In the Valiant series, 'Turok' was not a name, but a title: The Turok was the eldest male in the Fireseed Family whose job it was to close the portal from Earth to the Lost Lands; a Strange, Dark world where an Evil Tyrant named Mothergod had created an army of Bio-mechanical dinosaurs to do her bidding. Though Tal'Set Fireseed, the first Turok, closed the portal, he and his brother Andar ended up AfterTheEnd in a ScavengerWorld instead of in their own time. Mothergod, unfortunately, had followed them back with a group of Bio-mechanical Dinosaurs; and, enlisting the aid of other tyrannical figures in this Post-Apocalyptic Nightmare World had vowed to finally hunt down and kill Tal'Set and Andar.

''Turok'' is a ComicBook hero, a Pre-Columbian Navajo Warrior, who debuted in late 1954. Turok and his friend Andar accidentally fall into [[LostWorld a valley full of dinosaurs]] and struggle to survive and find their way out. In 1956, Turok got his own title, ''Turok: Son of Stone'', originally published by Creator/DellComics, but later by GoldKeyComics. Then he had another series in the 1990s after the character was acquired by JimShooter's ValiantComics; it was there that the nature of the valley (and Turok's role in it) were expanded.

2008 saw the release of an animated DirectToVideo movie called ''Turok: Son of Stone'' based on the comic series of the same name. The animation was done in TimmStyle (one of the film's 3 directors directed the DTV movie ''BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker''), however unlike the original comic it was considerably darker and gorier with HighPressureBlood and dismembered limbs a-plenty.
