PACKER & RATCLIFF

 

The eccentric founders of Packrat Comics, who happen to be immortal time travelers, and can never remember exactly what year their shop first opened. Having "borrowed" T.I.M. the Time Machine from H.G. Wells, and following a year-long layover in 2016, they bounce between eras and dimensions, seeing all the wonders existence has to offer. Not that they care overly much about such things. Originally a series of 'commercial' shorts, Packer & Ratcliff is now a full segment.
