Cerebus Vol. 1

Cerebus Vol. 1

Cover by: Gerhard
By: Sean Michael Robinson
Art by: Dave Sim
Written by: Dave Sim
Cover by: Dave Sim
Lettered by: Dave Sim
Price: $9.99

Intellectual, entertaining, and though-provoking, Cerebus was the longest running independent black and white comic of all time! Cerebus, a small, gray, and chronically ill-tempered aardvark, makes his living as a barbarian, but soon his adventures will lead to much greater things!

Completely remastered in 2016 from the best available sources on a page-by-page basis--original art, photo negatives, and Dave Sim's personal file copies of the original issues. This edition also includes a lavishly-illustrated 6,000 word essay on the history of Cerebus, contextualizing this monumental work for current and future readers.

Buy now on comiXology!

So, ya know, NEAT!

More on this tomorrow, and then on Monday...

Next Time: If all six parts are uploaded, "Please Hold For Dave Sim" for January. If not, then I'm good and fucked aren't I?

Why did you format that way you stupid piece of shit!


(Everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?)

The Youtube comments section, which has never been a bastion of positive human existence, has devolved into a breeding ground for mouth breathing idiots (well, just one in particular so far as I'm making my way closer to the most recent). Whoever runs the Cerebus Online account should consider policing ita little.

On the topic of Miller and Monroe, my father worked on a fairly extensive landscaping project with them in Connecticut, involving building a pond on their property.

Dad's told me that Miller was very protective of Monroe and would do his best to stand between Monroe and Dad (or his co-worker) any time they had to discus the project.

Dad also says that at one point in the project Marilyn walked a bit away towards a fenced off part of the property; when she went to swing her leg over the low fence all three men (Miller, Dad, and co-worker) stopped to watch her: she was wearing jeans, and in the mid / late 50's this was quite uncommon for women.

In case anyone is interested, Dave is currently being vilified online (again) via Twitter and Youtube and by multiple sources for his relationship with an underage girl. Ethan Van Sciver has now disassociated himself from Sim:

THE TRUTH ABOUT DAVE SIM (HIS Relationship with a 13 YEAR OLD)

Oh we know "anonymous", we know...


Al said...

I can't really blame Ethan for doing so, but I still think that's a shame.

Mouse Skull Entertainment said...


I can. EVS is...

Ya know what? I'ma save it for Monday...

I don't know Umbrella guy but he sounds like someone desperately trying to cover up a very heavy southern accent.

Umbrella guy sounds like a (very) poor man's Matthew McConaughey. The way he kept emphasizing in that dull, smug voice -- "Now this is all in Dave's own words", as if to say "there's no other possible take on this than to see Dave as a terrible person" was so obnoxious.

Sean R said...

Ugh, that video. Just terrible terrible terrible out of context crap.

Re: Comixology--their credits listing is totally wacky! My name was listed in the "OTHER" category (reflecting the essay authorship) and it's displaying as "BY"? Ugh. I've asked Jay to remove my credit so the credits appear correctly.

Jeff said...

Okay, b/c I'm getting old and memory is not a huge priority and b/c I've been hit on the head a few too many times, I'm not sure, but wasn't Comixology the company that Dave took about half of the Cerebus Archive comic book to? And wasn't Comixology the company that was about six months late on every delivery and then just stopped delivering at all? And isn't Comixology the company that still owes me three back issues of the Cerebus Archive comic?

If I'm wrong, mea culpa.
