Steven: "My son, Kris, contributed to this film. I’m glad to see it come to life!" Kris was incredibly talented, skillful and passionate. He passed away from a rare form of liver cancer over a year ago.

Dave Sim's mock up for beginning of updated Cerebus film

We had hoped to have more Cerebus handrawn animation but alas it is a much smaller pool to draw from (no pun intended) but rejoice because Eddie Khanna has come up with a Russian Novel length traditional 2D animation from a drawing by Dave Sim - and what could be more perfect as Cerebus comics as a whole is often compared to a Russian Novel.

Carson Grubaugh: progress on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Cerebus variant cover for the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Issue #8 re-release" that will be coming from Waverly Press this summer.
It is an honor to be involved, as the Turtles are the reason I am an artist. The loop has closed!

Cerebus issue #230 called a perfect story by Charles

Charles: "One of my favorite pages"

Indie comic creator Delwyn Klassen: Cerebus had a few Mind Game issues with the fourth one hiding the third one in twenty mixed up half-page pieces. I didn’t have a photo copier or a second copy to sacrifice, so I doodled all the pages and glued the puzzle into the back of a sketchbook. Surprise! Cerebus is the new pope!

Form & Void: COMING BACK to Print! (And a Cerebus in Hell? preview...)

Hi, Everybody!

Ya know, sometimes this AMOC gig is pretty sweet...

Other times, it's a colossal hemorrhoid on my ass that just won't quit...

Anyway, one of the sweet parts is when I get stuff emailed to me on Dave's behalf. 

Like this thing:

What is it?

I have NO idea!

Something to do with Oliver's Cerebus movie? (The Absurd, Surreal, Metaphysical, and Fractured Destiny of Cerebus the Aardvark, which is currently free with commercial interruptions on streaming channels "Plex", Comcast's "Xumo", or watch commercial free at "Vimeo On Demand" for $0.99 (to download for $1.99) or on Tubi.)

Again, NO clue...
________________________________
Then there are the faxes I get from Dave, like this one which includes an update on The Strange Death of Alex Raymond:

Speaking of The Strange Death of Alex Raymond, you can get a digital copy of from Living the Line.

And if you want Digital PDFs of glamourpuss, email me at: momentofcerebus@gmail.com and I'll take care of ya...

And don't forget Carson's SDOAR Contests:
____________________________________
Other times, Dave faxes things that are gonna "blow up real good", and knowing that, I run them anyway...

And is nearing the F.O.C. Sword of Cerebus in Hell? Volume 12 

And they're re-soliciting Swords of Cerebus in Hell? volume 1

Git 'em while they're HOT!!!

Anyway, Dave continues:

Ya'll catch all that?

Form & Void BACK IN PRINT!
$70 American.

Completely remastered from the original art.
Why pay twice as much on eBay for a copy of inferior quality?
“For sale: Baby shoes. Low mileage...”

And yet another reason to listen to the Please Hold for Dave Sim, a cheaper Swordfish option!


I have a solicitation written. I have to send it to the other guys, but if you're a crazy Cerebus fan and wanna give it a go...
___________________________________
Cerebus in Hell?:
Cerebus The Emily is reaching Final Order Cut-off, because there is a new one:

I actually suggested this one.

I can't find my original pitch.

But since nobody reads these things (supposedly), here's Dave's mock-ups of the first six pages (click for bigger):





Um... okay, five and a half pages... if you're interested, the rest is a coming...
