The last in a series of six comic-book adventures that bring the dinosaurs back to life for young readers, T. Rex and the Great Extinction tells the story of an epic showdown between a Tyrannosaurus and a Triceratops at the twilight of the Cretaceous period.

In Abbeville’s Dinosaurs series, a talented artist and a noted paleontologist have teamed up to re-create the vanished world of the dinosaurs in comic-book form. Each volume in the series tells the action-packed yet scientifically accurate story of a different dinosaur living in its particular time and place, and also includes an illustrated essay that explains more about the creatures and settings encountered in the comic.

T. Rex and the Great Extinction, the sixth and last title in the series, is set at the end of the Cretaceous period, 65 million years ago. In this world, whose scenery resembles that of our own, a ravenous Tyrannosaurus patrols its territory. Usually it hunts the duck-billed Edmontosaurus, but today it comes upon a massive Triceratops, and the most epic clash in animal history takes place. Little do these mighty combatants realize that both their species will soon vanish from the earth, leaving only fossils behind.

At the back of each volume, meanwhile, are several short essays, abundantly illustrated with original drawings and photographs of fossils, that explain more about the creatures and settings encountered in the comic.

The Hunting Pack, the third title in the series, depicts life in a group of Allosaurus in the late Jurassic period, 150 million years ago, in what is today western North America. As these powerful predators hunt herbivores like Camarasaurus and Stegosaurus, an aggressive young Allosaurus challenges the battle-scarred dominant male for leadership of the pack. The essays at the back of the book explore the comic's remarkable setting, the ancient ecosystem of the Morrison Formation, located in what is today the western United States and Canada.
