Dave Sim Creates 'Cerebus Woman'

It's like he just loves it when people kick off. But will anyone notice?

Dave Sim has another new #1 Cerebus for May 2019, using more cut-and-pastes of the work of Gustave Dore, a French artist, printmaker, illustrator, comics artist, caricaturist, and sculptor who worked primarily with wood engraving in the 19th century, especially notable for Sim his work on Dante's Vision of Hell.

And the new one? Cerebus Woman #1. Oh, bloody hell…

Hey, the character is canonically genderfluid. Though I am somehow not expecting the most sensitive portrayal.
