Dave Sim’s injured wrist means he may not be able to draw again, so he’s enlisted two cartoonists to help him with The Strange Death of Alex Raymond
Last week we told you about Cerebus in Hell #0, a new “fumetti” style comic strip by Dave Sim and Sandeep Atwal that uses Gustave Dore’s art and Sim’s captions to reveal the earthpig’s descent into the afterlife in a darkly humorous fashion. There will be a one shot, available in October, daily Cerebus in […]
Cerebus, the controversial comics masterpiece by Dave Sim, is returning in a one shot that, perhaps inspired by Mike Mignola’s latest Hellboy saga, shows us how the earth pig will be doing in Hell. The issue goes on sale in September and if successful will be followed by a four issue mini-series. Cerebus died in […]
While poking around on the A Moment of Cerebus site following my previous post on Glamourpuss, I noticed that the remastered editions of Church & State, perhaps the masterpiece of Cerebus’s 300 issue run, seems to be back in print in a superior remastered edition. I guess that was kickstartered, but it’s not always easy […]
In his latest weekly video, Cerebus creator Dave Sim reveals that an anonymous donor has agreed to leave a bequest of $500,000 to The Cerebus Trust Fund. So it turns out someone really likes Cerebus! And Sim need no longer worry about money for getting his comic The Strange Death Of Alex Raymond published, and […]
As detailed in the Moment of Cerebus blog, Dave Sim, 58, checked himself into the hospital after suffering severe abdominal pains, which was a good thing because he had an intestinal blockage* and had to undergo surgery
Okay not maybe the most chipper reading, but you’ll be thankful for you life after you read it> Dave Sim’s Judenhass (literally “Jew hate”) a harrowing, sensitive look at anti-Semitism and its horrific result in the Holocaust is now being offered for free at the website and via the Sequential app for iPad. Sim may […]
If you were a reader of Cerebus, Dave Sim’s highly eccentric and yet amazing 300 issue comic, you that one thing Sim was good at was long, long text pages. (Sometimes too long.) It seems that he’s now transferred his voluble nature to the Moment of Cerebus blog, despite his avoidance of the internet, where he goes on (and on) at length about the digital archiving process of Cerebus. I think. It seems that the first attempts at doing this did not go so well, at least as far as I can gather. And he now has a big printing bill to pay off. To help do so he’s launched a Kickstarter for CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER ONE by Dave Sim which will be an Artist’s Edition type portfolio of 10 Cerebus pages with commentary and…stuff.
When last we left Cerebus creator Dave Sim, he was contemplating a grim existence as his declining productivity and shrinking market place left him few recourses to make a living. Fortunately for all, he was saved from a life of dining on Fancy Feast by a Kickstarter campaign, the arrival of cover work from IDW and an agreement to publish a print version of the digital High Society, whatever that is. And now, as he discusses in a post at A MOMENT OF CEREBUS, he’s found a new way to make money: selling artwork.
When IDW recently announced their massive sales numbers for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, one of our commenters wondered if there would be a “Mars Attacks My Little Pony”. Guess what?
