...The only published Dave Sim Dreams story is "The Zelda Cafe" in Roarin' Rick's Rare Bit Fiends #1... oddly enough a dream that I had before I knew anything about F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda. Impossible but True! I have about 25 mint copies that I've been trying to figure out how to get a) Rick to sign in the presence of a CGC rep and b) get slabbed by CGC. A couple of obvious problems: I'd be willing to bet the Veitchmonster [Rick Veitch] hates the very idea of CGC slabbing and I'd be willing to bet the nearest CGC rep is probably no closer than Boston. Although I might be wrong. On both counts...

Last night I had the strangest dream where I was reading an illustrated Visions Of Johanna by Dave (like the old Grateful Dead Comix by Tim Truman) and it was an alt.lyrics version so when I woke up I had to go thru all my bootleg records to find it.
