[I bought this. The title is: Cerebus: Going Homer -Matt]


James Windsor Smith exclusive scoop - the truth can now be told.
James: "Me hanging out with Dave sim and Jack kirby...Dave had already started cerebus; I suggested he do 300 issues and he ran with it!"

David Hartman: Ok, so here's my copy of C the A #2. Not too bad for 15 bucks from a guy who wasn't even familiar with the book when I bought it from him years ago.

Larry Wooten: recent pickups

James Windsor Smith shares

Keith Callbeck: Is there a list of 2020 CiH? issues that made it to the stores? I have lost track.
Margaret Liss in the comments:
This is what I have listed in my checklist so far. The yellow highlighted ones I either don't have or haven't added to the checklist. Oh, and a second printing of Batvark Penis should be coming out as well.

Sean Michael Robinson in the comments: Coronavirus and Diamond shut down bumped a month or two. The next year's worth of issues are already complete.

Margaret Liss: This came in the mail today

Margaret Liss in the comments: It uses the same art as the t-shirt for the same tour stop:

Weldom Adams Cataloger at Heritage Auctions: This bit of fun was sitting #OnMyDesk the other day. Fans of Eddie Campbell's Bacchus will also appreciate it.

Steve Peters shares Rick Veitch's post

Gary Boyarski proposes Dave and Ger get Walk of Fame

Margaret Liss: Ahhh, yes. That time I went on a beer run with Gerhard and a few others. Then playing diamondback with Dave laughing at us.

Margaret Liss in the comments: As if he is one to talk, reading that . . .drivel.
[That's my wife's copy of In Touch magazine. Dave was REALLY interested in reading it. As he said, "It's like having twelve girlfriends at once." Also, R.I.P. John-El... -Matt]

Margaret Liss: 8.5” X 12”, BW. Unauthorized use of Cerebus art in concert promo sheet. My copy has pinholes in the four corners from what I’m assume is being posted. Yes, the art is not straight in the paper and part of it falls off the paper in the lower right.

Margaret Liss: Did anyone here go to this show or the signing for the show?
Postcard send out for the “Pieces of our Minds” show at Four Color Images in NY.

Steve Peters in the comments: I was there. It was at that show that Ger told me he inked with a Hunt 102 pen quill and that soon became my instrument of choice. He also drew a little picture of it for me on an ATM receipt and I had that saved for the longest time. Maybe I still do, but no idea where.

Matt Coleman: My brother-in-law past away recently and we are just starting to go through his massive collection of comics and art. Cerebus was one of his favorites and we’re proud to carry on his collection and preserve it. So far it looks like he had every issue and most of the paperbacks. Just wanted to share a few items with everyone. It’s been great to be able to start going through everything and start reading more Cerebus.

Thanks Oliver!

All New, All Different Rigamarole:
I heard from the Waverly Press:
Hi Matt,
Hope you had a nice new year.
The new and improved Cerebus Overload site is live. There is some new information on the Regency Edition page and I'll be adding to it gradually (with images) over the next few weeks as we gear up for the launch... almost there!
The Spawn ten books are available on the site for pre-order though supplies will be very limited since we won't have a lot of remainders beyond the actual Kickstarter orders. There are a lot of variants... all rare.
Lastly, there is a sitewide 10% off New Years sale until January 17th. 
Anyone who previously bookmarked the page should follow this updated link:
Heritage has some interesting "Dave Sim" bits
Your store will be on sale:
Jan 13 – 16
Jan 27 – 29
Tell your fans! Remind them that everything will be up to 35% off! That means $13 tees, $20 phone cases, $30 hoodies, and way more.
Anyway, I'm selling something on the eBays. A big bundle of "rare" Cerebus in Hell? comics, including a copy of Vark Wars and Vark Wars: Walt's Empire Strikes Back that I took with me on vacation so they've been to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Next Time: I had something planned, let's hope I remember it...

That game of Diamondback was a lot of fun. IIRC, Margaret, Matt, and I each brought a deck so that all five (?) players could get a good mix of cards. We actually did play for sections of rice cakes. Ale was copious. Dave seemed very much to enjoy the epithets hurled around the room at the futility of trying to win the unwinnable card game that he invented. I think I once got the best available hand, but, of course, the pot was next to nothing.

Fun times!
