of three comics, initially published separately by Dark Horse respectively in 1993, 1997 and 2009. This is a complete collection as, to the best of my knowledge, there were no more "Age of Reptiles" stories published nowhere (and it is a pity by the way...). The stories are called "Tribal warfare" (1993), "The hunt" (1997) and "The journey" (2009).

As the previous reviewer also remarked, those stories are completely DEVOIDED of words. Quite obviously dinosaurs and other animals do not speak, but Richard Delgado also opted for removing all kind of narration - and I must say that I loved it! Kudos for the author here, because making a succesful comic without ANY WORDS at all is much harder than it could seem - but here it was made with a great mastery.

In "Tribal warfare", a Tyrannosaurus family competes with a pack of Deinonychus for limited supply of food in a pretty desolate place - it is clear, that the losers in this confrontation will simply starve...

In "The hunt" the story begins mostly in the same way - a family of Allosaurus competes for food and territory with a pack of even more vicious (and bigger than the Deinonychus) predators, the Ceratosaurus. Here however the surroundings are somehow less hostile - and also at one moment the story has a BIG twist...

I bought this book for my 12 year old son who is a BIG dinosaur fan. He loved the realistic action in a comic style approach. Even with no words it tells the story of dinosaurs, good and bad. This is a book that even I, as an adult, enjoyed. Looking forward to getting Volume 2.

This is a good graphic novel, even w/o pictures. It doesn't make you feel like you're reading a child's book. It's full of color, and violence, something that you wouldn't see in a child's picture book. I love it.
