INFORMATION
The Allosaurus is a carnivorous dinosaur from the Jurassic Period that was 10 metres long and weighed 2 tons. It is surprisingly fast and armed with sharp claws and a muscular tail. Inside it's large head is a rather small brain.

Trans Time employees are advised to attack the brittle skull and the company have given the Allosaurus a rating of: 8.

BRIAN McGINTY
Nicknamed 'The Braggart', McGinty boasted that he and others had fought an Allosaurus and that they had killed it with a long staff. When the opportunity to reprise this action single-handed presented itself, he successfully killed the Allosaurus, but due to reflex action after its death, McGinty was killed.

REVIEW
The artwork is great, but the case history is a bit odd. 'The Braggart' claimed he once a did a thing and then when given the opportunity, he does exactly that thing.
