Dave Sim continues, as he has done for the last few years, to publish Cerebus comic books, as Cerebus In Hell. Every month getting a new title, a new #1 and a new weak joke at some aspect of the comic book industry, legacy or reputation – filtered through his own increasingly bizarre viewpoints. The one for June 2021 recalls the days when he was a big promoter of self-publishing, promoting many other titles including Terry Moore and his Strangers In Paradise series, giving us Cerebus In Paradise, parodying the cover of the first collection.
He is also reviving his old Swords Of mini-collection format for these comic books that he originally used to collect six or so issues, before he switched to the Phonebook format. Here are the solicits:
