Cerebus Around the World and Web #20 by Oliver Simonsen

Hi, Everybody!

The new one: Attractive Cousins

VARK WARS: WALT'S EMPIRE STRIKES BACK FOC is the 26th (I think...)

The four different High Societys.


As it is Sunday, Oliver Simonsen once again dons his leather jacket, fires up his V-8 Interceptor and goes out into the wastelands to bring us links to Cerebus/Dave Sim/Gerhard content from the doomed wreckage of humanity's end...

Cerebus
- 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
