Cerebus Parodies Batman: A Death In The Family For April 2022

Dave Sim has, in recent years, taken his highly regarded 300-issue graphic novel and transformed it into the ridiculed-then-ignored Cerebus In Hell. A series of one-shot cut-and-paste strips using his own work and that of Gustave Dove, alongside Benjamin Hobbs, railing against what he sees as society's and comic books' deficiencies, with a series of Cerebus In Hell parodies. And each one-shot trying to parody some aspect of comics and comics history in its cover and name, hoping to get some confused sales along the way. But in March 2022, it's time for Batman: A Death In the Family to get the Cerebus In Hell treatment as Batvark: A Poet In The Family.
