Notes for Cerebus #136

MARGARET LISS:

A few years ago I scanned all of Dave Sim's notebooks. He had filled 36 notebooks during the years he created the monthly Cerebus series, covering issues #20 to 300, plus the other side items -- like the Epic stories, posters and prints, convention speeches etc. A total of 3,281 notebook pages detailing his creative process. I never really got the time to study the notebooks when I had them. Just did a quick look, scanned them in and sent them back to Dave as soon as possible. So this regular column is a chance for me to look through those scans and highlight some of the more interesting pages.

Last week we saw a couple of pages from Dave Sim’s 18th notebook used in the creation of Cerebus in Sketches from Melmoth. The notebook covers Cerebus #136 though 141. So we do get one issue on the tail end of Jaka’s Story: Cerebus #136. And on page 20 there are a couple of sketches of what pages 1 and 2 of Cerebus #136 look like:

Notebook #18, page 20

While both pages have the drawing in the middle third of the page, the text is only one the outside of the page – so on the right on page one and one the left on page two. Perhaps Dave was trying to get a sense of how the pages would look with the text on either side.

One the next page it dives right into the discussion with Mrs Snatcher Thatcher (yes, that joke never gets old to me), Jaka, and Rick. 

Notebook #18, page 21

The text and the rough face sketches follow along with the finished page 3. There are even a few sketches of Rick at the bottom of the page.

Hi, Everybody!

Hello Backers,

We are currently hip deep in the fulfillment process but Dave has made some decisions “going forward” (i.e. the next campaign). We will be sending out surveys as soon as possible when the camapaign ends, immediately after if possible (in most cases it should be) and then:

1) 24 hours after the survey is sent we will process the backer’s reports that have come in and begin fufilling those orders.
Batch #1.

2) 1 week later we will process any surveys that have come in.
Batch #2.

3) When all remaining surveys come we will process the final orders.
Batch #3.

Backer numbers will not change during this process. The backer order is always determined by Kickstarter based on when you pledge. When a backer drops out of a campaign their number is dropped completely. When the campaign is over we manually adjust so that everyone after the backer that dropped out is moved up and we don’t have any gaps in the numbering. These numbers will not change no matter which batch includes your pledge.

This is for the buyers that always fill their survey out immediately to get the fulfillment process going as soon as possible. As dave said, “we’re all done with this ‘no child left behind’ approach.

Another change to way we usually do things is that we will no longer accept orders when a backer bypasses all the choices offered on a campaign and just adds payment along with a list of what they want to buy. To make the Kickstarter campaign run smoothly and easily for everyone we will limit the kickstarter part of the campaign to only what is available as a tier or add-on. Stretch rewards and additional items added during or at the end of the campaign are possible in any campaign at any time, but not necessarilly every time.

It’s not that we had a lot of problems with backers adding payment and then listing out what they want to purchase. This ususally happens only a few times for each campaign, but those types of orders will now be handled by

CEREBUSDOWNLOADS.COM

The cerebus downloads offer isn’t a general thing. When Aardvark-Vanaheim offers items through Kickstarter we are partnering with them. We will not undermine that by offering the same thing on Cerebus Downloads the same time the Kickstarter campaign is live. This is largely directed at the backers that “HATE” surprises. There was more than one forceful declaration of this hatred. The solution for these potential backers is to wait until the campaign has ended and then order ANY ITEM offered during the Kickstarter campaign much in the same way additional copies were offered after some campaigns at the IndieGoGo site. The time period this offer will be available is not yet determined.

All of the items offered for sale after the campaign will be exactly the same as what is offered during the Kickstarter campaign. They will be considered a part of the same campaign. Waiting to purchase late in the process will leave you with a higher number. It becomes a matter of priorities. Which do you hate more? Surprises or higher numbers?

In either case, your CAN number is yours and it will not change unless you let Dave know you no longer wish to use it. 
THE DAVE SIM RETURN POLICY
If you receive a comic book from one of these campaigns that you are unhappy with it will be replaced for no additional charge. Because these comic books are individually numbered it is important that you send the damaged or defective comic book back to Dave so he can replace it with the same number and then personally destroy the defective copy. This ensures an accurate numbering system for these very limited editions.

If you are returning a comic to Dave for a replacement it will ultimately be destroyed once it has been replaced. It is not necessary to spend a lot of money to package and return the item. If it’s already damaged there’s no need to treat it gently. No matter what you spend to ship it back, be sure to let Dave know and he will refund your shipping cost. No additional charge means NO additional charge.

Hal Foster: This Is Your life

Hi, Everybody!

So, looking at The Strange Death of Alex Raymond:

Dave starts making it sound like he's gonna break down the three main schools of Comics Art, but kinda meanders.

But he FINALLY gets there:








As Dave wrote:
"As is the case with all such APEX-DWELLING ALPHA MALES..."
"...they were ZEALOUS OF and JEALOUS OF and COMPETITIVE ABOUT their undefined relative positions in the context of their virtually unique societal prominence."
"...and that tended to make them wary in dealing with each other."

Now, I'm not saying Dave was/is talking out his ass, but that view doesn't quite jive with this letter I found on Twitter:

Now, for context, Hal Foster's Prince Valiant started in February 13, 1937, Milt Caniff's Terry and the Pirates started in October 22, 1934 but the Sunday page didn't start until December 9, 1934.

So this is a year and a half into Prince Valiant.

I sent it to Dave, no response yet.

And then I found this:

It's from 1954.

Please Hold For Dave Sim 8/2022

Hi, Everybody!

Please Hold Time!

First, the audio:

Then the video:
Part one Dave remembers Jeff, and answers Birdsong's question about this:


So you WRONG Margaret!

WRONG!


Part 2: MJ Sewall asks:
Hey Manly Matt,

A question for Dave, for PHFDS:

In all my reading you almost always call yourself a cartoonist.

Why do you call yourself a cartoonist and not an artist?

Thanks!
M J (Mike) Sewall
Part the third:
Michael R. asks:
Hi Matt!

I hope you're enjoying your summer. (Side Note --- I "Paid it Forward" to Ben Hobbs on Cerebus In Hell?: Hardcovers 11 & 12 for Series 6 Trading Cards to a deserving Cerebus fan of Ben's choice. I hope this reduces my sentence with you. LOL! Thank you again, Matt!!!!)

My question for Dave.

Hi Dave!

I LOVED all the "Matisse and Snow" original art cards. I keep looking at update #20 that Birdsong had on Cerebus No 4 6-7/78 & POT8.2 with all the cards that you created. Any chance reproducing all of them and put them in a set for the next big Kickstarter?

All the best, Dave
Michael R.
And OH BOY does Dave answer:
When Dagon sees this and lets me know what he's a'gonna do, I'll let you all know.

And if you want my cover, DEMAND IT!

And if you have thoughts, sound off in the comments.

And we end with part four:
Christon wants his cover:

As Dave said, $1000(USD) gets you a painting like that. Less gets you less. More gets you more.

Happy shopping!

And I drew this while we talked and coloured it while I made the videos:

Sketches from Melmoth

MARGARET LISS:

A few years ago I scanned all of Dave Sim's notebooks. He had filled 36 notebooks during the years he created the monthly Cerebus series, covering issues #20 to 300, plus the other side items -- like the Epic stories, posters and prints, convention speeches etc. A total of 3,281 notebook pages detailing his creative process. I never really got the time to study the notebooks when I had them. Just did a quick look, scanned them in and sent them back to Dave as soon as possible. So this regular column is a chance for me to look through those scans and highlight some of the more interesting pages.

We last saw Dave’s 18th notebook used in the production of Cerebus back in December of 2021 in Cerebus #141 Cover Sketch. The notebook had 64 out of 80 pages scanned and covers Cerebus #136 through 141.  If you check the last entry on this notebook, I made an error by saying 47 pages, but that was for notebook #19. Notebook #18 had 8 blank pages (26, 28, 66, 67/68, 69/70, 71), and page 73 / 74 was ripped out, but only a small corner is still in the notebook (or was when I scanned it). I also made a note that the edges of the pages appeared blue.

Looking at page 43, we some sketches of some of the characters who appear in Melmoth and in the in-between issue of #138.

Notebook #18, page 43

The two top sketches are of the maids who appear in Cerebus #138. And the other sketch is entitled Sebastien Melmoth. The name comes directly from Oscar Wilde, who took the name when he was in exile. It is a combination of Saint Sebastian the main character from Melmoth the Wanderer.

You can see the sketches of the next page coming through on this page.

Notebook #18, page 44

On page 44 are sketches of normalroach and Robbie Ross. We also get a quote from Oscar Wilde:

“Horrible as are the dead when they rise from their tombs; the living who come out from their tombs are more horrible still.” 

From what I can find from an internet search is that the quote comes from a letter from Oscar to Robbie Ross dated November 1896.

CIH? Trading Cards Series 6 Preview and SOCIH? V13 and V14 news!

Benjamin Hobbs:

This week I faxed Dave the CIH? Series 6 cards, available now on the current Kickstarter campaign:

 

He sent back minimal notes.  I had an apostrophe where one wasn't needed on The Watchvark card, and was missing an apostrophe on Cerebus The Duck. His fax machine also obscured the "I" in "distributed".  

Text REDACTED to preserve the FUN of receiving the card.

However the interesting part of these faxes were his notes for V13 and V14 of SOCIH?

It looks like V13 will be 8 collected issues and Volumes 14 forward will collect a full years worth of books. No word yet on price point or release date. 

I sent this mock up of the wrap around figures on the original V13 cover. (The new one will be wider.) I'm still waiting to hear from Dave if this is what he was thinking for the characters complaining cover. 

Next Week: V13 and V14 update?
