A Plain Gallop Overstride Onto A Cramped Anti-Djinn Jamboree


Two-thirds of the newspapers that originally printed this Geranium Lake Properties panel in 1987 used the word “Overstrike” instead of “Overstride” in the caption. Looking at a Xerox copy of the handwritten note that accompanied the artwork, I can’t really tell if the letter in question is a “d” or a “k”.

We sometimes refer to the captions for GLP comics as titles, but the correct term is caption.

A Grotrolem Decomposition of an Anise Seed


Named after Georgy Gustav Grotrolem, geometrist, born 1790, died sometime after 1868. On January 28, 1898, a body identified as Grotrolem’s was found in the attic of a house on Rue Espariat in Aix-en-Provence. His major work was published in Gesammelte Werke im Volumenschattengraphik, 1863.

Today’s GLP panel is one of the many misprints from Newark’s Star-Ledger preferred by Yost over the error-free reproductions. He liked this one so well that he apparently destroyed his original artwork, and we only have this image in the collection of GLP slides gifted to us by Yost’s assistant, Ha Kim Ngoc.

Bagri Maro and the Matacaballos


Bagri Maro is the hero of Tales of a Horse Scorpion, a series of novels by Raymond Lully. The setting of the novels is a future Earth where humans have become extinct and the world is dominated by five races of intelligent arthropods. Wm. Yost said he encountered the work of Raymond Lully in his early teens, when he saw the novels in a comic book, in a depiction of Dr. Strange’s library by Steve Ditko.

I have been on vacation, sort of. I took what I like to call (with reasonable accuracy) a mental health break. I stayed away from all social media for roughly 3 months, and I came back on September 26th with Facebook and Tumblr. Tumblr is the easiest media platform for me to use, Facebook is the most annoying, but FB is inescapable because most members of my family use it instead of actually calling me and talking to me.

Since my hiatus ended, I have posted 11 new GLP comics at my Tumblr, A Black Brick, in less than a month. I wish there was a scintillating story about why that blog is called “A Black Brick”, but there’s really no story at all. I should make something up. If you like to wait for good things to come to you, I will be posting all of the new stuff here.
