Philip R. Frey: Another fun one today by Carson Grubaugh from You Don't Know Jack!. This is another two-sided piece. It features Jack Vandyke's "Aunt Sadie" and H.P. Lovecraft on the front. It was for these images that I bought the piece.
I was surprised and thrilled to find another Alex Raymond Rip Kirby recreation on the back!

Philip R. Frey: Here's the last of the Rip Kirby recreations from Carson. It's my favorite of the ones I actually ordered (though I think, in the end, I'm more fond of the one on the back of "Aunt Sadie").

Philip R. Frey: Here's it is. This is the big one!
The problem with my order that caused the delay (for which I got those extra Carson pieces) was that the "signed and numbered" label for Hermitage Awesomes was damaged and Carson had to wait for a replacement.
As you can see, when it arrived, it included an original "Rip Cerebus" sketch by Dave. Very exciting, as I have never felt I could afford one of the sketch add-ons.
I don't even mind that he misspelled my name!

Larry Wooten: The YDKJ Kickstarter had to send a copy of Six Macro Cons and Carson sent a great bonus. Thank you Carson!

Kyle Pinion: Did the Red/Blue Bookplate High Societies ever come out? I pre-ordered one at an LCS through Diamond, but it never got fulfilled for whatever reason. Just thought I'd check with the folks who'd know.
Menachem Luchins in the comments: Yup, two weeks ago.

David Hartman: Gah! I am he who who has risen from the grave, only to find that my genitals really ARE a laughing matter! gilgameshtionechuanesque!

John Glismann:
Was Cerebus ever mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine?
Sometime in the late ‘80s or early ‘90s there was an article in Rolling Stone about cool and interesting comics. It was sort of one of those “Comics are not just for kids anymore” articles. I THINK I remember Cerebus being mentioned, but I’m not sure. Alan Moore’s Big Numbers and Art Spiegelman’s Maus were definitely mentioned in the article. Miller and Varley’s painting of a giant Dark Knight standing over Gotham City was in the front of the issue (but not the cover). I bought it at the time but don’t have it anymore, so I can’t check. Anyone still have this or remember if Cerebus was in it?
Margaret Liss in the comments: Yes, Rolling Stone #578 that came out on 17 May 1990 in an article called "Hot Comics".
Me: And on Dave's bday no less:)

I add: There's also this from 2014
to see thew whole list
As an aside, here's Mick and Keith's reactions: "Looking at the comic books Jagger asked "Does he make money doing this?" I laughed. Keith took a very dim view of his portrayal, but once explained Cerebus a bit he took a more charitable view."


Thanks Oliver!

Spawn #10 Kickstarter, has ended. Because much like the Remastered Cerebus #1, AND You Don't Know Jack, there's a second chance IndieGoGo. (But hurry, as there's only so much time before this one goes away...)

End of the month, the 25th, pick up Spider-Whore. I'm not going to, because my 15 "contributor" copies showed up in the mail. (I had nothing to do with this issue, but my name is on the cover.) I got issues #175-189 out of 2414. I'm signing and sending Dave five issues of his pick of numbers, but then I'ma offer the rest to the fine folks willing to give me money, kinda like I am with: copies of Vark Wars: Walt's Empire Strikes Back (Signed by Dave, Signed by Dave and me, Signed by me after I scribble out Dave's name, Pretty much available Signed only...)

As you all know, Wilf Jenkins was the Aardvark/Vanaheim lawyer for years, and during that time he was on the comp list. Wilf saved all his copies. Dave and Wilf have signed them, and there's a certificate of authenticity. The books will be available from Looking For Heroes, for $10 (CAD) plus $4 dollars shipping to Canada and $5 dollars shipping to the USA. All the money goes to the Food Bank of the Waterloo Region.
