Dave Sim Shows Off The Future Of Cerebus In January 2022

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. But in January 2022, that means previewing all the Cerebus In Hell one-shots happening through the rest of 2022. Like a flashback episode of a sitcom, but flashing forward instead. Promising parodies of Alf, Death In The Family, Emily Strange, Harvey Kurtzmann, and Keanu Reeves' BRZRKR… here are the Aardvark Vanaheim January 2022 solicitations.

Minds, the tenth volume of the 6,000 page Cerebus epic, finds the titular misanthropic aardvark hurtling through space alongside Cirin, his opponent and fellow aardvark, both heading for a direct collision with their small-m maker – "Dave" – a mysterious being who talks with them about themselves and their world, and who just might resemble Cerebus writer/cartoonist Dave Sim. Minds is the groundbreaking conclusion to the first two-thirds of the Cerebus epic, presented here for the first time in remastered form.
