Richard Scarry and Rube Goldberg collide in John Martz’s whimsical comic book world.

In Tim’s world, a cat can paint on the ceiling and a happy pig couple can wait months for the bus. A duck and a mouse love to go flying, in a plane, of course. Every page is an adventure and each character is colorful in this collection of comics.
