Identifying a Future Shock...
« on: 10 April, 2005, 12:19:20 am »
Hullo, all. I'm trying to ID a Future Shock that was reprinted in the New Eagle under the title "A Ticket Through Time!". I *think* it may be a reprint of a FS that appeared way back in prog 32/33 called "Excursion", but the site listing puts that story at 8 pages, whereas the one I've got in front of me is only 4.

The story is about a pair of time travellers. It opens with them watching the destruction of Pompeii, and closes with them being burnt at the stake as witches.

Is this the same story as "Excursion"? If it is, is the version in Eagle a condensed version or is the listing on this site incorrect?

Cheers!

The name of the story is "Excursion" and it ran in progs 31 and 33 at a mere 2 pages apiece. In those days, 2000AD was trying to link its stories, even its Future Shocks, together, so the inclusion of Flesh's Trans-Time can be seen in this story.
