New Column: [Insert Title Here.] by Oliver S.

Hi, Everybody!

Oliver S: 
So I asked Matt, hey, I was thinking maybe I could do my "Facebook column" of "Cerebus around the world and web" on AMOC, with links to various news articles/instagram/facebook/twitter posts. Both Dave and Tim on separate occasions asked if I would do a regular column about the film on AMOC, but I felt it was too soon and it still is...but I'll add some previews, behind-the-scenes and whatnot. I would have suggested this sooner, but frankly was afraid of the commitment and it's going to be more work - rather than just slap something onto the facebook group whenever something I'm working on is loading or saving.
Anyway, thank you so much to Matt for giving the go ahead, so here we go - my first AMOC column with the latest from the last couple of days. I'm btw Oliver S:).

" first he was but a curiosity...". A stranger in a strange town. A look at the Cerebus film progress 

Not to start off on a morbid note, but here is an obituary Professor of English at Indiana State University for 48 years, Steven Edward Connelly:
"A graduate of the University of Michigan, he always maintained the highest literary standards, acquiring significant collections of the works of Scrooge McDuck, Cerebus the Aardvark, Conan the Barbarian, and more, decorating his office extensively in these images that his students might always feel the gravity of literature in his presence."

Here Mike Sterling confesses his love for Cerebus and Swamp Thing and the mightiness and specificness of Dave's micro targeting PR

On Instagram Pop Culture Reviewer Roy Miskatonic posts yet another Cerebus "motion" comic

Artist and PodCaster Richard Grzela speculates on Savage Dragon overtaking Cerebus as it has 52 issues to go

Speaking of Cerebus and Spawn, CBR speculates if the Joker film will help get Spawn movie made, where they add that Todd "...has earned a place into The Guinness Book of World Records. The previous holder of the record was Dave Sims' 300-issue series Cerebus." I would think the two would each have their respective records, that Dave's will still hold.

"MarvelMan" spotlights the Cerebus/Spawn crossover issue

Writer, comic geek and horror movie reviewer Jason Grey point's out how a Marvel character is a nod to Cerebus. In a seperate thread comic shop "Comics on Green" does as well

Well that's that for this time. That took longer than i thought it would lol. But doesn't everything?
Btw Blair Kitchen, who Dave spends his Christmases with, has his animation featured in the trailer for the upcoming NetFlix Dr Suess "Green Eggs & Ham" series

And one last thing: did you know Cerberus is misspelled more often than not? You are not alone Dave, you are not alone. Here is but a sampling - will have to make this a regular column:)

[So, Oliver sent me three emails worth of links, and I asked if he wanted them run as three columns, or one column. He said one. But they're formatted as separate columns. I don't feel like cutting together into a cohesive whole, so here's the second one...-Matt]

Another "Cerebus around the world and web" already? If I'm going to keep doing this I might need to come up with banner...also playing around with film poster ideas...

Since I'm no longer posting these links every couple of days in Cerebus facebook group I figure I should maybe share a little bit what is going on over there over here since some folks like Jeff Seiler are very active here, but I'm not sure if he even sees what is going on there. Btw Jeff Seiler is incredible as Elrod in our film

Kanye West is a big doofus. Someone once asked me what I thought of Kim Kardashian's enourmous ass, and I said, "I'm not really a Kanye fan."

That's a good one.

I like Joel McHale's old joke "Kim Kardashian, who's known for having a big ass and a sex tape..."


Jeff said...

Well, Ah say, *well*, speaking of asses, Ah can say (speak, that is, as the foremost authority on bulbous *buttocks*), the little guy in the bunny suit doesn't really have one. Er, *two*, that is.

But, Ah say, *butt*, y'all should get a lookie-see at his *tail*!

Appendage, that is.
