In our quest for what Steve Bissette called “Pure” Dinosaur Comics, we discovered V.T. Hamlin. Hamlin wrote and drew Alley Oop, a caveman with a pet dinosaur named Dinny. For years, Hamlin included a feature called Dinny’s Family Album. It was a single panel in the Alley Oop strip showcasing a prehistoric dinosaur, fish, bird, or mammal. Alley Oop may not have been pure dinosaur comics, but Dinny’s Family Album sure was!
Here are some of the color images we found on the web. You will find here cephalapsis, pterichthys, dimetrodon, dinichthys, eohippus, glyptodon, phororhacos, plateosaurus, plesiosaurus, and tyrannosaurus rex!
