As mentioned I'm doing less coordinating these days and focusing completely on the "animatic" (basically a storyboard set to the voices) -the good news is: this should not take as long as when i did the script:)
In fact the "Necross part" (Cerebus issue # 13) of the animatic is pretty much done and we will showcase it shortly for feedback and improvements. Just waiting to get some files so it'll look even nicer:) Portions of the animatic are stick figures while others are, as seen above, stills (note: the above one is one you might not see in the movie....Cerebus being sad just doesn't happen too often:)), while others are full animation.
Speaking of full animation: there are 2 new Cerebus animations premiering this Friday on Cerebus TV
CEREBUS TV EPISODE 22 - air date April 23
"Just Like Starting Over!"
Dave Sim tells the history of CEREBUS No.1 page 1 which started as a sample for Mike Friedrich's OUACK...and then decides to "reimagine" the page 33 years later showing all of his well-thumbed Barry Windsor-Smith "Red Nails" reference. How far can he get in recreating the 6,000 page CEREBUS storyline from the beginning? The journey of 6,000 pages begins with but a single step...tune in after the episode to see how much that first step auctions for!
Also: the return of "Viewer Mail" as Sgt. Brian Lee Moore checks in from Baghdad and Dave Sim discusses helping him with his indy film, "Demon Joe".
BONUS! John M. Scrudder interviews mega hot artist Tommy Lee Edwards!

Instead of "What Comics Entertainment" were now calling ourselves "Wot Comics":)
Dave Sim, Cerebus Creator, faxed over his great drawings of Alan Moore, writer of "Watchmen", to accompany the Max Southall press release for this Friday's Cerebus TV episode (10PM Eastern):
"'All and Moore!' What's Dave Sim's favorite Alan Moore-related artifact in the Cerebus Archive? The answer - will surprise you! Also the auction of the ORIGINAL color cover to the new edition CEREBUS GUIDE TO SELF-PUBLISHING (see the latest issue of PREVIEWS), Christos Gage on current projects and Dave Sim's influence. All this - and Moore -- er -- More in Store!"
Sim also asked if we had any visiuals from when we did all the voice-recording. Honestly I didn't think of video recording or picture taking so much at the time...but yet we should have a little something put together for a future episode:)
Also, despite being busy with the animatic (mentioned in the previous blog entry) this Friday will see the total of 4 new animated bumpers!
And while I'm at it: let's take a look at the remarkable beginnings of the 3d model "Lord Julius" by the incredibly talented Trevor Sieben. Wow! You just know it's going to look great.
Oh, and don't forget to check out the new webcomics (each and every Wednesday!)
Captain Zap and Reality Stripped. More new "Young Cerebus" coming soonish.

We are now working on an animatic of the entire film. An animatic is basically a storyboard set to the voice recordings. We'll, of course, first off preview the Necross scenes, which work as a short film in their own right.
It's for me particularly time consuming and as such my twittering, facebooking, blogging etc fall to the wayside for a bit.
Also, April 23 is the 9th Annual Cerebus Fan Gathering.
I just received my latest copy in the mail of the Cerebus Newsletter, which truly is great.
Over at the Cerebus.TV website a new Cerebus Store has opened. And to kick things off there you can now get original suggest-your-own Cerebus head sketches.
And speaking of Cerebus TV: Robin Barnard is having an incredibly generous promotion.
