What Explosion! What Necross!

"Explosive Cerebus" sequence rough puttogether of test renders

So...hey howabout a pre-Cerebus spin-off staring Necross and the villagers below headed by the High Priest and his sidekick Despuess from issue 5? Really there are so many colorful characters in the Cerebus series - any one of them worthy of their own title in an expansive Cerebusverse. Anyway, just an idea. Pardon the rough sketch below:)


New comic story from Grant Morrison and Gerhard (and edited by Rantz Hoseley!) coming soon

What Skull cloud! What Jaka!

"SKULL Clouds as Cerebus rides away" clouds created and rendered by Rob Ellis


Dave's The Origins of Jaka (and Rick): Vanessa Redgrave (and Richard Harris). Plus: 9 days left of the comic-restoration-kickstarter!

as an aside here's me (in the blue T-shirt) with my childhood friend Benji Redgrave (Vanessa's nephew - son of her almost as famous sister actress Lynn Redgrave). Read all about it in my mom's book.  Also, while we're at it: in the photoalbum right across is the nephew of Pattie Boyd (featured in last Friday's episode). My mom was also friend's with Pattie's sister Paula. https://www.amazon.com/Stars-Lobby-My-Hollywood-Years-ebook/dp/B00WFPRQAA/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8#nav-subnav

Sean Michael Robinson:
Do you have a favorite image from Going Home? We're looking for suggestions for what image should be featured on the last page of the restored book. Something that would look good really large, and fits in thematically with the book?
