Dave Sim Is Nostalgic For Pandemic In September's Cerebus In Hell

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 Dove, alongside Benjamin Hobbs, railing against what he sees as society's and comic books' deficiencies, with a series of Cerebus. 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. In August 2021, that returns to the free webcomics he was publishing a year ago during the pandemic, and parodying the Batman: Contagion series. While Swords Of Cerebus In Hell continues to collect previous one-shot in packs of four.
