Robert Kirkman and Jason Howard previously worked together on the recently-concluded horror/superhero series, The Astounding Wold-Man series. Super Dinosau is the creative duo’s first crack at creating a comic book their own kids can enjoy. In fact, the original concept behind what later became the modern, genetically-modified dinosaur we see today was first introduced as a character to entertain Howard’s son.

“It’s awesome to look back on that first sketch I did with my son and see how it has evolved into a full blow comic incorporating a bunch of the things I loved as a kid myself,” Howard reminisced. ”But beyond the missiles and dinosaurs, Robert is really infusing the characters with heart and making the story something that all audiences can enjoy, I can’t wait for people to see what is coming up!”

The two creators are pleased to have provided kids like their own with a new reason to start reading comics. In fact, a free Super Dinosaur Origin Special , which picks up right where Super Dinosau #1 leaves off, will be widely available at participating comic shops on Free Comic Book Day (5/11).
