The sequel to the original 1993 hit film spawned a comic adaptation of its own. The series spanned for four issues, with alternate covers, and was later combined for a graphic novel eventually with limited distribution.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park #1
A young girl, Cathy Bowman, has a dinosaur-related accident on the shores of Isla Sorna. Peter Ludlow, Hammond‘s nephew, uses the incident to take control of the InGen board and company from his uncle. Ludlow promises to finish Jurassic Park: San Diego by taking a team to Isla Sorna to capture dinosaurs. Malcolm is summoned to lead an expedition to Isla Sorna, where he finds that Sarah Harding, his girlfriend, is already on Site B.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park #2
Ian Malcolm and his team arrive in time to save Sarah from a herd of angry Stegosaurs. Unfortunately, Ian discovers that his daughter, Kelly, has stowed away to the island, and searches for a way off the island just as Ludlow’s team arrives on Site B to begin their harvest. As Ian and his team helplessly watch the hunters, Roland begins his quest to trap a male T.rex, his “fee.” Everything seems to be going well for the inGen Hunter team until Nick Van Owen launches a daring plan to free the dinosaurs.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park #3
The hunter camp is in chaos, and Nick stumbles upon the baby rex that Roland abducted, finding that Ludlow unwittingly broke the animal’s leg. Nick takes the baby rex back to the RV to have its broken leg mended, but soon mommy and daddy show up to take their baby back. Both camps, the hunters’ due to the rampaging herbivores and the Ian’s due to the adult rexes, are destroyed. Both groups agree to set aside their philosophical differences and try to survive the journey to the workers town to summon help and escape from Isla Sorna.
