Raptor Cop is a non-stop, action/adventure roller coaster ride---with all the exciting twists and turns!
One night, Stan and his K-9 Unit corner Willie in a university lab. During the gun fight, test tubes explode in Stans face. His blood absorbs the fossilized cells of a prehistoric raptor. Stan soon learns that he is able to transform into a raptor with all the powers of the fabled hunter, but not without a few drawbacks. His transformation is a work-in-progress including the pitfalls and dangers of a disjointed life in an unforgiving world.
In order to escape the lab, Willie takes a lab research chemist, JUANITA, as hostage. She is also the only person capable of unlocking the mystery of Stans condition. Stan needs to hurry if he wants to save Juanita. But, the police mistake a transformed Stan for one of the criminals and a dragnet is set up for his capture.
Time is running out. Willie buries Juanita in a coffin with a 48-hour air supply, adding a snake and a mouse to keep her company. He demands $10 million from the city or he will let Juanita die. Can Stan control his transformations enough to find Juanita? Will he be captured by his own police department? And how will the dogs cope with a prehistoric raptor as their commander?
The author's ability to tell a story in such a short time is wonderfully showcased in this comic book. I shared this one with my grandson and nephew, Both are huge fans of the most recent movie depicting dinosaurs. One of them, I know was rooting for the dinosaur in several of the movies scenes. Along with me, both of these young men loved the graphics, non-stop action, and well-developed story line. Wanting to see what they were so excited about my brother-in-law took a few minutes to read it, also. He was so impressed that he ask to borrow it to show his co-worker who is a comic book buff the next day.
