: It's kind of shocking that we're two issues into this latest Jurassic Park mini-series and we're still not getting much of the book's actual selling point: the dinosaurs. John Byrne has shown his hand and seems far more concerned with the human story he's molding in Jurassic Park: The Devils in the Desert, hinting at a rich back-story for main character Will Tobias to give readers someone to connect to. However, the honest truth is we are not here to read about how Tobias passed up the true love of his life. We're here to read about dinosaurs eating people off toilet seats and causing mayhem.
The Jurassic Park franchise, by nature, makes for the quintessential monster B-movie. Thus, a very brief character introduction is all that's necessary before characters start dropping like flies. Jurassic Park: Devils in the Desert has overstayed its introductory period by about an issue's worth of pages. It's not until the final few pages of issue #2 where the melodrama steps aside for pteranodons (not to be confused with pterodactyls, as Byrne constantly reiterates) to start flying out of the hilly woodwork and begin biting people.Sample pageReview More comics from this writer
Byrne's script also suffers from a fair bit of over-explanation in Devils in the Desert #2. The characters of this series love to yell exactly what their next move is going to be. Not only does this type of script take away from the effectiveness of the actual art in the comic -- a component of the medium that's equally as important as the writing -- but the extra, unnecessary word balloons just get in the way of some solid sequential storytelling. John Byrne doesn't need to resort to explaining what he's drawing. It undersells his artistic craft.
Jurassic Park: Devils in the Desert really needs to pick up the pace and laser beam focus on what is really important: humans facing off against giant lizards that have been extinct for 65-million years. That's the heart and soul of Jurassic Park. Unfortunately, after two issues of this latest mini-series, John Byrne has not figured that out.Download Instructions
