The Look Of The Cerebus Action Figure… Who Wants One?

So George Peter Gatsis has been creating a model for a Cerebus action figure for quite some time now. One of the folks who has been working with Dave Sim on the Cerebus archive, he clearly feels that an extra dimension is in order… As you can see, the figure is fully articulated. And quite […]

Dave Sim's Drawings For Antony Buonomo's Cerebus Movie Titles

He's still not approving it. And still probably not going to approve it.

And the titles will be created by Antony Buonomo, […]

Dave Sim Could Create And Publish James Bond Comics If He Wanted

On January the 1st, the character of James Bond entered public domain in Canada. Which mean, if anyone so wishes, they could create James Bond comic books, legally, ahead of Dynamite's licensed James Bond comic books later this year. You wouldn't be able to distribute them for sale overseas, to the US or the UK […]

Why Aren't More People Talking About Dave Sim?

When Dave Sim Lettered My Name 17 Times

That's what I came home to after New York Comic Con. Lots of post, but at the bottom a thick flat card package. What could it be? It could be Cerebus Archive Volume One. The first ten pages of original art in Dave Sim's personal collection, recreated in card form as close to the original […]

Why Dave Sim Is Wrong About His Next Comic Book

Dave Sim has been releasing his latest update, as he struggles with internet access. In which he tells us the funeral home that he has arranged his death rites at, is closing, so it will be moved to Westmount Memorial Celebration Centre. It rather sets the tone… Worth noting (perhaps): I've specified that my remains […]

Dave Sim's Hundred Year Plan Begins At Midnight Tonight

When Dave Sim originally published the Cerebus phonebooks, collections stuffed with twenty or more issues of the black and white comic, he did so outside of Diamond Comic Distributors, which caused a massive stink. Google it. But it also gave him the opportunity to sell signed and numbered editions, and for people to keep the […]
