Contains TMNT volume 1 issues 1-11, all 4 original micro- series & the Fugitoid one shot! A rare comic as its one of the very few things that David Sim let Cerebus cameos rarely get reprinted!"

Guy Herbert, Director of Literary Agency "Marjacq", quotes Cerebus:
- If you could have any amount of money - any amount at all - how much would you want?
- All of it.


Margaret Liss: "So I won a picture off ebay that says it is "Dave Sims, comic book creator". Looking at the thumbnail I recognized Dave Sim and the Cerebus muppet. Then when I got it, I looked closer, is that Ger Hard standing in the chimney?
The picture is also stamped Dec 16 1992, Houston Chronicle Library."

Margaret adds: It looks like it was probably for this article:

Eolake Stobblehouse comments: "The "rock star" years. Hearing about the expenditures in those times, my goodness how much money was he making??"

John Christian expands: "That would have been for his appearance in Houston at Bedrock City for the final stop on the 92 US Tour (the stop immediately following his appearance at my store). And regarding EolakeStobblehouse's comment about expenditures, I can personally vouch. Dave hired a stretch limo to take himself, me, Martin, Colleen, and Diane from Killeen all the way down to Houston. I don't know what it cost him, but it couldn't have been cheap."

Kenneth W. Lieck shares:

Will Gray asks and Margaret Liss answers: Cerebus is 229 years old in issue 300, at least according to Alexx's timeline

Marcus Montgomery: "Imma drink a big glass of warm salty water and it clear up alla my coronavirus. (Apparently this doesn't actually work.)"

Well thanks Oliver!

Next Time: "Meanwhile back at the Regency..."
