(Click picture to Isla Nublar-size)
I didn't follow Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or most of the output of Mirage Studios, but when I saw the cover of Dino Island #1 by Jim Larson on the rack I had to pick it up and return the next month for the following issue. A science-fiction high adventure featuring a lost avatrix named "Amelia" (golly! wonder who?) fighting for her life on the isle she's crashed on, complete with big brontos and all the usual Jurassic suspects. (In fact, this microseries came out six months before the Jurassic Park.) I enjoyed it quite a bit, and even tho' it's buried somewhere in the Big Bully Vault o' Longboxes, I must dig it out soon and revisit itLawson's art is absolutely beautiful and it's a fun story. Two issues was all the series consisted of, and it was never collected in trade. But keep your eyes open when you're checking quarter boxes; it's well worth the search.
