*** 1/2 (out of five)

When a giant creature straight out of the Triassic period with a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth washes up on a Maui beach, it might be the discovery of a lifetime for Dr. Alex Keller.
Or it could be one that costs him his life.
Keller assembles a team of scientists to investigate the origins of the creature, including his daughter Sarah and young assistant Matt, but quickly finds trouble as their ship is caught in a freak storm and destroyed, leaving them adrift in lifeboats — nearly 2,000 kilometres from land!
The eight survivors are shocked when shortly thereafter they spot land, an island (let’s call it X Isle!) and quickly find themselves confronted by creatures just like the one found on the beach — but very much alive!
Written by Andrew Cosby (Damned Nation) and Michael A. Nelson, with art by Greg Scott, X Isle is part Lost, part Jurassic Park and completely worth a read.
