I'm finding out more things about Turok's days with Valiant Comics.
Actually, I am learning more about the comic book industry in general, Valiant in particular, and Turok as a desired consequence.
Apparently, there was a "comic book speculator boom of the 1990s" hyperbolicly termed an apocalyse of sorts of which Turok (through Valiant Comics) was a part. Back then, Valiant proudly touted it as "the Valiant Era."
I need to go now, but I wanted to put up these links:
