Written and art by Ricardo Delgado, colored by James Sinclair and Jim Campbell.

When Ricardo Delgado -- a prolific development and storyboard artist who has worked on such hit films as Men in Black, The Incredibles, WALL-E, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the Matrix series -- first set his sights on creating comics, he crafted an epic tale about the most unlikely cast of characters: dinosaurs. Since that first foray into the world of sequential art, he has returned to his Age of Reptiles again and again, each time crafting a captivating saga about his saurian subjects. This volume collects the long-out-of-print Age of Reptiles and Age of Reptiles: The Hunt, and the never-before-collected third series, Age of Reptiles: The Journey.
