At the Earth's Core

Synopsis: A Victorian scientist and his young American backer set off in their new earth-boring machine with a short test on a Welsh mountain. Unfortunately the thing is rather more powerful than expected and they end up in an enormous cavern at the centre of the earth. Here they find a race of humans enslaved to evil oversized prehistoric birds with extra-sensory abilities. The travellers decide they can be some help, the more so as at least one of the slaves is very eye-catching.

Like nothing on earth.

David?

We are not on earth.

We're...

Well, if we're not on earth, doc,

then where the hell are we?

From my observations, dear friend, I

can positively state that we are under it.

Under?

At the earth's core.

By Jove!

How very interesting.

- Uh, d-doc...

- Mmm?

No, I-I don't think you

want to get too close to that.

Yes.

It is a somewhat aggressive

looking... creature.

David!

Oh, dear!

David, don't lose contact.

Doc!

Shoo! Shoo!

Oh!

Oh!

Oh, oh dear!

Oh!

- Ohh!

- No, doc. This way.

Oh, dear.

Oh!

- Here.

- Oh, dear.

Take care of

yourself, David.

- Oh!

- Hang on, doc.

David?

Hang on, doc.

Oh!

Ugh!

Take that!

Come on!

You ugly...

Oh, dear.

Oh, oh, I say!

I say, do be careful.

But we came in peace!

Ugh!

Oh, oh, David,

How good to see that you're safe.

Have you ever seen

anything like this before?

No.

Those prisoners look human.

Yes.

And they appear to be intellectually

superior to our captors.

I do find

that interesting.

They seem a pretty subhuman

species, yet the master race.

Isn't that always the way?

Yes, the power

of aggression, dear boy.

Brawn before brains.

No! Don't hit him!

I'll remember him, doc,

but they all look the same.

Yes.

Ugh!

David,

don't you think it's about time

we introduced ourselves

to our fellow sufferers?

Dr. Abner Perry

at your service, ma'am.

David.

Dia.

Dia?

You can call him Doc.

- Ghak.

- Oh, Ghak.

Oh!

Dia?

Who's that man up in front

who keeps looking at me?

He is Hoojah the sly one.

Do not trust him.

Perry?

Doesn't it ever

get dark here?

According to my watch, we've

been traveling for 2 days.

No, here there can be no night.

Just perpetual daylight.

We are in a cave, you understand,

a gigantic cave.

And the sky is the underside
