"Threefiftyseven" shares Fantasy Advertiser No. 115, 1989 and adds: "Not sure if Dave mentioned this on a number of occasions, but otherwise I would call this the "interior of a submarine" interview, if you get my drift."
[I'ma stealing this for tomorrow.-Matt]
1986 Neal Adams Cerebus cover and Dave Sim story from Anything Goes! (Yes, Cerebus helps raise funds for Fantagraphics.)

[You can read it here.-Matt]
Theodore Trout shares: I did the 'Small Potatoes' back-up feature in Cerebus Bi-weekly #8, for which I was paid the popely sum of $150 Canadian dollars, the most I ever made for a page of comics." Check out his comic "Sluggo Slug and his pal Slugbait"

he also btw made a wonderful Furry Freak Bros animation

Sky High made a wonderful animated Cerebus gif (click link to see animation) with more coming!

Comic and Film critic Kyle Pinion: "Well you learn something new every day, and today I learned that the creators of one of my favorite game series of all time, Quest For Glory, included a (very minor) character based on Cerebus in the third installment.

Kenneth W. Lieck: "Another Proto-Cerebus from the Golden Age, taken from a 1941 story by Bernard Bailey and A-V alum Jerome Siegel. (Only including pages with the pseudo-varks)"

Jason Wade shares Mike Kitchen's old comic

Mike Kitchen comments: "... always thought it would be fun to do another 5 pages of that guy. I remember being 18 years old and showing this comic to Dave at a convention and he told me that Neal Adams had a character with the same name... D'OH!"
Mike Kitchen is a Senior Animator at RockStar Games, which is behind some of the biggest video games ever such as Grand Theft Auto - check out Mike's current comic creation "Spy Guy" here

Steve Peters:
A different take on Dante's Lucifer. As in the Dore version that Dave often uses, he is half-submerged in ice and has a human body half hanging out of his mouth.

Steve Peters participated in yesterday's Free Comic Book Day remotely (lotsa Cerebus in those comics)
[*cough* ripoff *cough* (just kidding Steve...)-Matt]
Steve Peters shares Rick Veitch dream about Dave Sim published in Rick's comic Rare Bit Fiends circa 1994

Thirtyseven: Cerebus t-shirt hand-painted by my then-partner, Christmas 1991, I think.

"Thirtyseven": Wish I'd photographed this when there was still something to see. I bought this in London's Forbidden Planet in 1990 or 1991, and at the time the hologram was only about 2/3 visible. I dug it out recently when Cerebus re-appeared in my life, and was disappointed to see it is now totally dark.
I can't help think this means something.

Margaret Liss: 'Mine isn’t fade. hard to get a picture of. Makes me wonder if heat would mess with it."

Larry Wooten: "My case is cracked and is held together by a couple of rubber bands but no fading. Had to open it and check if it had the paperwork inside. It does."

Paul Poirer: Thought you guys might like a look-see at my new 'Night Light`. Had 4 made, wanna ship one to Dave soon.


Thanks Oliver!

Next Time: That interview I swiped...
