First Look: Barry Sonnenfeld & Grant Morrison's DINOSAURS VS. ALIENS

If you like dinosaurs, you're gonna love this. If you don't love 'em, you will after seeing this.

Why did the dinosaurs really become extinct? There's plenty of reasons and a bit of 'fact' about what happen millions of years ago. Filmmaker Barry Sonnenfeld and Grant Morrison have another idea. That's where DINOSAURS VS. ALIENS comes in. Coming in May from Dynamite Entertainment, we'll get to see what might have really happened.

Dynamite has given us an advanced first look at what we can expect from this release. They've given us a lot of art to check out. If you didn't like dinosaurs before seeing these, you just might now.

Rating: Teen +

Cover: Mukesh Singh

Creator: Barry Sonnenfeld

Story: Barry Sonnenfeld & Grant Morrison

Writer: Grant Morrison

Artist: Mukesh Singh & Liquid Studios

From the minds of acclaimed filmmaker, Barry Sonnenfeld (Director of the "Men In Black" Films), and superstar graphic novel creator, Grant Morrison (Batman, The Invisibles, Action Comics, 18 Days), comes "Dinosaurs Vs. Aliens," by Liquid Comics. The story focuses on a secret world war battle that was never recorded in our history books. When an alien invasion attacks Earth in the age of the dinosaurs, our planet's only saviors are the savage prehistoric beasts which are much more intelligent than humanity has ever imagined.

Who do you think wins? Maybe we can assume the aliens do?

AWESOME.

Posted by RigorMortis

Grant Morrison was the only thing making me even remotely pay attention to this project but I'm starting to think it might be pretty cool.

MOTHER OF GOD YES!!!!!! I HAVE WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS! THANK YOU DYNAMITE!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU!

Posted by Izaiah

I just love the art here.

Posted by wieldermoo2

That actually looks awesome, it's goofy I'll grant but man I can't help it Dinosaurs taking on Aliens, it's going to be a blast and the art looks great too.

Posted by aztek_the_lost

okay, that art is awesome, I think that alone would pull me in though Grant Morrison can't hurt?

I'm wondering if the dinosaurs actually win, steal the aliens' spaceships and take off. That's why we think they're extinct.

This looks actually intresting.

I'm starting a cult...I mean...religion.

So into this. Love to see a film version a well.

Where's my Dinosaucers or Dino Riders reboot?

Posted by The Sadhu

I am conflicted by this... I want to rip into it but at the same time my interest has been peaked!

Posted by virginiaforniquer

Ok, Cowboys and Aliens was a stretch that turned out pretty cool... but dinosaurs? I mean... no higher reason vs. super advanced tech.... 10 minute battle, tops

Posted by ARMIV2

The aliens look cool and those dinosaurs are freaking kick-butt!

...

Still not sure how I feel about the movie though...

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I'm actually intrigued by this and want to give it a try :)

Posted by Zomboid

The aliens look pretty cool. Premise sounds pretty cheesy, but considering it's Grant Morrison...I'm sure it'll be interesting.

Posted by six-duck

YES! I can't wait for this. I love Dinos!

Posted by feargalr

The art looks real nice

Posted by Afro_Warrior

The art is gorgeous and Singh deserves a lot of credit. But come on!!! Dinosaur's vs Aliens, not even Morrison could get me to believe in a premise like this.

Posted by NightFang

Aren't their plans to turn this into a movie?

Posted by zombietag

is this going to be talking dinosaurs or every page filled with "rrrr?" "rrrr!" rrrrar!" rrr rrr rrrgg!!"

both sound awful, and yet im not completely against this comic idea.

Edited by Danial79

If there are no people, where will the dialogue come from?

EDIT: Oh, wait, are the dinosaurs going to be talking? I just noticed the head-dresses. Are they intelligent dinos?

Posted by MooseyMcMan

Why wouldn't the aliens just air strike the dinosaurs? I guess I'm just missing the point.

Posted by VanAce

Aliens! Dinosaurs! Grant Morrison! What is there not to like about this?

Posted by InnerVenom123

So much love.

Posted by Icarusflies

Grant Morrison writes about dinosaurs fighting aliens. How can this NOT be epic?

Apparently these dinosaurs are going to be quite intelligent... honestly, I have little faith in the idea, but I also had little faith in Cowboys and Aliens and I wound up enjoying that. Hopefully I'm proven wrong a second time.

Golly!

Posted by JonesDeini

Meh, I think I'll wait for Mammoths vs. Vampires

Posted by SoA

better than anything marvel can promise , im in!

Posted by Deadcool

Morrison?

Posted by NativeNerd

I really hope there is dialogue

Posted by pikahyper

sweetness !!!

Posted by Beast_in_the_Shadows

I love the concept and Grant Morrison is a god, but from this art it looks like it's mostly going to be about Therapods. If that's the case, then that's very disappointing. I would really like it if it was about the different classes of dinosaurs uniting to defeat a common enemy. I really want there to be some Brachiosauruses in this...

Posted by Ganthetsward20

O M F G I'm astounded by the idea as much as I am the art. I think this is going on my pull list!!!

Posted by GothamRed

Next up cool thing vs aliens

Posted by davidgrantlloyd

This looks like a story that could potentially be told quite well with only visuals and not a single word written.

Breathtaking artwork!

Posted by jakob187

I can only hope that when the movie comes out, it does well enough to warrant someone making a Sea Bear & Grizzly Shark movie.

Posted by moywar700

awwww yeeaaa

Posted by Mercy_

That art is unreal.
