Reading Room: WEIRD TALES OF THE FUTURE "Ten Thousand Years Ago"

Here's the "pilot" for an ongoing comic series that never came about...
..but did see publication in Key's Weird Tales of the Future #1 (1952)!
It's an interesting premise, and the publishers even gave the story the coveted cover slot...
Art by Ross Andru and ?
...yet next issue, Jerry and Jill were nowhere to be found!
So, what happened?
With a cool (if somewhat implausable) story by an uncredited scripter and pencils (and possible inks) by Ross Andru, it seemed like the sort of ongoing feature that could anchor a title.
Was a second story comissioned?
We'll never know...
