Ricardo Delgado comic
His mother slaughtered by a pack of Ceratosaurs, a terrified Allosaur must make his way across the sweltering deserts of Jurassic North America -- or face the same fate himself. The Hunt is on in this new chapter of Ricardo Delgado's Age of Reptiles! Told entirely in pictures, the Age of Reptiles series is regarded as one of the finest uses of the comics medium and is appropriate for all ages.
Thundering herds of lizards roam Cretaceous America, and the earth trembles with their passage. Enormous yet graceful meat-eaters shred the still-living meat from the bones of placid plant-eating saurians. Tyrannosaurus rex, the most fearsome carnivore that ever lived, is king. But even T-rex isn't safe from the greedy eyes and the ravenous appetites of a band of bird-quick Deinonychus. A tale from an age before humans and language, Age of Reptiles: Tribal Warfare is a 128-page epic told entirely in pictures. Ricardo Delgado, production artist for "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," has crafted the finest graphic novel about dinosaurs ever released.

One of the few books to harness the sheer visual edge that comic books will always have over written fiction, Hieroglyph, much like Ricardo Delgado's previous project (Age of Reptiles), lets the art do the talking. A (human) space explorer lands on a strange planet which seems to comprise of giant bugs as its dominant life form. He pursues these beings in the name of science, falling deeper into the pitcher plant trap that forms the core of book one. The second book details his effort to both understand this mammoth insect colony and its confounding ritual as well as make a run for his life. The story is, of course, not very original, but Delgado's art work (he can draw more than Dinosaurs, yep) breathes incredible life within the confines of every panel, most of which span the entire page.
