We’ve been hearing Jurassic Park 4 speculation for nearly a decade. Now, finally, we have confirmation of a new entry in the Jurassic Park franchise – a five issue comic book miniseries entitled Jurassic Park: Redemption.

Redemption takes place 13 years after the events of the original Jurassic Park storyline and features Tim and Lex Murphy – John Hammond’s grandchildren – now grown up, as they attempt to prevent the opening of a new Jurassic Park.

“It’s been 13 years since little Tim and Lex Murphy escaped from the island of Isla Nublar, and recent public opinion has reversed,with the world clamoring for authorities to re-open Jurassic Park! While Tim and Lex try to preserve the Hammond family name, a secret deal is hatched to open a new park! This time they’ll get it right… right?”

The first issue of Jurassic Park: Redemption is slated for release this June and features special cover art by Frank Miller (300, Sin City). The story will be handled by Bob Schreck (Batman), with interior artwork by Nate Van Dyke.

With prospects of a Jurassic Park 4 movie becoming increasingly unlikely, a lot of fans will certainly take what they can get. Though, at first glance, the story seems awfully familiar – maybe because it features major elements of the The Lost World plot – namely Hammond’s family (the moral compass) facing off against greedy corporate interests that have no respect for the power of nature.

While many were skeptical of the “different direction” director Joe Johnston recently mentioned Jurassic 4 might take, rehashing old story ideas in the form of a new comic book miniseries feels a bit like the proverbial nail in the coffin for the series, at least for now. Of course there’s always the inevitable re-release of Jurassic Park in 3D…

What do you think of Jurassic Park: Redemption‘s story? Do you think we’ll see a Jurassic Park 4 any time soon?

  1. This picture of the T-rex is swallowing a Human Being in its galp. I have seen Land of the Lost on DVD that I got from the Video Store and that T-Rex did swallowed Will Farrell in its galp. I hope Jurassic Park 4 doesnt make these T-Rexes eat humans.

    • It’s a Spinosaurus. And the Rexes in JP always ate humans.

  2. I wish the 4th movie would have the two original kids come back.
    Any new JP movie, for me, would have to have a familiar face from the original 'Jurassic Park', otherwise it just doesn't feel the same.
    Between not doing it and taking it in a completely different and superficial direction, better not do it at all.

  3. how about this, they make The Lost World over again, and actually use what happened in the book, in the movie. Because that pile of garbage that happened in the movie was nowhere near as cool as what happened in the book.

  4. I agree with kyyle The lost world book was dynamic…the movie was crap. In order to save Jurassic Park you would really have to do almost a total 180. What made Jurassic park so great was the fact that even though it was an action movie…we learned about the Dinos. Who knew that T rex couldent see you if you stood still???? I sure as hell dident…or that Raptors were Pack Hunters…like wolves???? i dident. Thats what made the book so great especially when Sam neils character (in the book) found out the raptor nests were underground and they migrated.

    • There is a new JP Comic ? Wow!

      BRW: T-rexes not being able to see what not moves is crap. Was proven wrong in “the Lost World” book and is in case of JP most likely the result of Frog DNA.

  5. Im a sucker for Jurassic park, I just enjoy the franchise an ''Jurassic park 4'' is said to be happening but no confirmation from Universal as of yet.
    I dunno though, They should just ''Reboot'' the Franchise… Sorry to say it but Make Jurassic park an The Lost World closer to the Novel's an then just make the 3rd film to end it on a good note an leave it as a trilogy. That's my personal take.

    As for the comic book, i might pick it up if i see it but they need to get rid of that stupid Spinosaurus. T-Rex is the main predator of Jurassic park. Which is why the 3rd film in the franchise sucked so much.

  6. Spinosaurus is blah
