Tiny Tim by Stanley Link(1480-) 1st Appearance July 23, 1931 - Tiny Tim was a creation of Stanley Link, the man credited with the outstanding artwork on the Gumps Sunday edition throughout it's high-adventure era of the 20's.   Tiny Tim was an interesting strip which went through three phases.  In it's first phase the hero was a diminutive soul trying to survive a dangerous world.   Thanks to Gypsy magic, Tim would enter the second phase of the strip as a full-grown orphan in the pattern of Little Orphan Annie.   In the third phase of the strip, Tim would be given the ability to change size at will thanks to more Gypsy magic.  Throughout all of these phases, Tim would be pitted against villains that were both fairy-tale type and contemporary.   The storylines of the strip were never hard-hitting, but were always fun.  Demand for Tiny Tim is moderate.  The sunday-only strips was offered as tabs, halves and smaller.
