This is my favorite batch yet!

I have made the Hillary + Trump = Hump joke a few times in the lasy couple of days. America got Humped!

I never would have suspected Dave was a fan of Biggie Smalls.

Good week. Also, CIH?#0 was quite good. Read it after I looked at every page of the Cerebus Cover Art Treasury, whilst enjoying my fried catfish dinner at Famous Dave's BBQ, whilst listening to a Fleetwood Mac cover band that actually didn't suck. Too much.

My favorite CCAT comment by Dave? The one about the high tea set they went out and bought for the cover shoot for the second epilogue after Jaka's Story, regarding the gilded spoon: "I still eat my breakfast cereal with it every day." You go, Dave!

Also bought Heavy Metal, with Grant Morrison's and Gerhard's sepia-toned homage to "Chinatown". Gerhard is totally, completely, enjoyably, still getting it done, at the top of his field. Much and many props to Mr. Morrison for picking Ger to join him on this multi-issue ride.

And, then, there was the really surprising Avengers #1 (or, 1.1; or whatever) that looked like a 1960s Avengers comic. That was fun! Especially the throwback letters pages.

We should do some throwback Aardvark Comment pages someday, Dave. Oh, wait. We kinda do, every Saturday (well, almost every Saturday), here at AMOC. Still, I kinda miss the coconut telegraph days of guys writing letters to you so that they could send messages to their friends. And, Connie.

Ah, Connie.

But, I digress.

The Cerebus Cover Art Treasury was, almost, well worth the wait, even though my copy (the only one they ordered) arrived damaged. Slightly. But, still...

It is gorgeous. Fantastic reproduction values, on a par with the Cerebus Archives prints. Great notes, especially if one wishes to take a tour of Southern Ontario and France to see all of the places that comprised the photo covers.

Dave?

Ger?

Both y'all...

Thank you!

Oh, yeah, include Florida in your Cerebus Covers travel plans, as well as Puerto Rico, and maybe a couple of other places...

That strip is presumably by Sandeep, but Dave has referenced B.I.G. before.

Sandeep Atwal said...

lol...actually all these strips are by me...but yes, Dave has referenced Biggie before. He keeps wanting me to address him The Notorious S.I.M., but I refuse!!!

To follow up on the Nov-08 "Trumpton" line....

"Skew, Spew, Barmy Hairdo, Cut Throat, Bigot and Smug."

Possibly this may only make sense for UK tv viewers

One of my favourite stories Ken Viola -- the Rolling Stones and Grateful Dead roadie and Cerebus fan -- would tell was of going to a hotel room where John Lennon had agreed to meet with a few people who were trying to organize the first Beatles convention in NYC. Give them a slim chance of talking him into attending. And Lennon had his guitar with him and asked what Beatles song they wanted him to play. And all the songs they named were Paul McCartney songs. "No, Paul wrote that one." "No, Paul wrote that one, too." Ken finally suggested -- whatever it was -- a John Lennon song. "That's one of mine!" And then he played and sang it.

I think that's one of those Metaphysics things, where the more... "acerbic?"...personality has that happen to him. Same as all the Rolling Stones insiders love Keith and hate Mick.

Long-winded way of saying: so far everyone's favourite CIH? strips have been Sandeep's. :)

I like the whole batch this time.

Well, when I was at the Rolling Stones concert in St. Louis, front row center, there was a camera dolley track in front of me, and behind that was a small stage where the guys could come down the stairs and play for the camera. Live on HBO. Steel Wheels tour, I think.

So, at one point, here comes Keef down the steps, preening for the camera, six feet in front of me.

Pretty good concert.

I also got felt up by a record executive's 20-something girlfriend, who then proceeded to take off her little black dress, and who was then, immediately, escorted out by her girlfriends.

Pretty good concert!
