You'd be forgiven for not knowing who Devil Dinosaur is. This Jack Kirby oddity from the late '70s has never had a TV show, movie or video game to its credit, and his appearances have been relegated to a few guest spots, one-shots or blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameos in the background of some crowd scenes over the years.

Well, the world is going to get a much closer look at Devil Dinosaur later this month, as Marvel is set to launch the new book Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, by writers Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare and art by Natacha Bustos.

Instead of taking place in the prehistoric past like the original Kirby book, this new series is contemporary, as Devil Dinosaur is transported, via comic book-y means, to the present day. The crimson beast has apparently traded in his former companion, the furry Moon Boy, for a preteen girl named Lunella Lafayette, who will apparently go by the "Moon Girl" moniker.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"This November, prepare for a Marvel team-up that has to be seen to be believed in MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #1 — the new ongoing series from writers Amy Reeder & Brandon Montclare (Rocket Girl) and artist Natacha Bustos (Spider-Woman)! Meet Lunella Lafayette, pre-teen super genius who wants to change the world. But when she uncovers ancient Kree technology, things are about to get a whole lot stranger. Opening a doorway to the prehistoric past, her life is turned upside down when she comes face-to-face with the towering Jurassic giant known only as DEVIL DINOSAUR! But he is not alone. Out of the portal and into the Marvel Universe are transported the Killer-Folk, an ancient tribe of beings who will stop at nothing to acquire the Kree technology!

Lunella's about to learn the hard way that it'll take more than just big brains to save the world. Thankfully she's got a new friend at her side. This unlikely duo are many things, but together, they are the unstoppable Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur! Be there for their first adventure and a Marvel series unlike any you've seen before as Reeder, Montclare and Bustos bring you MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR #1!"
