It is going to be a long time before the Jurassic Park franchise returns to the big screen, but if you really need your JP fix, comic publisher IDW will be launching a new series this summer. Called "Jurassic Park: Redemption," the new story will bring back some characters from the first film that have not had to tangle with dinosaurs for a while:
It's been 13 years since little Tim and Lex Murphy escaped from the island of Isla Sorna, and recent public opinion has reversed with the world clamoring for authorities to re-open Jurassic Park. With the help of their controversial Granddad's inheritance and their own sharp wits, a secret deal is struck to open a new park. This time they'll get it right... right?I bet you can imagine what happens, especially since the first storyline will run five issues and there are plans for more. (And, if you just can't get enough dinosaurs-run-amok mayhem, IDW will be re-releasing the entirety of the original Jurassic Park comic-book series.) To find out more about the new series, check out this interview with series writer and co-editor Bob Schreck.
