# 2 – Grover

| November 2, 2011 | 0 Comments


Grover is one of the first Other Land beings that Merrill meets.  He stands about six feet tall, and his appendages are springy coils of metal.  Grover is a bit brash and impulsive, and has a quick temper.  However, he is a loyal friend.  Although he doesn’t sleep, he does need occasional rest.  While resting, he pulls his head, arms, and legs into his body like a turtle.

[In 1974, at the age of 12, I drew a series of “comic books” detailing the adventures of Merrill, a 15-year-old human boy, in the Other Land, an invisible dimension which co-exists with our own.  The characters I am submitting throughout the 30 Days are the inhabitants of the Other Land,]

About the Author ()

I am a middle school teacher. Back in 1974, I created a series of comic books based on the adventures of the members of the Difference Club. (Anybody remember Bic Banana markers?) The Difference Club consisted of humans, aliens, elementals, and other beings dedicated to one cause: protecting earth from ... the Creatures. I still have these books. Last year, I decided to write another story about them. It's not a terribly original idea, but I wondered what would happen if I discovered that, by writing them in 1974, they actually came into existence in another dimension? How would they feel about me leaving them alone for decades? I promise that you WILL be entertained, if only by laughing at my artwork.
