Exclusive Reveal! Titan Comics to Deliver Prehistoric Hysterics in First 2 DUMB DINOS Collection

Titan Comics have exclusively revealed to STARBURST that they’re gearing up to publish the first-ever collection of the hilarious cult digital comic strip 2 Dumb Dinos, and we’re not the only ones excited…

If you don’t love comic strips that are wildly inventive, absurd, minimalist, surreal and very, very funny,” says genre legend Mark Hamill, “then 2 Dumb Dinos is not for you.”

It’s well known that Hamill, when he’s not busy embodying icons such as Luke Skywalker or The Joker, is a huge connoisseur of pop culture, from movies to television, to toys and comic books. It’s a powerful endorsement indeed, and one that comes with a slight twist, as his son, artist and toy designer Nathan Hamill, is actually one half of the 2 Dumb Dinos duo.

Alongside actor and writer Eric Filipkowski, Hamill has been producing the digital comic strip since 2018, and it’s garnered a huge fanbase over its staggering 230+ entries, fans who will undoubtedly be delighted to see Dingus and Scumbag’s adventures finally collected for the first time in a generous 80-page hardcover. Speaking of the cover, here it is in all its adorable glory, and read on for the official synopsis and more details courtesy of Titan Comics themselves…

Synopsis:

THEY’RE DUMB. THEY’RE DINOS. THERE’S TWO OF THEM!

Welcome to the irreverently silly world of two Dinos with their hooves and claws on the pulse of all things pop-cultury. Referencing everything from BK Joes, to Chinese spy balloons, to missing Top Secret White House documents to the latest Hollywood blockbuster! This collection of the cult digital comic strips, available or the first time ever in book form, is a celebration of the glorious tradition of the American newspaper Funnies immortalized by the likes of Peanuts, The Far Side, Pearls Before Swine and Wizard of Id but skewered by the humor of South Park, SpongeBob SquarePants and Drunk Histories.

It’s an affectionate and downright silly slice of American pie with a side order of Dino guano thrown in for free!

From the Press Release:
