Espinoza plots his escape from the island.

Didja Notice? 

Judging from the indentations on their bony frills, the ceratopsids on the cover are probably Torosaurus, though the corresponding stampede in the actual story seem to be Triceratops. A flock of Pteranodons soars overhead.

Espinoza enters what appears to be the same power control bunker in which Mr. Arnold and Dr. Sattler were attacked by raptors in Jurassic Park.

The raptor on page 18, panel 7 appears to be missing a few teeth!

The stegosaurid that threatens Espinoza on page 22 may be intended as a Tuojiangosaurus, judging by the parallel rows of triangular plates on its back, but I am not aware of any stegosaurid possessing a club tail such as seen here. The tail looks more like it belongs to the armored Ankylosaurus.
