    Default Looking for 1970s Comic about Time Traveling Hunters killing off dinosaurs

    Looking for 1970s Comic about Time Traveling Hunters killing off dinosaurs accidentally by introducing Bird Flu. Remember this comic from my youth very fondly, and I want to give a copy to a grand child. Anyone able to tell me the comic details?

    At first I thought of Worlds Unknown #2 - https://www.comics.org/issue/26461 but there's nothing about the flu in that story.

    What country were you in at the time, and was the story in color or black & white? That will help narrow down the possibilities.

    It was a colored comic I read in the US. Might have been early 1980s. I seem to remember one of the characters had a pet parrot, and the bird flu somehow was transferred to a dinosaur - which led to their extinction.

    The search could hard because, as you probably know, there was a famous Ray Bradbury story about time-traveling dinosaur hunters that change the future, which was the origin of the "butterfly effect." This story was adapted and inspired many comic book stories, including probably the one you're looking for.

    Maybe it's Xenozoic Tales? But i'm pretty sure that was an 80's comic

    Iíve read Xenozoic Tales (a long time ago so please donít rely fully on what Iím about to say)...and Iím 80 percent sure it couldnít be that because I think artwork was black and white, and the storyline was one in which dinosaurs had re-appeared in modern world setting rather than humans going into distant past.

    If it's 1970s it might have been Flesh by Pat Mills, which ran in 2000 AD. Time traveling cowboys farming dinosaurs for meat. I dunno about bird flu though.
