%%[[caption-width:300:some caption text]]

A webcomic series written by K.E. Detwiler. Formerly called ''The Adventures of Dino-Boy'' and ''The New Adventures of Dino-Boy'', Detwiler eventually settled on the overall name ''Dino-Boy''. Unlike most other webcomics, which have a daily updating storyline, ''Dino-Boy'' is published more like a comic book series, with a new "issue" out every other month or so.

The series revolves around the actions of Evan Nedelka, otherwise known as the superhero Dino-Boy (AKA the Dinosaur), a [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent were-saurian]] who [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke received his powers through an accident]] in the local natural history museum, and his younger sister, Halle Nedelka (hero name Blue Jay), a BadassNormal who [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman wears an anti-gravity vest]]. The story started out with the young heroes in grade school, but a subsequent TimeSkip now has the characters as young adults, attending college. While at first glance the series seems to be about [[TheyFightCrime Evan and Halle fighting crime]], most stories feature {{an Aesop}} about [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy life, the universe, and stuff like that]].

The series itself can be found [[http://www.dino-boy.com/ here]].

!! This webcomic provides examples of:

* AIIsACrapshoot: Mirage's computer system.
* BadassNormal: Blue Jay.
* ChurchMilitant: Testament, in case the name didn't already give it away.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Blue Jay's anti-gravity vest.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Richard Kranley. Then he gets elected ''mayor''.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Talon, though its [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that she can talk to animals.
* LoveIsInTheAir: The villain Heartbreaker's method of pulling off crimes.
* HalfHumanHybrid: the Monkey
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Used pretty straight with Dino-Boy and some villains, but strongly averted with Blue Jay, who trained herself to [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower impressive]] [[BadassNormal levels]], and [[PsychoSerum invoked]] with Night Owl.
* HeroicBSOD: Dino-Boy has a ''looong'' one of these when he unlocks his SuperPoweredEvilSide and nearly kills his sister and the BigBad of the original series. In fact he becomes a pacifist for most of the TimeSkip, only becoming a superhero again when the story starts back up.
* KnightTemplar: Once again, its Testament
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: Dino-Boy can switch between human and saurian forms [[spoiler:and becomes more of a MixAndMatchCritter as Chaos Dino Boy, gaining various parts from different dinosaur species]].
* SenseFreak: Part of the reason the villain Night Owl ([[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} no, not that Nite Owl]]), became evil.
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: When [[spoiler:Monkey nearly beats Talon to death]], Dino-Boy finally snaps and turns into Chaos Dino Boy, an unrelenting monster covered in [[SpikesOfVillainy spikes, armor]] and all sorts of other nasty implements. And he has no qualms about ripping his enemies to pieces. [[spoiler: Luckily Dino-Boy manages to revert back before killing the Monkey]].
* TimeSkip: Between the original ''Adventures of Dino Boy'' and the current ''New Adventures of Dino Boy''. Between the two, most of the cast of the original cast hangs up the cape.
* UnstoppableRage: Chaos Dino Boy.
