By the 23rd century mankind had destroyed most animals on Earth, living instead on synthetic foods. With the invention of time travel corporations could hire hardened cowboys to travel back to the prehistoric era to round up dinosaurs for their meat.
The series concentrates on man's attempts to use technology to control nature, and nature's tendency to overcome them.
The series has returned quite often over the years, as well as having related characters appear in other strips.
Main Characters Edit
Reagan was the original trail boss, in charge of the herders in Book One. He was imprisoned for his part in the destruction of the Trans-Time base, but returned in Badlanders.
She was the 120-year old matriarch of the Tyrannosaurs in Book One. She became known as Old One Eye after Earl Reagan gouged out one of her eyes.
Carver was an ex-trail boss, who had used the proceeds from that to construct his own town named Carver City. He had lost his hand in a fight with a deinonychus, but had killed it and replaced the missing hand with one of the dinosaur's claws.
