TINY TOM


Created by writer Ray Morgan and artist Thor William, Tiny Tom ran weekly in Pilipino Funny Komiks (Published by Islas Filipinas Publishing Co., Inc.) from 1981 to 1983.


HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KID!


Dr. Lugo
Dr. Rod Suarez and his young son Tom were abducted by the criminal mastermind Dr. Lugo, who wanted the kidnapped scientist to build a shrinking device for him.  During a struggle, Tom was struck by the rays of the device, shrinking him down to about an inch in height.

Despite his size, Tom was able to escape and sought the help of his father's girlfriend, beauty salon owner Olivia.

Rosal, Lily, Dahlia and Camfufot - The original Flower 4.



Assisted by gay beauticians Rosal, Lily, Dahlia and Camfufot, they attempted to rescue Tom's father, who was being held captive in a fake haunted house.



TINY NO MORE


Not-so-Tiny Tom
In the series' 57th chapter (PFK#240 - January 21, 1983), Tom gets hit by a prototype laser which then causes him to grow 12 feet in height!  He spends the remainder of the series in this state as he mops up the rest of Lugo's gang.

  1. Looking at the art style, it seems Thor William is a pseudonym for the late, great Tor Infante. I wonder who Ray Morgan could really be.
