Fascination with Gore

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 looked at pages 1 through 5 of Dave Sim's notebook #30 just last week in Seemingly Lead a Charmed Life. It is the notebook of what Dave would say to Cerebus in Minds.

I figured we'd start back up with pages 6 & 7:

Notebook 30 pages 6 & 7
Notebook 30 pages 8 & 9

Notebook 30 pages 10 & 11
The dialogue doesn't appear to be used in Minds, not at least that I can see.  Dave talking about what a creator does to his creation.

Was Dave still claiming to be an atheist at this point?
