Review of Cerebus #23 by Tucker Stone An excellent issue of Cerebus that consists almost front to back of the character seated in a bed, listening to the goings on around him. Opening with a standard sex comedy set-up–a wounded Cerebus is taken in by a bunch of buxom young women being looked after and lorded over by a crotchety old crone, and the ladies almost immediately begin to persuade our hero to get his good leg thumping–Sim quickly twists it into something way more interesting by forcing a larger story to wedge itself into the gag. It’s even more intriguing when one considers the timing–a higher price is on this issue, the beginning of the longer, more serious business is upon the comic, and all of that is here, in the microcosm of one issue. It’s also a brilliant looking thing, a comic that takes place in dark rooms, between the light that escapes the blinds, amongst the stoic, unbending faces of the old woman and Cerebus himself. After indicating that

"I also wanted to talk about a book I read, called Cerebus: High Society, by Dave Sim."

"In November, Diamond Digital, the digital comics program of Diamond Comic Distributors, began releasing all 25 chapters of Cerebus: High Society, the second volume of Dave Sim’s (and artist Gerhard’s) groundbreaking self-published graphic novel series, on a weekly basis that will continue through March 2013. This is the latest of several publishing moves around Sim and the Cerebus series and includes a successful Kickstarter campaign; a deal with IDW to release a new print edition of High Society, as well as an offer from Fantagraphics Books to bring the series back into print."

"This was a long time coming. The build up for the digital versions of Cerebus has been a hot topic for some time now, and I have finally absorbed enough to decide. This is, for those not in the know, issues 26 through 50 of Dave Sim’s massive 300 issue series that ran for 26 years ending in 2004. While there was more than a little attention on the creator of the book in the later years, the series itself continued to become a forum to watch a master of the medium at work, and that is the important thing here. When the controversy over Sim himself finally fades into the background, the work will remain."

"Finally, after a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign (followed by over 100 increasingly confusing Kickstarter updates), the rollout of the digital version of Dave Sim’s classic graphic novel Cerebus Volume 2: High Society has finally begun. The first issue is available for free here, with additional issues coming weekly for 99 cents each. The digital files are available in multiple e-reader-friendly formats (including PDF, CBZ, and ePUB), and also available as a Quicktime movie, featuring close-ups of the panels and pages that the camera scans while Sim reads the text himself, doing all the voices. The result is halfway between an audiobook and a motion comic, with sound effects and music enhancing Sim’s spirited reading. The downside to the audio/video version is that by the time of High Society—which began in issue #26, a little over four years after Cerebus debuted—Sim’s pages had become so graphically complex that they don’t lend themselves easily to being read aloud..."

"Now, I’ll be the first to say it: as baffling as Sim’s insistence on self-destructing his cartooning career was, so was Fantagraphics’ offer to publish hardcover editions of the “phonebooks.” Put simply, there is way way way too much bad blood between Sim and Gary Groth & Kim Thompson for that to ever be a viable reality. But as baffling as that whole affair was, the shock announcements of first a Cerebus covers book(s), then the High Society Digital Audio Edition being released in some format, by IDW set the cat among the pigeons. [To wit: this article began life as a very, VERY different piece prior to the IDW announcements.]"
