How Did Devil Dinosaur Get Stuck in the Present?

Comic Book Questions Answered – where I answer whatever questions you folks might have about comic books (feel free to e-mail questions to me at brianc@cbr.com).

Elisabeth D. wrote in to ask, “How exactly did Devil Dinosaur go from living in a prehistoric parallel universe to present day Earth-616?”

So which visit turned out to be the permanent one?

As it turned out, it was “Ghost Rider” #81 (by Ivan Velez Jr., Salvador Larroca and Mark Pennington), when Jennifer Kale tried to send Howard the Duck back to HIS dimension but instead opened up a doorway to Devil Dinosaur’s world…
