Demian's Thoughts:

This is essentially a snack-sized version of Meanwhile, utilizing the same maze of comic panels with arrows carrying the story in various directions and across pages. In only twenty pages, the story can't accomplish as much, but it manages at least one clever mechanic (time travel) and a laugh or two.
