Dave Sim Does Cerebus/Swamp Thing – and Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon – in Vark Thing #1

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 in December, he is returning to the mill of Len Wein, Bernie Wrightson, Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and Rick Veitch with a Swamp Thing take – as well as Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon. Sim is still working on a comic about Raymonds' death, with fingers pointing at potential perpetrators.

No homophobia or transphobia in this month's solicitations from Aardvark-Vanaheim, just plain old old-fashioned women-are-garbage…
