'''''Dinosaurs Vs Aliens''''' is a graphic novel created by BarrySonnenfeld (''Film/MenInBlack'') and GrantMorrison (also known for ''ComicBook/{{We3}}'').

The story focuses on a secret world war battle that was never recorded in the history books. When an alien invasion attacks Earth in the Age of the Dinosaurs, the planet's only saviors are the savage prehistoric beasts which are much more intelligent than humanity has ever imagined.

A feature film adaptation is also currently in development

! The comic includes the following tropes:

* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: The dinosaurs are depicted as sapient, wearing face paint and armor and using tools.
* AnachronismStew: Scar, the carnivorous dinosaur wearing a ''Triceratops'' skull as headgear, is an ''Allosaurus'', even though the story is supposedly set in the Cretaceous Period.
* AncientAstronauts
* CoolVersusAwesome
* DyingRace: The aliens
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* MisplacedWildlife: ''Spinosaurus'', ''Giganotosaurus'', and ''Saltasaurus'' did not live in North America. The author actually knew this, but included them anyway.
* RaptorAttack: The raptors have [[ShownTheirWork feathers]].
* StockDinosaurs: Both averted and played straight. While there's well-known dinosaurs like ''TyrannosaurusRex'' and ''Spinosaurus'', lesser-known ones like ''Saltasaurus'' and ''Hadrosaurus'' appear as well.
