Abby and the expedition have met her great-great-great grandparents Bowen Tyler and Lys La Rue. Bowen comes up with a plan to escape. Just then dinosaurs show up attracted to the triceratops corpse. The groups scatters with instructions to head west to the Plain of Fire. One gets eaten but the others make it. A Galu woman that was captive of Von Schoenvorts manages to jump off the sub and escape as it is attacked by a dinosaur. She meets up with Bradley. Von Schoenvorts takes the mini-submarines. Abby and her crew debate the ramifications of going back in time and decide not to tell Bowen and Lys that they are from the future. It ends with them being attacked by pterodactyls.

An article by the writer on his time as a kid in the seventies. He had to use the power of imagination with his friends in those primitive times. Brings back a lot of memories. Also includes his receipt for a cheese sandwich and a portfolio of alternate covers.

So this issue finds Abby and crew trying to survive the perils of Caspak. They also decide not to tell that they are from the future. My question is did they travel back in time or is Caspak an island that exists outside of time. An enjoyable series so far.

THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT #1

“Prisoners of Caspak”
Writer: Mike Wolfer
Artist: Giancarlo Caracuzzo

Abby Tyler the great-great-great granddaughter of Bowen and Lys Tyler is now the head of the family business in 2015. She recruits the great-great-great grandson of Bradley to go on an expedition to find Caprona. Abby believes the island sank and has a ship with modern mini-subs to explore the ocean floor. Everyone is surprised that the island actually exists. All radio and satellite communications cease. So the expedition takes two mini-subs and goes exploring. They find the underwater tunnel and emerge in Caspak. They are startled by a triceratops and are further startled when a caveman jumps out urging them not to fire. Even more startled when the deck gun from the U-33 takes out the triceratops. On deck is Von Schoenvorts who greets Mr. Tyler.

An article by the writer on how he became a fan of the series at a young age. What he plans to do. Also a biography of everyone involved with the issue. At the end a sketchbook of the characters.

So a series based on Edgar Rice Burroughs Caspak series. Only it is set in the modern world. With the ancestors of the original cast coming back. It also looks like they traveled back in time and are meeting their great-great-great grandparents. Wow what a concept. I am a fan of the series and am quite intrigued by this story. American Mythology has resurrected some of Burroughs lesser known worlds and I think its about time a comic explored these worlds. Looking forward to exploring what they have put out so far.
