Boom! by Don Macrae and Mike O'Toole
Meet Howard Pitkin. Meet him twice! Perhaps we should explain. You see Howard Pitkin is just your average everyday happy-go-lucky guy. A guy with a lot of dreams he just can’t seem to realize. Howard Pitkin is also a full-time chiropractor and part-time karaoke fanatic. Now, you’d think a guy like that would be good with his hands. And sure enough, with vertebrae and microphones he’s a wizard. But when it come to repairs around the house ... Which brings us to that fateful Saturday morning when Howard tried to fix the furnace. Luckily, the explosion didn’t burn the house down. It just shook things up a little. Actually, it shook things up a lot! In fact, on that day, time itself came loose! Now, the “house that Howard built” has to accommodate two of him: the one from the present and the one from the future! Oh, yes, problem number one: what to tell Mrs. Pitkin.
