CEREBUS IN HELL? PREVIEW 2021 (Dave's Weekly Update #362)

Hi, Everybody!

Heeeeeere's

That's right, THE NEW ONE: CEREBUS IN HELL? PREVIEW 2021
The COVER:
Click for bigger, so you can try to read all them covers...
The PROMO:

The SOLICIT:

I wasn't consulted on this. Batvark should REALLY be wearing them as earrings...


Speaking of Batvark's wang, Ben Hobbs is eBaying a Virgin cover. And lot of you gonna be VERY disappointed when you try to snipe each other in two days and twenty-some hours...

HERMANN #1 has gotten FOCed.

Next week (the 28th), pick up the Vault of Cerebus

Next month, pick up Spider-Whore.

Signed copies of Vark Wars: Walt's Empire Strikes Back (Signed by Dave, Signed by Dave and me, Signed by me after I scribble out Dave's name, Pretty much available Signed only...). If you've emailed me about it and haven't heard back, it's because I'm a lazy prick and haven't gotten around to taking care of that. I'ma do that this weekend...for REALZ this time...
 
Hi everyone, today's update starts with the addition of the set of 4 cover posters signed by Dave Sim, available as add-on's. Several of you requested these, now you can add them to your pledge!

Next is a note from Dave himself!

Here we are, marking with SPAWN 10 REMASTERED, the end of the first week of the most successful CEREBUS Kickstarter ever. In just seven days -- with the outstanding generosity of our latest pledged backers -- we've eclipsed the revenue totals of all but the first Kickstarter in 2012 (which had been also based in North Carolina and run by long-time CEREBUS fan and CEREBUS TV contributor, John Scrudder) which generated total revenues of $62,000. We seem to be, God willing, on track for surpassing that total -- which has always been orders of magnitude greater than our subsequent efforts -- before too much longer.

I'd like to thank Dagon James of THE WAVERLY PRESS for all his hard work on this, our second CEREBUS Kickstarter. we learned a lot from the CEREBUS #1 KS and continue to learn -- day in and day out -- the best ways to keep long-time and new CEREBUS fans happy and looking forward to receiving their pledge rewards in a timely manner. I'd also like to thank Todd McFarlane for being a Stand-Up Guy when it counted, his team for all their help, and SPAWN, whose long, long cape turned out not to have ended at 500 yards but which, very much the contrary, has ended up spanning nearly three decades and providing the metaphorical and metaphysical coattails we're riding here In October/November 2020. May it be ever thus.

And, of course, I'd like to thank our unfailingly generous pledge partners who are always there for CEREBUS and for me.

I'm marking this great victory for my 44-year-old intellectual property (now more than twice as old as I was when I created him in January of 1976) as I mark all of my professional victories and professional setbacks: with prayer and fasting, working 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. They can kill you, but they can't eat you.

May God bless the worldwide CEREBUS community.

Onward and, God willing, upward.

Dave Sim
21 October 2020
AND:
Here is the first look at the Ashcan trading card, it's a stunner!
It's also a rare one as we printed very few.


AND:

The Ashcan books should be printed and in Dave's hands tomorrow for signing.
I expect to receive them over the weekend and start shipping on Monday (hopefully).
ANNNNNNDDDD:
The stretch goals got updated:
I don't care what they say, 95K is a banana damnit!

Check out the new Cerebus masks and whatnots. PENIS and XXXXX added. (I'm not adding the Second Print cover unless there is actual demand.)

As you all know, Wilf Jenkins was the Aardvark/Vanaheim lawyer for years, and during that time he was on the comp list. Wilf saved all his copies. Dave and Wilf have signed them, and there's a certificate of authenticity. The books will be available from Looking For Heroes, for $10 (CAD) plus $4 dollars shipping to Canada and $5 dollars shipping to the USA. All the money goes to the Food Bank of the Waterloo Region.

Next Time: Stuff. Stuff about Cerebus. Totally.

Dialogue from Reads

A few years ago I scanned all of Dave Sim's notebooks. He had filled 36 notebooks during the years he created the monthly Cerebus series, covering issues #20 to 300, plus the other side items -- like the Epic stories, posters and prints, convention speeches etc. A total of 3,281 notebook pages detailing his creative process. I never really got the time to study the notebooks when I had them. Just did a quick look, scanned them in and sent them back to Dave as soon as possible. So this regular column is a chance for me to look through those scans and highlight some of the more interesting pages.

We last saw a bit from Dave Sim’s 21st notebook back in February of 2019 in Dang Snowy Storm. The notebook covers Cerebus #164 through 187 and 260 pages were scanned. So as we promised Jeff last week, some pages that covered Reads. Though, I’ll ease everyone into it, so instead of walls of  text, which is what starts the pages for Cerebus #175, we’ll go to the three pages I found that cover the dialogue between Po, Cirin, Cerebus, and Astoria for the first couple issues of Reads.

The first page covers all the dialogue in Cerebus #175 between that group. Well, between Po and Cirin. And some of it wasn’t used and other bits were pushed out to Cerebus #176:

Notebook #21, page 147

The line on the page jumps the dialogue to page 41 of Reads with Astoria’s line “And then there were four.” The rest of that dialogue? It isn’t in Cerebus #176. Some of it is what Po says to Astoria in Cerebus #177.  But it isn’t in the same order as in the book, and some of it wasn’t used.

Notebook #21, page 148

And some of that dialogue on page 148 is what Po says to Cirin – the opening line of “Cirin. Astoria had a miscarriage. There is no child.” But the dialogue that is on page 78 of Reads has more added to it then just those two sentences. And Po doesn’t say the line “Why do you keep the charade going?” Instead it was switched to “Still you keep your vendetta alive – another paper tiger.” 

Then on the next page of the notebook we get to what Po says to Cerebus on page 80 of Reads.

Notebook #21, page 149

But instead of most of that dialogue, we get Po talking about the different things that have happen to him, Cerebus, and Cirin, that could be described as powers, but aren’t since they don’t have control over them. 

The next page of the notebook goes into a long page full of text for the Victor Reid part of Cerebus #176. Looking forward though the notebook, some of the above dialogue repeats on page 158, but on that page it resembles more of the finished dialogue we see in the book. Perhaps we’ll take a look at that next week unless Jeff just wants more walls of text. And I mean they are just top to bottom pages of handwritten text.

Spawn #10 Ashcan Cover Progression

 

Benjamin Hobbs:

Dagon James asked Sean, David and me to color the cover for the SPAWN #10 Ashcan. He wanted us to use Dave's art for the WAVERLY PRESS Corner Bullet:


My initial pass had a textured background and Spawn was colored with a soft brush:    

The textured background was replaced with flames and I added some texture to Spawn:


Dagon asked for something simpler.  Sean sent these images:

Liking what Sean had done, I did a quick modification of the coloring I had done:

Then I tried some simple colors using filters:

 

Additionally,  I sent a simplified version of the first color set:

Dagon liked this version, but asked that the TEN in the logo be centered:

I believe this is the version of the cover that will appear on the ashcan.

Next Week: VAULT OF CEREBUS #1 ON SALE at your LCS!

Tuesday, 20 October 2020

Wherein Matt talks out his ass like in an early Jim Carrey movie...

Hi, Everybody!

As you all know, Wilf Jenkins was the Aardvark/Vanaheim lawyer for years, and during that time he was on the comp list. Wilf saved all his copies. Dave and Wilf have signed them, and there's a certificate of authenticity. The books will be available from Looking For Heroes, for $10 (CAD) plus $4 dollars shipping to Canada and $5 dollars shipping to the USA. All the money goes to the Food Bank of the Waterloo Region.

You can order HERMANN #1! (The NEW CiH?), and on the last Wednesday of the month (the 28th), pick up the Vault of Cerebus, And when you're there, you can buy Batvark: PENIS (in stores NOW! (Possibly along with the "Censored For Grandma" Variant, Batvark: XXXXX.).) If you're in the market for a "Virgin" Batvark: Penis (limited to ONLY 253 copies!), Benjamin Hobbs has one on eBay. And, signed copies of Vark Wars: Walt's Empire Strikes Back (Signed by Dave, Signed by Dave and me, Signed by me after I scribble out Dave's name, Pretty much available Signed only...). 

And yesterday's You Don't Know Jack Update:
Hello backers!

This is just a quick note to let you know that MOST (not all-- see below!) packages have been shipped, and have been confirmed to arrive as far-flung as the UK (Thanks, Richard!). If YOUR package has shipped, you will have received an email from us with your tracking number and shipping information. (Thanks, Stamps.com!). 

There are however, a few (approximately 30) boxes that have not yet shipped!

CATEGORY A-- about fifteen shipments are awaiting a single replacement book! One of our boxes of Hermitage Awesomes books was waylaid, but has at long last made its way to its destination, Carson's House of Shipping in Alabama. These fifteen shipments will go out tomorrow, so look for your tracking info then!

Our apologies if you're one of the fifteen pledgers impacted by this. We really appreciate your support, and hope that you'll be holding your books in your hands very soon! Domestic shipping has been surprisingly fast so far, so that could be as soon as Saturday for some of you.

CATEGORY B-- about fifteen other backers STILL haven't filled out their survey, or sent us their address. Please please pretty please, fill out your survey!

I got a message from somebody who was looking for their package, and it turned out that they had filled out the survey, but hadn't submitted it. 

So, if Mr. Postman hasn't gotten you your rewards, maybe check to make sure you submitted your survey: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1349357665/you-dont-know-jack


Lastly, I wanted to let you know this is likely our next-to-last update for this project! The very next update will contain your FREEBIE GOODIE DIGITAL DOWNLOADS. And following that, targeted downloads will be sent to the groups of you who pledged for additional digital rewards.

We wanted to wait until everyone had a chance to see these books in print, as they were designed to be seen, before you peeped at them on a screen.

Carson and I have been discussing different possible follow-up projects to this, including the Big One-- a completed(ish) Strange Death of Alex Raymond! That's right, the 500-pound gorilla is on the horizon. More on this as soon as we have more info for you!


All the best,

Sean
I'm including this again to remind you to make sure you got your survey filled out. 
Please!!!

The Remastered Spawn #10 Kickstarter is at $48,780 (which is more than the Remastered Cerebus #1 raised), with twenty-three days to go. Speaking of the Remastered Cerebus #1, limited overstock is still available at cerebusoverload.com, of the book and the goodies.

And the Spawn #10 Kickstarter has stretch goals now:
What's the "Mystery" goal?

Well, ya didn't hear it from me, but it MIGHT be a Todd McFarlane exclusive cover.

"A Todd McFarlane EXCLUSIVE COVER?!?!?!?"

You didn't hear that from me.

I have NO idea what it is.

It MIGHT be an exclusive Todd Cover, it MIGHT be a Cerebus Action Figure. It MIGHT be Spawn #10 in Turkish. It MIGHT be a banana.

I don't @#$%ING know...

"I call bullcrap! You're 'in the know', you got your finger on the pulse of Cerebus fandom and $#!*..."

You'd think that, but you'd be wrong.

"You knew about the full-size Secret History of The Counterfiet Cerebus #1..."

True. But I don't know aardvark dick about this one.

"You know the street address of the Off White House..."

And I'll never tell... 

But I don't know $#!* about the 95K stretch goal.

Honest.

"You wouldn't tell us even if you knew..."

But I don't.

Honest.
Feel free to make wildly inaccurate guesses in the comments!

"Hey where's the link to The Spawn #10 Kickstarter, you long eared galoot?" you ask.

Hey screw you! My mom says my ears are perfec...I mean, I'm getting to it, I'm getting to it...

Well, the Remastered Spawn #10 Kickstarter is $1,805 dollars OVER the Kickstarter for the Remastered Cerebus #1, with 245 LESS backers, and twenty-four days to go. Speaking of the Remastered Cerebus #1, limited overstock is still available at cerebusoverload.com, of the book and the goodies.

And speaking of Spawn #10, in the FIRST update, they let us know that:
We just added a limited number of original copies of the 1993 edition of SPAWN 10 for those of you who don't already own this issue. It makes the perfect companion to this new edition of the book.
Somebody on the Faceybook Group commented on this turn of events:
Wow, 15 bucks for the original Spawn #10 as an add-on? You can buy them all day long on ebay in mint condition for 2 or 3 dollars. Are the "add-on" ones signed or something?

Welp, what do you think Bunky:

I kept the pictures large so you can click on them and obsess over the background details...

You're welcome Margaret...

And just for giggles, the "abandoned" Spawn #10 Cover:

Well, it WAS a cover, then I added to it and made it PERFECT!

Next Time: More Spawn #10 silliness?

John Glismann: This is from the back of Fish Police # 1 (Summer 1985). It was the first issue so obviously there were no letters yet. The gag was that the creative team were writing notes to each other. It’s clear that Cerebus was the gold standard of the independents at this moment in time. There are also multiple Cerebus mentions in the letters pages of Fish Police numbers 3 and 4.

Stephen Bolhafner in the comments: I loved Fish Police!
Like the first 64 (? 63? however many it was) issues of Cerebus, one guy did pretty much everything - although I think he actually did have a letterer, which of course Dave never needed. I always thought Steve Moncuse was a better writer than he ever got credit for.

Michael Norwitz: Has anyone seen this book? It has a (non-Simian) Cerebus story in it, taking place post-300. Not by Alan Moore, alas. http://www.calibercomics.com/the-geek-of-the-gods.html

Lee Bentley: I really enjoyed this tape. I wish they'd gotten Steve Ditko on-camera, but his voice-over is still pretty effective. Dave's on-camera persona has only gotten cooler over the years.

John Glismann: Back cover of Dreadstar # 13 (from Marvel’s Epic Comics. August 1984). It’s an ad promoting the first color Cerebus story in Epic Illustrated. Just for context, I’m also posting the ad on the back of that month’s Fantastic Four # 269. It’s something about video games.

Lee Bentley: OK, this pretty much confirms that Astoria was going to try to do the final ascension herself (with Artemis' help) before being "sparkled" away to murder the Lion of Serrea instead.

Larry Wooten: The mail was very, very good to me.


Larry in the comments: Personalized to Larry. How could I pass that up?Also the issue number is 11, the same as my CAN# 11. I do like that Cootie. Coincidence? You decide.

Indie cartoonist and long-time Cerebus fan Andrew Pepoy has a Kickstarter ending in a week! And word on the street (i.e. from Mr. Pepoy ) is that his 2013 Cerebus pin-up is going to be in the next Simone and Ajax collection... A worthy project worth your eyeballs...

Lee Holden: Is it true that the later phone books have annotations that were not in the individual issues?
