Mulanosaurus Rex

In Mulanosaurus Rex, Mule Boy has landed a job at the Natural History museum but he has one major problem: he needs a truly sensational dinosaur for the exhibition.

Afraid of ending up unemployed, he joins forces with the President, who is on a quest to find the last ever dinosaur in order to produce more oil and petrol. Together this odd couple set out on a crazy quest to capture a dinosaur that is threatened with extinction. Things don’t go quite according to plan.

Mulanosaurus Rex is the fourth book about Mule Boy, a quartet of graphic novels that blend myth, adventure and social commentary, in text and images. Mule Boy’s skewed and somewhat alienated universe enables us to see ourselves and our society with fresh eyes.
