(reverse lifespan) Daniel Quinn, Tim Eldred graphic novel, 2001.
A funeral is not as it seems. After the coffin has been dug up, the corpse is taken to the hospital, comes back to life, and recovers from an illness. The unburied dead go on to have careers, unmarry their spouses, forget their education, turn back into children, and become reverse incontinent. They are eventually reunited with their mothers. This is a world in which time has reversed itself. However the story's main character, Adam, has lived for centuries without being reunited with his mother. The protagonist travels "the length of Palestine and Syria" and circles "the shores of Asia Minor" and finally enters a land called Mesopotamia. There he meets a woman named Eve. The two children they care for, Cain and Abel, grow younger each year.

This second graphic book picks up in 1984 and finds the author fleeing the Iran-Iraq War for what she hopes will be a more liberating life in Vienna. Because Satrapi's adventures in Vienna take place during her teenage years, we get to witness the physical transformation of her character and girl body. In an aptly titled chapter, "The Vegetable," Satrapi writes how she grew an astounding 7 inches between the ages of 15 and 16 and then proceeds to take us on a more elaborate explanation of her other growth spurts, which include the elongation of her face and the repositioning of her beauty mark.

There is no classic immediate growing process in which their clothes rip, but many characters, including a newborn girl, 3 y.o. boy, 5 y.o. girl, and 7-8 y.o. boy age thru puberty, adulthood, old age and death. The newborn girl, 5 y.o. girl, and 7-8 y.o. boy are shown naked after the transformations, with breasts, chest hair, penises and pubic hair.
Once the 5 y.o. girl and 7-8 y.o. boy hit their teens they have sex, and the newborn is the result. The girl becomes pregnant, has the baby a few minutes later, and as mentioned the baby eventually grows up and shows naked breasts and pubic hair at the end of the comic story. Never seen AP so graphic before.

Page 18 panel 4: Coming out of the cave towards Matthew is an old woman - Eve: She's in her 70s, a little overweight, with shaggy white hair and a shapeless dress.
panel 5: Eve now looks about 50: her grey hair is streaked with black, her face is less lined, her dress beginning to fill out.
panel 6: Eve has brought Matthew up to the level of her breasts. She's holding him -- really holding him, her 2 hands encircling his folded wings and body. His tail peeks out 1 end, his head comes out the other. She now looks about 35: Her hair is all dark, her face relatively unlined, except at the eyes.
panel 7: On 1 side, Matthew's head and beak, on the other, Eve's head. Both in profile. Eve now looks about 20.
Page 23 panel 2: Walking toward us through the corridor -- toddling toward us more like it, is a small girl, no older than 4. Her face is made up like a clown's, and she has a clown's red nose on. She's dressed in something that's much too large for her so it's hard to see what it is, really -- a dress or something, or even an oversized pillowcase with holes cut in it at the top for her head to poke out through. It drags on the floor and hides her feet -- get the feeling you do when tiny kids dress up in adult dressing-up clothes. She's holding a red balloon. She looks small and vulnerable and sort of cute.

Salu Digby can shrink down to any size, from a few feet high (Adventure Comics 310) to insect-size. The smallest height she has ever attained is sub-molecular. It takes a few seconds for Violet to dwindle to tiny size (AD 350) and she can grow back up again right away if necessary (AD 358). She is quick enough to shrink to avoid being hit by ray-guns; the blasts go over her head as she dwindles in height (AD 355, AD 361). The momentum of her growing adds to the force behind her punches (AD 364). Normal clothes do not shrink with her, as when she was turned into a small child, making her costume oversized. But upon shrinking as a child, the baggy clothing reduced proportionately with her (AD 317, 2/64). When her power was "beefed-up" by Ambassador Thora, Violet gained the ability to "grow" like Colossal Boy (AD 368).
