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."
