In a couple of days, Dave and Ger art for sale.

And The Coronavirus Trilogy: CRISIS IN INFINITE QUARANTINE, BATVARK: CORONAVIRUS, SUPER CEREBUS VS COVID-19, and the fourth part from Saturday: The League of Extraordinary Corona. And the Daily Cerebus in Hell? strips. Which have been written and assembled for you at no cost, so if you wanna maybe buy some High Society Red State buttons, or Blue State buttons that'd be great.

And, word 'round the campfire is that Diamond is opening and shipping around May 20th, either way, Green Dante/Green Virgil is the next Cerebus in Hell issue to ship.


Oliver Simonsen:

It's great to see Cerebus issue #1 getting a lot of love with the new kickstarter launched this week as that is the issue our film is based on.

Dan Eckhart asks: Does Cerebus (phonebook 1) contain more Sim-written Introduction than is contained in Swords 1-6?
Comic and Film critic Kyle Pinion in the comments: I don't think it has any of the Swords intros or anything of its relative length from Dave himself. The new phonebooks do have terrific afterwards though by Sean.
Sean Robinson: As Kyle says, the new printing of Volume one (has a REMASTERED EDITION banner, printed in JAN 2018 I believe?) has a long essay and lots of bonus stuff. And looks AMAZING (if I do say so myself)>

And lastly here's a Public Service announcement: do not fax a phone number:)

Thanks, Oliver! Didn't realize Latter Days details would be in the film too. Very interesting, if I do say so myself.

Brian, Dave wants to get more involved which is awesome - he wrote a piece that he acted with camera, lighting and even wardrobe change. He's not just a master storyteller, but an incredible actor. He fully committed to the material and it was a riveting performance. The humor didn't come from punchlines, but rather his fully realized characters. If he can sustain that for the rest of the script he has planned - he'll get standing ovations everywhere despite it appearing to be tricky material.
