CEREBUS NEWS

Happy Birthday, Dave Sim!! (May 17th so depending on your timezone:))
(speaking of time zones in Norway it's now May 17th and Norwegian Independence Day!!:))
I've sent a selfmade card and hopefully he'll get it in time

Al Nickerson shares his very recent Dave Sim correspondence: about, among other things, the Cerebus movie, Eisner buying him a congratulatory dinner upon finishing his magnum opus Cerebus - and so much more.
Here's some of the relevant Cerebus movie portion:

"Never having had the intention of signing off on a Giant Cerebus movie, I could afford to be more philosophical about Creator Rights. You want to do a CEREBUS something? You would be a better judge of that than I would. I can't see how I lost/would lose anything from someone else doing CEREBUS. Here's my 6000-page graphic novel. Here's what you did. If you can compete with what I did and improve on it, hey, good for you. If you fall on your face, it's your face that you fall on."

Read the full letter here
http://albert.nickerson.tripod.com/creatorsbillofrightssim26.html
or see below


Just saw Hulu's Creator Rights movie "Batman and Bill" which follows Marc T. Nobleman's heroic journey to get Bill Finger creator credit. Highly recommended.

High praise from Chester Brown: "Cerebus is a masterpiece. I don’t have to agree with an author (or be that author's friend) to enjoy his-or-her work. I’ve read all sixteen volumes at least twice through, and some of them I’ve read more than twice. There seems to be a popular view out there that the early volumes are good and the later ones are unreadable, but, to me, Cerebus becomes more and more interesting as it progresses."

"Orbital Comics" reviews: "Cerebus in hell?": "bringing us back to Cerebus’ beginnings in that it’s just straight up funny and irreverent taking pot-shots with almost childish glee....silly, but more often than not eliciting a smile and a hearty guffaw. This book should appeal to anyone with a funny bone and will hopefully serve as an interesting introduction for the uninitiated to Cerebus."

What Intercut!

CEREBUS NEWS

Another edition of the reread of the comic that came out ages ago from the Director of the Cerebus film (and again sorry and thank you for indulging me:))

Michael Hunt's NOTES FROM THE TUB
Somehow there's been no time for comics in the past 36 hours (the horror!), but tonight I delved into Oliver Simonsen's Captain Zap #2.
A-1, the little worker-bot awakes aboard the captain's spaceship only to discover Cap is having an existential crisis of his own. Apparently Cap's been doing a "Chuck Berry", just cruising around...with no particular place to go.
We don't know where A-1 was heading when he gave up the 9 to 5, but he seems put out to find himself a passenger on a road to nowhere. Cap has trouble explaining himself but though he's unsure of the value of his actions he is absolutely committed to them.
While it is an apparent fete accompli, Cap nevertheless formally invites A-1 to join him on his adventures.

Michael adds: I'm having fun with it. It's been long enough since I've read them that I'm wondering what happens next.

CEREBUS NEWS

It's not only Cerebus that get's a reread, but once in a while Captain Zap does as well:) the comic from the Director of the film - please indulge me as this is a rare occasion indeed!:)

Michael Hunt's "NOTES FROM THE TUB"
I dug Oliver Simonsen's Captain Zap out of its long-box graveyard for a reread.
When I first realized my FB friend Oliver (who I know through Cerebus fandom) was the creator of Captain Zap I was delighted. I have fond memories of the series and was determined to unearth my copies.
The first issue finds worker robot A-1 at a low point. His days and nights are all the same and he's begun to wonder if this is all there is. Eventually he reached a decision, rips out his control antenna and leaves it all behind. He's barely made his escape before he meets the titular Captain Zap and the issue ends.
Simple line drawings illustrate A-1 and his world and they're evocative of loneliness and isolation as his world is made to seem simple, small and insular. Repetitive images slow the pacing, creating a claustrophobic sense of existential dread broken on occasion by A-1's monologues.
Tune in tomorrow for more NOTES FROM THE TUB. Same ZAP time! Same ZAP channel!

which is especially an amazing honor since a bigger Cerebus fan is hard to come by. Mr Cooper has among other things contributed to this incredible scholarly in-depth book about Cerebus http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13610614-cerebus-the-barbarian-messiah
In the comments of the Darshan Facebook group where the clip was added comic book artist John Mundt: "Awesome work! Each character's, well...character really comes through! Reminds me of how much fun Cerebus was/is."
Among others...really great feedback and support so far.

Danish comic podcast highlights Cerebus https://youtu.be/XqkaqhOpRvU
Kasper Meyer gives a  loose transcription:
"Cerebus in Hell! It’s been 40 years since Dave Sim started his Cerebus series. It’s a great comic book, even with its controversies. In the light of its 40 year anniversary he’s made a 4-issue mini series, where issue 0 and 1 is already out. If you in any way liked the original run, you owe Sim to check out his latest project. They cost 36 DKK per issue."
Kasper also shares this wonderful story:
Morten Søndergaard is a really great guy. I always visit his store "Fantask" when I'm in Copenhagen, and he always have fascinating stories to tell.
I once asked if he had any Cerebus in stock, and while he dug it out, he told me that he was one of the first stores in the world to sell Cerebus, back in the seventies. As a token of gratitude, Dave sent Morten a complete collection of Cerebus when it was finished back in 2004. Morten proceeded to give the entire collection away for free to a regular customer of his store whom he knew would appreciate it more.

"Cerebus in hell?" issue #1 now in comic stores
Review from "Comics Alliance":
"...it essentially confirms my fear that we are hurtling at breakneck speed towards total global absurdity. Fortunately Dave Sim and Cerebus do absurd well. Dave is without a doubt a master of the comics form. And even with a non-working wrist, using funky collage techniques, and trapping his character in the two-up-two-down hegemony of Garfield, Sim’s skills for timing, dialogue and comedy are still on display in this series of goofy comics industry in-jokes, ruminations on eternal suffering, and Guns N’ Roses lyrics."

Jaka's Story - from the review: "The entire story is hilarious and sad in turns, and the ending is a shocker. It's a very fast read, even though it's a couple hundred pages long. It's a great book and highly recommended"
http://threestepsoverjapan.blogspot.com/2017/02/cerebus-aardvark-jakas-story.html
Melmoth - from the review: "If you're a Cerebus fan, you may be disappointed that Cerebus is still not the central character again. Still, it's a great book, the story flows fast, and the artwork is fantastic. Highly recommended."
