Anxiety Society (Dave's weekly update #519)

Hi, Everybody!

It occurs to me that not everybody checks AMOC daily (sometimes hourly)...

So, I'm going to start a new format for the Friday posts (since I believe people check these more often). Like it says on the Logo:

It's Friday, so that means:
Dave's Weekly Update:

You can NOT get a copy from Lee's Bandcamp. Lee how can they get a copy?
A Moment of Cerebus runs Saturday through Friday. If you DON'T check AMOC daily

The Week in AMOC:
  • Saturday: I talked about the ending of Form & Void
  • Sunday: I celebrated twenty years since Gerhard finished his work on the Cerebus monthly book
  • Monday: Christmas! (No Monday Report because it WAS Christmas.)
  • Tuesday: Jen's got personal issues, so a quick update on The Strange Death of Alex Raymond Go Fund Me. $200 until the next page is unlocked. And Dave's finished drawing page 578. (Maybe even 579. THAT I haven't heard yet.)
  • Wednesday: Hobbs has a personal issue, but he let everybody know that MarvelManVark is in stores

This is the LAST monthly Cerebus in Hell? book. Due to Hobbs' issue, and David Birdsong having a person issue (yeah, it seems like we ALL have issues these days...) Cerebus in Hell? is changing to a "When-an-issue-is-done-it's-going-on-Kickstarter-and-we'll-throw-it-at-Diamond-when-we-get-a-chance" format.

Speaking of which, Akimbo is getting Kickstartered in January (the 17th, I believe). You can read the issue here, if you wanna see if it's your cup o' tea.

As far as Aardvark-Vanaheim and Diamond goes, you can order a copy of the New AV Book:

Just so you can't say I never told you.
  • Thursday: After Dave's answer in the last Please Hold For Dave Sim, Margaret continues looking at Notebook #1 (AKA Albatross One). Speaking of Thursdays and Please Hold For Dave Sim, Dave and I are going to be doing the FIRST Please Hold for Dave Sim of 2024 on Thursday of next week. If you want in, please get your questions in to by Wednesday when I send the fax.
  • Friday: that's this post. You're reading the Friday post right now. This is like that bit in Spaceballs.
Okay, so that was the past week in AMOC. You're welcome.

Manly, I did some detective work and it looks like the book Lee has co-created is set to be released in February 2024. Link:

Lee, excuse me if I am jumping the gun here.

Thanks again to Dave for those very kind words about my artwork and for plugging the book - much appreciated. Brian West is correct - the book should be available in February when the Kickstarter campaign is launched. The author of the book is in charge of that side of things and the Kickstarter was supposed to run in September 2023, which is why I worked my ass off to get the 82 pages completed between January and June this year (6 months, not two years as Dave assumes) and why I sent Dave a mock up copy. I'm hoping the Kickstarter does actually get launched in February 2024 and is successful so I can actually get paid for the work I put into the book. We'll see...

The amount of work that's been put into all the CIH? issues these past few years boggles my mind -- certainly a labor of love.

So maybe a bit of a pause and a bit of a rest is due!

And not to be belittling, but if there's any good thing to say about personal issues it's that at least they only occur....periodically.
