Gustave Verbeek before the Comics

Neuvième Art 2.0, the online magazine of the Cité internationale de la bande dessinée e de l’image has a long, interesting article on Gustave Verbeek (or Verbeck as the author, prefers to call him):

Also of interest from Töpfferiana:littératures graphiques du XIXe et début XXe siècles:

On this blog, my “Gustave Verbeek’s Cruel Tales and the Nonsense Tradition,” from The Upside-Down World of Gustave Verbeek: The Complete Sunday Comics 1903-1905, edited by Peter Maresca, foreword by Martin Gardner. Palo Alto, CA: Sunday Press Books, 2009.

Below are the strips Verbeek contributed to the comic magazine Le Rire in 1894-1895:

This one, from Andy Konkykru’s Early Comics Archive, is in the same style, but perhaps not from “Le Rire”:
