"THE RAMBLER" The Time Henge" - Part One Post Three

Although reasonably action-packed, these final panels of the first episode are really just about establishing which visitors have survived the attack by the Prehistoric savages, and enabling them to reach the actual archaeological monument. They also firmly establish that the Rambler is the leader of the small group and has some sort of a plan to thwart whatever disaster it is he keeps saying is about to destroy the Earth.

With hindsight I realise that what all three of this 'main cast' lacked was eyebrows, something these days I almost religiously draw on all my main characters. As a result I can't help but think that both the Rambler and the older grey-haired survivor look younger than what I actually envisaged.

Hunted amongst the tall rocks of Stonehenge, the surviving visitors must cast aside their concerns over the sanity of the Rambler, and put their trust in him when he says he must alter the Earth's time-line..?   


  1. I must admit I'm quite enjoying this one Simon (not that I don't enjoy them all, that is), I suspect the spectre of Dr Who looms large over the concept of the "Rambler". I agrre with your comment the other day about the double length panels they do work well with tthe bigger group pieces.

    Keep em' coming. Roger.

  2. Thanks Roger. Unfortunately anything time-travellerish is haunted by Dr Who, and indeed in the past I have re-written some of my early "Dr Who" stories for "The Timeman"/"The Rambler" as they fitted so well. What I desperately try to do with this version of "The Rambler" is try to firmly establish the difference by making the Beorge prominent throughout. I'll let you be the judge of whether I'm successful or not ;-)
