Synopsis: The helpping guy returns from the past to present day through the body of a girl. They put him/her behind the bars. Whole trip back to past was set up and they put one soilder to check out what is going on. They find prehistoric man, grandfather of human kind.
Comment: Still brilliant B&W artwork; fight between girl and jail guard is fascinate. Bruce Jones adds into interesting story some suspicious elements (animation faked prehistoric times!). Story has traces to the future (raft fight with swimming dinos), “Rip in Time”. Coverstory in Eerie #97, cover by Val Mayerik.
Alternatives [two versions]: Girl strips naked only in [VERS.1] (reprinted in underwear [VERS.2])!
Correction: There was in an Internet mention, that story appeared first time in Eerie #80, but that is incorrect.
