Overton Loyd:  Pretty As A Picture!!!!
by Dr. Sarcofiguy, Age 45

I was rummaging at a local music store that actually carries LP'S!  Not VINYL, but LP'S!  Meaning "Long Playin' Records!"  That's what folks used to call music on those plastic platters before they decided that it was passe' and switched to CD's! 

ANYWAY:  The good Doctor stumbled across an album from his youth.  The album?  PARLIAMENT:  FUNKENTELECHY VS THE PLACEBO SYNDROME!  Casablanca records, 1977!  Yeah, buddy!  Did that thing bring back memories!

What was most especially special about this lp was that it had the actual, rarely seen, comic book inside!  YEAH!  It was Doctor Funkenstein VS Sir Nosedevoidoffunk!  It was an awesome comic drawn by the amazing OVERTON LOYD!  Now, some of you may not know this, but, Doctor Sarcofiguy's alter-ego is an artiste, and he was inspired by two people, Al Hirshfeld, and OVERTON LOYD!

As you can tell from Doctor Sarcofiguy's album cover (available HERE!!!!):

Oh, there was nothing like the cariacature work of the magnificent Lloyd.  It was funny.  Memorable.  And wonderfully free flowin'!  Very structured in it's "spontaneity!"  I dunno if my alter-ego ever feels like he's captured that grace of pen that Loyd, or Hirshfeld, has in his career, but he's certainly tried!

BEAUTY BEYOND THE PALE or "Heroic Albinos That I've Loved!"

I hate the term albino, really.  Nowadays it emphasizes the overimportance of having a skin tone.  I'm BEIN' SERIOUS!  

People, let me tell you, when it comes to color?  There is so much prismatic diversity within the Spectral Crayola Categorical Continuum, that just calling somebody "white" or "black" is ridiculous, and just plain old LAZY!

What I want y'all ta do is buy yourself a swatch book from your local hardware store, and I want you to learn a few more color descriptions!  Fer instance, I'm NOT BLACK!  I'm more a burnt sienna, or a honey cocoa!  That's right!  And ALBINOS aren't really opaque, or devoid of color.   I refer to them as salt toned!  Sometime I've been known to use the term, POWDER, like my favorite movie character.

But my favorite descriptions for an albino's tones would be Alabaster, Snowy, or MARBLE, yeaaah.

I've already illustrated how desperately I wanted folks to produce a Sandman movie!  I've got the perfect star:

BEN WISHAW.  Oh, he was totally fantastic in one of my favorite books turned to film, PERFUME:  The Story of a Murderer, which was written by Patrick Suskind. 

As you can see, my alter-ego has manipulated a few images just to prove my point on how perfect he'd be for the role.  FUNKY, HUH?!

And then there's my other favorite Marble toned hero that I think should get the Hollywood movie treatment!   ELRIC of Melnibone'!  The journey of Elric is a wonderful blend of sword and sorcery, better even than CONAN the barbarian, I say! 

I got him cast already!  Somebody Edgar Winter-like, but not so damned old to play the part!  I was thinkin' Leornardo Di Caprio at first!  Then I saw this guy:

This Marble fashion model could do the trick, I TELL YOU!  Well, I don't know if'n he can act,
