Pledging for Extreme Dinosaurs II

Hi everybody,

If you're anything like me (I.e. A life-long dino fan born in the 1980s), you probably grew up with Rey's work in general & "Extreme Dinosaurs" in particular, the latter of which is the best traditional Rey book (& henceforth ER: https://www.amazon.com/review/R1D5YN9OJS6MXU/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_rdp_perm?ie=UTF8 ). I've always wanted a sequel or updated edition to ER, but never thought there'd be 1. I then found out about "Extreme Dinosaurs II. The Projects." ( https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/luisvrey/extreme-dinosaurs-ii-the-projects ) & pledged 25, the rewards for which include ERII. In short, I recommend that everyone pledges (especially if you like dinos or Rey or have ever used Kickstarter).

Cheers,
Herman Diaz

Well, I am a life-long fan born in the 80s and did not grow up with his work. The title "Extreme Dinosaurs" also always makes me think of this:
Jurassic Park is frightning in the dark
All the dinosaurs are running wild
Someone let T. Rex out of his pen
I'm afraid those things'll harm me
'Cause they sure don't act like Barney
And they think that I'm their dinner, not their friend
Oh no

The cartoon is where my mind went first as well.

I always found Rey's style really off-putting for some reason, although I'm definitely in the right demographic.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

There are a few exceptions but I mostly agree. I can see the appeal though.

Me, Ive always adored Reys artwork. Id love to see more dinosaur toys taking a cue from his style.

Hence why I said "probably" (as opposed to "definitely). ;)
