Delgado also does not include information about the dinosaurs he draws, which to me is part of the appeal of the book. Instead, Delgado takes the idea of dinosaurs, adds brilliant though probably assumed colors, adds just the right bits of anthropomorphism maternal and paternal love, the impulses for revenge and hate , and ends up with a novel told completely through pictures.
The reason why such a venture is successful is that Delgado is an amazing draftsman. His pictures have the weight of reality, even during the moments that could never have happened, such as revenge sequences.
He uses thin lines to draw highly detailed scenes, bringing to life a world that has not been seen for millions of years. Delgado uses traditional square and rectangular panels when he wants to, but never allows them to cramp his images and he abandons them often for full page spreads which soar cinematically.

A hunt swooping through prehistoric clouds is as breathtaking as any nature documentary. All of these items have been put into one package which is printed on brilliant white paper, in full color, with a solid binding.
Though the book is marked volume one, so far it encompasses everything that has previously been created for the Age of Reptiles universe. But the volume one designation leaves things open for more in the future, which is a good thing! A good selling point if displayed facing out. The level of violence is not unexpected for a nature story.
The giant reptiles kill and eat, sometimes viciously, sometimes simply to survive. There is blood and gore and offal, but again, not in unrealistic or showy quantities. Even with the touch of anthropomorphism, this is still a nature story, unrelenting and unsparing. Middle school aged and up readers will appreciate this, especially if they were or still are dinosaur fans.

One little caveat I will emphasize here is that this book can be quite violent. The art […]. It would be especially important to track the differentiation between species when there is no written story! Still, I find that powerful stories are often told with pictures instead of words. This is a great review!
