My introduction to Turok Son of Stone was the Golden Key series of comics when I was little. I must admit it wasn’t the character of Turok himself who drew me to the comic. It was the fact that the book had dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes within its pages. As a kid, those amazing, mysterious beasts were beyond cool.
My first real exposure to the Red Sonja character was the 1985 movie starring Brigitte Nielsen as the battling barbarian. To those who are late to the party, female-led superhero films and TV shows started long before the current Marvel, DC franchises. Red Sonja, Tank Girl, Barb Wire and even television shows like the Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman and The Secrets of Isis headline a legacy that goes all the way back to the seventies.
