A quick idea of a comic, to get it you'd have to have read both "The Long Earth" by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett and "The Thief of Time" by Pratchett. It seems that when it comes to the facts of the main charicter, there are some amusing similarities.
Explanation: Joshua's mother travelled to the Long Earth just as she was giving birth, then popped back to Datum leaving Joshua alone on the planet before popping back to pick him up. She died of bleeding and so he was adopted but he had remarkably abilities to travel between worlds and went on an adventure with an AI claiming to be a reincarnation of a Tibetan called Lobsang.
While Lobsang formally Newgate Ludd and Jermery Clockson was born twice as two people, their mother was the personification of time who couldn't look after them and they were foundlings to the thieves guild and the clock makers guild. He had naturally abilities to stop and slow down time and was eventually apprenticed to Lu-Tze of the history monks. Before taking over his mother's job looking after time itself.
The style of cartoon is from Disney's Phineas and Ferb, I modelled them on Ferb with modifications.
