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. 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.
