    PAGE 1,
    (PANEL) 1.
    OKAY, THIS STRIP HAS FIVE PANELS IN EXACTLY THE SAME LAYOUT UPON EACH
    PAGE: THERE ARE FOUR HORIZONTAL PANELS DOWN THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF EACH
    PAGE AND A TALL VERTICAL ONE DOWN THE RIGHT. SINCE I'VE HAD TO FIT THE
    ENTIRE OF KNOWN GAY HISTORY FROM PREHISTORIC TIMES ONWARDS INTO EIGHT
    PAGES, THERE ARE ABOUT TWO HUNDRED AND TEN WORDS ON EACH PAGE AND SOME
    RATHER LARGE CAPTIONS. SINCE THERE ARE NO BALLOONS I FIGURE YOU'LL BE
    ABLE TO LAY OUT THE PANELS TO ACCOMODATE THESE. THE HORIZONTAL PANELS
    ALL RECOUNT SCENES AND EVENTS FROM GAY HISTORY, WHILE THE VERTICAL
    PANELS ARE DIFFERENT. USING BEARDSLEY'S HERMAPHRODITE ANGEL FROM HIS
    PICTURE 'THE MIRROR OF LOVE', WHAT WE DO IS SHOW TWO SUCH FIGURES
    AGAINST A BLACK BACKGROUND, RENDERED IN SOME FASHION THAT HEIGHTENS THAT
    SENSE OF PRE-RAPHAELITE CLASSIC SENSIBILITY. THE TWO FIGURES ARE
    IDENTICAL WINGED ANDROGYNES WITH DUAL GENITALIA AND THEY ARE ALWAYS
    POSITIONED ALMOST PERFECTLY SYMMETRICALLY IN THE TALL PANELS SO THAT
    THEY MIGHT BE MIRROR IMAGES OF EACH OTHER, EXCEPT IN THE PANELS WHERE
    THEY PHYSICALLY INTERLOCK. THE HORIZONTAL HISTORICAL PANELS COULD MAYBE
    BE DONE WITH A DUOTONE BOARD OR SOMETHING, TO DIFFERENTIATE THEIR RUGGED
    HISTORY IN FEEL FROM THE ETHEREAL PANELS WITH THE WINGED, ANGELIC
    HERMAPHRODITES AT PLAY. IMAGINE IT IN A SORT OF E.C. DOCUMENTARY STYLE,
    ALTHOUGH RENDERED BY ONE OF THEIR MORE EXPERIMENTAL ARTISTS, LIKE
    KRIGSTEIN OR SOMEBODY. SEE WHAT YOU THINK, ANYWAY, AND I'LL OBVIOUSLY
    LEAVE THE FINAL STYLISTIC DECISIONS IN YOUR MORE-THAN-CAPABLE HANDS.
    RIGHT..THIS FIRST PANEL IS A SEA BED SHOT, SHOWING TWO DOLPHINS AT PLAY.
    THEY ARE SWOOPING DOWN PLAYFULLY TO GRAZE THE OCEAN'S SANDY BOTTOM
    BEFORE SWOOPING UP AGAIN IN A GRACEFUL CURVE. THEY SWIM SO THAT ONE IS
    SLIGHTLY BEHIND THE OTHER, BACK TO BELLY ALTHOUGH PERHAPS NOT QUITE
    TOUCHING, THEIR BROAD HEADS THROWN BACK AS THEY SWOOP BY WITH THEIR
    BELLIES TOWARDS US, A CLOUD OF DISTURBED SEDIMENT BILLOWING UP WHERE
    THEY GRAZE THE OCEAN BED. THEY MIGHT BE MATING OR JUST PLAYING... WE
    CANNOT BE SURE, BUT ON THEIR FLAT CETACEAN FACES THEY WEAR WIDE INHUMAN
    SMILES, ECSTATIC IN THE DEEP-SEA TWILIGHT, SILVER BUBBLES RISING ALL
    AROUND.
    CAP. : Even preceding landfall, things loved freely once, ignoring
    gender. Blind desire made pond-slime fish, turned fish to apes with
    sex, life's glorious engine, churning in the mud.
    CAP. : The animals remember: Dolphins still rotate their matings between
    their own sex and its reverse, their raptures echoing for miles.
