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. 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. An in October that means re-running more of his pandemic conspiracy strips, with his Neal Adams Superman Vs Mohammad Ali cover parody. Dave Sim began Cerebus with Moon Roach parodying Neal Adams, he has now gone back to the bard.
