Kickwatcher: CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER ONE

201405080244.jpg

If you were a reader of Cerebus, Dave Sim’s highly eccentric and yet amazing 300 issue comic, you that one thing Sim was good at was long, long text pages. (Sometimes too long.)

I think. It seems that the first attempts at doing this did not go so well, at least as far as I can gather. And he now has a big printing bill to pay off. To help do so he’s launched a Kickstarter for CEREBUS ARCHIVE NUMBER ONE by Dave Sim which will be an Artist’s Edition type portfolio of 10 Cerebus pages with commentary and…stuff.

And now, as he discusses in a post at A MOMENT OF CEREBUS, he’s found a new way to make money: selling artwork.

Can we all agree IDW editor Scott Dunbier has the magic touch? Not only was he long the Alan Moore Whisperer, but now he’s become the Dave Sim whisperer. Despite his antipathy towards publishers with publicists and contracts, Dave Sim has signed up with IDW to publish a color collection of Cerebus covers. These covers, […]
