"The appearance of a live T. Rex near a fossil dig kicks off a wild round of dino-antics in this series kickoff from an Eisner Award-winning comics writer. . . .Franco strews his lickety-split escapade with cartoons featuring wide-eyed figures viewed, often, from dramatic angles, leaves loose ends aplenty for sequels, and tacks on a dino-glossary and a set of T. Rex facts at the end. Like Sam with those hot dogs, readers eager to snap up any dino-story will make quick work of this tongue-in-cheek romp." - Kirkus Reviews

"Aureliani’s b&w illustrations bring a fittingly cartoony vibe to the madcap action. . . .dinosaur fans should still be swept up in the fun." - Publishers Weekly
