The Top 10 Cerebus characters of all time

September 20, 2011

The comics hive mind has decided it’s time to talk about Cerebus again.  Here’s my contribution to the ongoing critical discourse, in the form of a list of the ten greatest Cerebus characters of all time. But you already knew that from the post’s title — UHOH SPOILER. Enjoy the list; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder why I’ve broken into your apartment and started rooting through your linen cupboard while hyperventilating.


Top 10 Cerebus characters of all time:

10. Alec

9. The fake Oscar

8. Missy

7. The something that fell

6. Viktor Reid

5. Ham Ernestway

4. Mary Ernestway

3. Flaming Carrot

2. That one incarnation of Astoria that briefly appeared in a flashback during Church and State (tie)

2. Yoohoo (tie)



1. Dirty Drew McGrew


But not Rick. Man, I fucking hate Rick.

The canon

March 2, 2008

In no order, the real comics canon:

  • Detective #whatever it was that Batman first appeared in
  • DC Comics Presents #87 (first appearance of Superman Prime)
  • Every Millennium crossover except for The Outsiders #28
  • That issue of X-Men where Wolverine is all like “I’m gonna bust yo ass” on the Hellfire Club
  • Fantastic Four #286 (return of Jean Grey)
  • Secret Wars #9 (no particular reason)
  • Avengers #58 (“Even an android can cry!”)
  • Kingdom Come/Marvels (first appearances of Alex Ross)

…I toyed with the idea of including some “indy” comics like Spawn or Invincible, but I thought it best to stick to the widely recognized classics. If they are still reading comics in a hundred years, these are the works of sequential fiction they will be reading.


Index verborum prohibitorum

In the interests of furthering internet discourse, I offer the following list of words that “graphic novel” bloggers should no longer be allowed to use. Surely we can all agree that our lives would be better if we never had to read or write these words again.




Art comics, or similar phrases [but “Cancer Comics” is acceptable]





Age (as in: “Golden Age”, “Silver Age”, etc.)



Barnes and/or Noble

Editorially dictated

Joe Quesada


Graphic novel
