WordPress is misbehaving, and I’ve got spring fever. So no real post today.
To fill the void, check out this in-depth appreciation of Cerebus, which Mr Deppey linked to today. Go read parts 2-7 at least, which discuss the often brilliant covers by Sim and Gerhard. With all the (justified) hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing about Sim’s writing and general crackpottery, it’s easy to forget what a talented visual artist he is.
When will Sim release a collection of covers? Most of them aren’t reprinted in the other “phonebooks”, so many of Cerebus‘ readers have never seen them. Surely a collection of covers would sell better than the quixotic collections of letters and diatribes he has been printing since Cerebus finished.
In the meantime, there’s always this.
