Written by Alan Moore. Cover and art by Chris Sprouse and Al Gordon.

Intertwining the ‘present-day’ timeline of Timmy Turbo and the origin timeline for Tom Strong, we learn that Tom grew up on an island with mysterious, perhaps magical properties. While Timmy reads each of the three parts of the origin, Tom is also on the fringes of Timmy’s timeline, helping foil a robbery attempt happening right around Timmy.
