The Dangerous Games series is considered its own canon apart from the films and the rest of the comic books, like JP: Redemption. Certain things about the story do not connect or follow other events in the film universe or the other two IDW titles Redemption, and Devils in the Desert. One of the main things being why the drug lord Cazares is allowed to operate on the island without being noticed. The entire United Nations is watching this island, and a few payoffs to one person would not “do the trick” so to speak. Also it’s stated in a deleted scene in The Lost World: Jurassic Park says that all the facilities and animals on Isla Nublar had been destroyed after the events taking place in the first film. There are also animals that are not a part of the fifteen original species on the island, and the raptors are completely covered in feathers.
