Cerebus is Tired - Aye. Aye.

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've only looked at Dave Sim's notebook #22 once before, back in September 2014 in Thesbian Tavern Tramp Drunk. Notebook #22 covers issues #213 to 241 with 160 pages, only 96 pages scanned, 12 blank pages and 62 pages missing.

On page 24 we see some notes Dave wrote about Rick's Story.

Notebook #22, page 24
We also see some dialogue from Guys of the many voices in Cerebus' head.
