Welcome to my BLOG. I post my weekly comic strips here and other articles about comics and cartooning, mostly. There's some miscellaneous pictures in the earlier posts. My "business card" website is RELIABLECOMICS.COM. I also operate GLUYASWILLIAMS.COM. Look around.
Proof that somebody still remembers "THE MAGIC": This was on a carton of Silk soy beverage that I bought yesterday. However, it was only half an inch tall.
If you're reading this, and you're the type with a favorite cartoonist that nobody else seems to know about, and you've been hoarding stuff by your favorite cartoonist that you haven't shown anyone else, and you know HTML, then you owe it to yourself and all of us to make a website about YOUR FAVORITE CARTOONIST. A domain name costs ten bucks a year. A webhost is free (well, mostly: doteasy.com charges you a one-time $35 domain transfer fee, and after that it's free. Or you could just use a blog, which is entirely free). You probably already have a scanner. There you have it!

If you have a good one send me the link, because I can't think of any more, but there's gotta be some.
I'm mentioning this because I've done it, and the product is www.gluyaswilliams.com. There's not a ton of material there at the moment, but I'll add more over time. I've got the stuff, so I might as well share it.

Upcoming animation screenings in Hollywood (from cartoonbrew.com)
"On May 20th, [Jerry Beck] will be hosting another ASIFA-Hollywood screening of 35mm restored KRAZY KAT cartoons from the 1930s - a new program of shorts containing several cartoons unseen in over 70 years! Mark your calendar now - Saturday May 20th at 3:00pm in the Ted Ashley Screening Room on the AFI Los Angeles campus. Our first screening of KRAZY KAT shorts, last fall, was completely packed. Admission is free for Asifa Hollywood members ($10. for non-members). And we will crown a new "Miss Krazy Kat" at the start of the show!"
I attended the earlier screening of Krazy Kartoons and it was great! This is stuff you'll never see again, so be there.
And there's this one, too!!
