Mickey & Iga Biva are intrigued by a newspaper story about an old actress made young again. "Docteur Tic Tac" is selling a youth treatment to rejuvenate old adults. They start investigating the place and discover a room with toys, but are thrown out by the employees of the hidden Dr.
A little boy is being handled roughly by a late middle aged couple. They believe the true doctor has been kidnapped, as well as his grandson the boy. They follow the couple from earlier in disguises, and discover the couple also run a homeless charity with strange tanning booths. For some reason, the homeless guys look very old. The device "takes" the years from them, and empties them out equally to others.
Mickey and Iga are taken prisoner and meet the boy again, who they discover isn't the doctor's grandson, but himself. The fake Dr. Tic Tac is of course Pat Hibulaire. The invention was to make rare trees healthy again, but the couple tricked him into believing it destroyed the forest, and the police from that foreign country would arrest them. So they hid by making him a little boy, and the couple got a bit older. In Mickey & Iga Biva's country, they then made a deal with Pat Hibulaire to sell rejuvenation services for money, intending to get young again later.
Pat and Mickey fight over the age-transferring ray gun. They accidentally become old men anthros fighting with canes, and then poof into babies. The good guys win and restore everyone except the Dr., who will destroy his invention and start over.

old age tropes
- (adult characters old aged) Age transformations of certain kinds have been common in comics almost since the beginning. The two permitted types are adults somehow poofed into babies/children (the RN process is glossed over), and adults aged into oldsters. Sometimes the change may only be mental, but is visually depicted by exaggerated expressions and age-altered activities. Many classic covers depicted their characters aged to decrepitude through various means:

Her breast sizes, and in 1 panel her height, appeared to change slightly.

Special one-shot. Morty meets an old friend: Tiny Rick + Morty forever and a hundred years. But is Tiny Rick hiding a tiny secret? When I saw the cover, I thought Rick was ARed into a kid. Spoiler: Nope he wasn't. It's an alternate-dimension Rick who goes around killing older Ricks.
- The comic was inspired by the episode "Big Trouble In Little Sanchez", where Rick makes a teenage version of himself to temporarily contain his mind, also known as Tiny Rick, and attends Harry Herpson High School with Morty and Summer. His down-to-earth style impresses the other students and he becomes popular. However, his youthful personality overpowers his old consciousness in order to stay young forever. His old consciousness resists his younger mind by singing original songs with lyrics that are a cry for help, such as Let Me Out. Tiny Rick attempts to destroy his old body, but Summer uses an Elliott Smith song to get through to old Rick. At the end, Rick's mind is transferred back to his old body, causing him to fall out of the vat completely nude. An underground lair contains several other clones, including slightly younger Rick, older teenage Rick, child Rick, and baby Rick. Tiny Rick now sits unconscious on a chair. Rick then grabs an ax and brutally slices the clones to pieces.
- In this issue it appears Rick did it again to hide from an alternate universe Rick who is killing all other Ricks. We find out Killer Rick is actually the real Rick, and Tiny Rick is the killer. Never is it revealed if he made himself tiny, or was always that way.

Now she tries to make Molly do the same. But instead, Julie Power "suffers a fate worse than death" which could affect her lesbian relation with Karolina Dean.
- Julie comes over dressed in a short-pants, short-sleeves outfit that ends up fitting her pretty well. She also signed the poster of herself at 13 with "don't grow up too fast". What I find interesting is that she stayed in that chair for at least half a Lord of the Rings movie, apparently crying. Or maybe the transformation took that long? Too bad we missed it for dramatic reveal purposes. I'm not looking forward to her continued waterworks drama, but do want to see how old she acts.

Why would the goddess give her two AR doses, but only one AP then. You could just drink a few drops to grow a few years closer to full adulthood. It's weird nobody thought of it.

Rita wakes in the body of a 7 y.o. alien species female. At first she claims to be the evil empress, but soon shrugs it off as just imagination. Rita lived a normal lifetime with a loving family instead of being abandoned, before dying in a monster attack on the planet. She is shocked to awaken back in her cell as Rita, wondering where her family went. This was only the first cycle. We learn the woman whose life she lived was a victim of one of Rita's many monster attacks, and she would be living through the lives of countless other victims. She then starts a new life as a 6 y.o. of a different race.

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.

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.

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.

I love the concept though, and it reminds me of the episode "Kid Stuff" from Justice League Unlimited... probably my favorite mainstream AR ever, on top of seriously exploring the regressed foursome of Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern.

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).

Using a protoplasmic matrix, Lex created a red-headed woman who resembled Lana Lang with the powers of shapeshifting. Mae began to wonder if she was even a real person.

Supergirl leaves Argo City in Kryptonian attire and arrives on Earth in a Supergirl costume. This was eventually discarded for the film so that Slater could be introduced from the beginning. Kara sits on red-yellow-and-blue material when the rocket leaves - the makings of a super costume.

From "The Golden Age Superman: Sunday Pages 1946-1949" collection. Maybe the earliest Superman AR tale.
A strange atomic radiation turns him into a baby. He appears in oversize costume and can only say "Goo." He eventually gets his voice, but after tripping over his adult-size costume says he needs clothes more his age. Lois has a suggestion. The following Sunday we get three panels of the regressed Superman in diapers. He eventually settles on a kiddie costume, suffers humiliations for being a baby, and creates a fake Clark Kent to fill in for him - (PixChick)

Dreamtales has archived a quasi-AR story. Not sure if this quite counts but I ain't gonna quibble and besides, it's uber-weird. A little person couple have a vaudeville act where they play mini-versions of Superman and Lois. When a freak accident somehow makes the guy expand to normal adult size, Superman fills in for him. He does so by traveling through the time-stream, and meeting up with the younger version of himself and temporarily swapping places with him temporally, so "Supertot" can take over the role. It makes no sense whatsoever, but it was late Golden Age so you have to expect that...

Something has gone wrong with the world's time! In a 1-panel throwaway gag, Suske has become a few years older, and Wiske a few years younger. (Obviously it couldn't be the other way around) Wiske now looks like in her first album from 1946 again, so naturally mentions rationing coupons to buy new shoes, associated with her brother's disappearance in that year. (Many children worldwide must have burst their clothes, but of course this was not hinted at) They travel to the Land of Time to set things right again.
Note: in recent years, the characters have been depicted as young teens, whereas in their old albums they were children. Otherwise they are drawn in a more classical style.
