Cerebus: Magiking (1982)

Hi, Everybody!

Well, I think this is the second to last Miscellany story to post. All that's left is weird non-canonical Cerebus guest appearances that don't count for $#!*...

Ladies and Gentlemen, Magiking (click for bigger):

God willing and the creek don't rise, Dave's calling on Thursday. Get your questions in to momentofcerebus@gmail.com by tomorrow night. (And if Dave passes on this month, I'll send 'em up in 29 days...)

Speaking of Dave, I got this today:
Cerebus in Hell?:
Swords of Cerebus in Hell? volume 1
Hey, remember Gerhard's getting "Slabbed"? That happens on the 11th. So...don't ferget.
Over on the FaceItBooks, Craig Johnson shared:
For real Sim completists - completionists? - ah, whatever - Clifford Meth posted this and a few here might be interested for the Dave intro:-
Sadly, our friend, the writer/artist Bill Messner-Loebs (Flash, Wonder Woman, The Maxx) has fallen on hard times again. He and his wife, who is not in the best of health, are currently residing in a temporary residence while Bill seeks work. At age 73, that isn't as easy as it should be. While I can only hope other publishers will have work for him, I've developed a project for Bill that will take time to unfold--in the meantime, we have some books that Aardwolf published in 2005, and a handful with bookplates SIGNED by Dave Cockrum, Bill, and myself. THREE TENORS OFF KEY features an introduction by Dave Sim and an Afterword by the late, splendid Tom Spurgeon. SIGNED books just are $25 each plus $3 for postage. Please contact me directly if you'd like one.
I reached out to Mr. Meth, and he said:
I’m afraid they will have to connect with me if they want copies. And I don’t have that many left. I’m sorry but this book was published many years ago and I’m not set up as a business—Just a writer and old friend helping Bill. People can connect with me on Facebook or email me at cliffmeth@aol.com
And then added:




I also have a handful of these. They are signed by Bill, Dave Cockrum, Paty Cockrum and myself. Selling the sets for $18

Interesting how to me, and others who discovered Cerebus after the Swords volumes came out but before the phone books, the "Magicking" story was always part of the main narrative, as it appeared in Swords volume (whichever) right before the issue where Cerebus wakes up on the riverbank immediately after this "dream." For that matter, so were the "Silverspoon" strips. My only exposure to the first 19 issues is from "Swords" volumes I - IV.
That makes our experience of the early storyline quite different from that of those relative few who read those issues as they came out, and also (I think) from that larger group whose first experience of that period is the first "phone book." (I've actually never seen a copy, but I do not believe it includes either "Magicking" or the Silverspoon strips - right?)
