Comic-Con fans get first look at 'Turok'

By Rob M. Worley     June 19, 2007

Comics2Film has received word from inside sources that Classic Media will be unveiling the 'Turok' animated movie at Comics-Con International in San Diego.

Created by writer Gaylord Du Bois and artist Rex Maxon in the 1950s for Western Publishing, Turok was a native American trapped in a valley of dinosuars.

In the 1990 the character was updated as part of Valiant Comics' revival of many Western Publishing characters. This lead to a successful video game based on the dinosaur-hunting bowman. A new 'Turok' video game for Xbox 360 and PS3 is slated to debut later this year.

A January report from The Animation Guild blog revealed that a new animated feature 'Turok, Son of Stone' is now in development.

According to our source, fans headed to Comic-Con this summer will see the first footage from 'Turok' at a panel discussion by the direct-to-video film's creative team.
