Published in 1989, Richard McGuire’s black-and-white strip has come to be regarded as a game changer that revolutionized  narrative  possibilities  of  graphic  fiction. In  the  deceptively  modest  layout  of  the  strip, McGuire  created  a  multidimensional  zone  of  small  moments  projected  against  the  long  horizon.  The  strip covers  six  pages  of  six  panels  each,  but  beginning  with  the  fifth  panel  the  reader  encounters  year-labeled “windows” of time that float freely into each frame of action. This frame-within-frame layout encourages re-reading and flipping back and forth between the panels. Instead of linear progression, “Here” conflates time and space to generate multiple dimensionalities that become simultaneously present. With the focus centered on the  dynamics  of  simultaneity,  this  paper  examines  the  framing  devices  and  narrative  strategies  which introduce   multiple   and   overlapping   temporalities   by   means   of   visual   and   verbal   juxtapositions. Subsequently,  it  discusses  the  interactive  ebook  edition  of Here,  which  as  I  argue,  enhances  the  time-bending  quality  of  the  original  script  and  explores  the  digital  mobility  of  post-Cartesian  cyberspace  and time.
