Leap Into The Future

Post by suebutcher »

Any info on this strip, which was drawn by Gerry Wood and published in World Of Wonder? Was it a science fiction serial?

Steve Holland scanned the whole series for his Bear Alley blog. You should be able to see it here:

Thanks, Phil, that's the one. My school library had WOW, and the main reason I remember this is because I had no idea what "enzymes" were. Something like LSD, maybe? I'm actually surprised that time travel via drugs was still considered a suitable subject for juvenile fiction in 1970!

It's interesting that Daphne du Maurier's 1969 novel The House on the Strand also deals with the subject of time travel via mind altering drugs. I guess it must have been an idea that was 'in the air' at the time.
