Style: Tonal. Genre: SF. Time Span: Future and prehistoric. Nudity: Full frontal nudity.
Keywords: Time travelling. Dinosaur.
Synopsis: Girl goes to prehistoric past by meditating, but earthshake in laboratory breaks the connection. For help they call girl’s old high school lover. Girl wakes up as a naked 18 year-old girl (brain damage) and with helper she refuses to come back. Until dinosaur attacks on them.
Comment: Brilliant B&W artwork. Story by Bruce Jones is alive and interesting, and builds a base for future collaboration with Corben (“Rip in Time”). Coverstorys in Eerie #77, by Corben himself, and in Eerie #97, cover by Val Mayerik.
Extra: It appears that this story has got only one version. A girl has got blurred niples on several pages. Prob. also in the original version.
Corben: The cover of Eerie #77, with the girl in the tree portrayed again by Karen G., was my attempt to evoke some of the mood of the jungles in the original King Kong. These stories, including “Within You . . . Without You,” represent my comic work at a time when I was young and determined to prove myself. [bloody-disgusting.com]
