Dave Sim Guarantees Cerebus' New Black Costume Is Not A Symbiote

Dave Sim has, in recent years, taken his highly regarded 300-issue Cerebus 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 Doré, alongside Benjamin Hobbs, railing against what he sees as society's and comic books' deficiencies, with a series of Cerebus. And each one-shot tries to parody some aspect of comics and comics history in its cover and name, hoping to get some confused sales along the way. In February 2022, that means some kind of mashing between Detective Comics #27 which first featured Batman and Amazing Fantasy #15 that first featured Spider-Man… as well as the Venom symbiote costume he picked up in the eighties. So here are the Aardvark Vanaheim February 2022 solicitations. Oh look, he even uses the "R-word" on the cover. How edgy.
