TRAGG AND THE SKY GODS "Death-Duel" Conclusion our distant past, aliens from Yargon manipulated the DNA of two cavewomen!
Their children, Tragg and Lorn, were the first homo sapiens.
After observing the successful results of their experiments, the Yargonians left.
Two decades later after a bloody revolution on their world, other Yargonians, far less benevolent, landed on Earth.
The now-grown Tragg and Lorn seek to organize resistance to the aliens, whom the cave dwellers consider "gods" due to their technology and appearance!
But one of the aliens, Keera, lusts after Tragg and seeks to slay his beloved Lorn...
Up to this never-reprinted story by writer Don Glut and illustrator Dan Spiegle from Gold Key's Tragg and the Sky Gods #6 (1976), Lorn had been a fairly-passive character, following Tragg around and occasionally acting as a decoy or distraction when he battled aliens, dinosaurs, and other, less evolved cavemen.
This issue presents her in a far more aggressive light as she battles for her life in hand-to-hand combat against the alien who also desires her man!
In what can best be described as an "interstellar soap opera",  the ongoing Keera/Tragg/Lorn triangle continued for the remainder of the series' run, adding a human interest side to this variation of the then-phenomenally popular Chariots of the Gods concept!
As to how this series features dinosaurs hanging around with the cavemen (and aliens), this one-pager explains the matter...
