Panel 3

Beaver and Steve are hiding behind some bushes when they discover a dinosaur in the wild.
Beaver: "Oh Look! There's one now!"
Steve: "Ah, a noble stegasaurus, most handsome of all the dinosaurs. Let's observe it and see if we can discover a clue to the cause of their extinction..."
The stegasaurus MONCHs away at some flowers, oblivious to the RUSTLE!s coming from the bushes around it.

Zombie T-Rex: "RARGH" (which appears to translate as: 'BRAAIINS'.)
Zombie Brachiosarus: "GRUAAH" (which translates to: 'GRUAAH'.)
Steve: "Just as I'd always suspected: the dinosaurs were wiped out by a zombie plague!"

Panel 5

Steve: "Just wait til the boys at the scientific society hear about this! Come on Beaver, lets get back to the time machine and we'll be sipping champagne before you can say 'We're surrounded by giant undead reptiles with an insatiable hunger for the flesh of the living'!"
Beaver: "But Steve, we're surrounded by giant undead reptiles with an insatiable hunger for the flesh of the living!"

[To be contd.]
