Dave Sim Does Cerebus/Star Wars In November's "Vark Wars"

Dave Sim continues his mashing up of the memory and legacy of what Cerebus once was, with whatever pop culture references he can vaguely recall, and use to try and goose sales for a series of issue one-shots that might, just might, sell slightly more copies than if it was still called Cerebus In Hell. And just as Marvel Comics is cancelling their Star Wars comic with #75 in November, Dave Sim is doing his own.

VARK WARS ONE SHOT
(W) Dave Sim (A) Dave Sim, Gustave Dore (CA) David Birdsong
Batvark decides to remake Star Wars as a "Post-Modern Deconstructionist Production"! Dante as Producer! Talking Cerebus into starring as "Luke"! Satan as Princess Leia! Making light sabres out of fluorescent bulbs filled with gasoline! Who will be "Han Solo"? Jingles? Cerebus? Batvark? (Still casting on page 12, this is so not looking good.) Francis as Obi-Wan? (Page 20 and Francis is "out" as Obi-Wan). Beatrice as the princess leia hologram ("Help me, Dan-te Alighieri, you're my only hope.") She looks like her! She sounds like her! Let's make her the trailer and "round-file" the rest of this! Don't miss the Earth-One Ending! Don't miss the Earth-Two Ending!
