Cerebus by RichBernatovech Cerebus by RichBernatovech
In my opinion one of the greatest self-published comic series has to be Cerebus. Written and drawn by Dave Sim, Cerebus began in the late 70s and finally saw it's final issue published in 2004. The series ran for 300 issues and was 6,000 pages long. There are so many stories about Dave Sim and his journey self-publishing and working on Cerebus that I can't even begin to list them all here. Some are good, some are bad, depending on who's telling the story. He's truly worth researching and reading more about. Dave was a pioneer in the industry and inspired many other creators (Jeff Smith, Terry Moore and Martin Wagner) and still continues to inspire new creators today. He's also a BIG supporter of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and even donated his entire paycheck for writing Spawn #10 (which featured Cerebus) to them. On top of all this, Cerebus is truly a GREAT book to read. It's extremely deep and thought-provoking and I still go back from time to time to re-read issues.

Great pic! So good to see him included in the lineup. I've only read a small handful of Dave Sim's work but it BLOWS my mind, wow! A little too good. Marvel and DC can't touch his craftsman ship, skill and writing. His lettering is also super sick, amazing that is! :)

This was one of those books that I've kept telling myself to read and I haven't. THE SHAME! THE SHAME!

I must do so, soon!

Beautiful illustration, btw!

Thanks!
Yeah, you should give it a try. It's not the book for everyone and might seem a little slow at times, but I really, really enjoyed it.

I was worried this one was a little boring with all the white.
