Jon Agee at his best--goofy story, bravura pictures
In the middle of busy New York City, a cabdriver picks up a tiny guy in a goofy suit who wants to go to the other side of town. The other side of town, it turns out, is not in Brooklyn or Queens. It's a zany, pink-and-green world where things look very familiar but are completely different.
Now, it's one thing to go there, but how on earth do you ever get back?
