The Ol' AMOC Mailbags got ol' comics...

Hi, Everybody!

The ol' AMOC Mailbag got the following from Will Collier:
I was flipping through some scans of Howard Chaykin’s “American Flagg!” series from the mid-80’s (which heavily, um, influenced a great many comics and movies and movie comics since) from First Comics.  Along the way I ran across the attached columns, a “History of Independent Comics,” which referenced Dave and Cerebus early on, and then included direct interviews with Dave and Deni.  Aarvark-Vanaheim also ran ads in some First books back then, and I’ve included one of those ads from 1984 as well.

COMIC LINK AUCTIONS!!! Where you can get: a Platinum edition of Birthday card #1 signed by NEAL ADAMS, and DAVE SIM, with a NEAL ADAMS Superman stamp. OR, a Gold edition of Birthday card #1 signed by NEAL ADAMS and DAVE SIM with NO STAMP. Or, OR, a print of the Cover to GREEN DANTE/GREEN VIRGIL #1 (Pretend you're Seiler. (Ya know, without the Carmen Miranda outfit...)) there are three of them, but one of them shall be mine! (Ya know, as long as none of you guys got more money than me...)

Wanna give Dave and David And Davjamin... er, Benjamin, and Sean the monies, but don't wanna deal with the hassle of going to a comicbook store and tracking down a copy of the latest Cerebus in Hell? One-Shot (The LGBTQetc. People is the next one coming,)? Well, we've got you covered.

If you're in the market to dress like Dave Sim, you can buy a "Matt D's A Moment of Cerebus" t-shirt right here. Or, if you're one of those nostalgia buffs who likes the earlier funnier A Moment Of Cerebus posts, the Tim W. Logo is available too.

The remastered Volume 1 is available digitally for $9.99.

If you want this:

Bidding's at $19.88 (USD), thanks to Larry Wooten! (Unless John Christian's $40 bid IS for Please Hold art, and not for:)

New Dave Sim art!
Which Seiler has bid Fifty dollars USD for. (Must be nice to be loaded...)

If you want EITHER the Please Hold art, OR the New Cerebus art, feel free to comment here, OR send a message to and say "I WANT __________! And I bid ______! GIMME GIMME GIMME!" and fill in the first blank with which art you want, and the second blank with what you're willing to pay for it.

If you got a couple of extra bucks and want to do a fellow Cerebus fan a solid, Friend of the Blog Mike Battaglia has a go fund me here

All the Postcard from Hell? #2 surveys are in, and the cards are at the printers. Maybe they're even in the mail, I don't know, nobody tells me anything...

If you're looking for Cerebus the Barbarian Messiah, or Conversations. You could click those links, or these: Conversations, and Cerebus the Barbarian Messiah (must be nice to have options...)

Next Time: Blues Clues! (Yeah, I don't know what it means either...)

The Please Hold drawing, then if you click the part ewhere it says "New Dave Sim art!" under the Cerebus drawing, it'll take you to the last weekly update where Dave talks about what's up for auction.
