"Happy Thanksgiving, Sneaky Dragonettes! Well, it’s Thanksgiving in Canada where we don’t like to withhold our thanks until November due to our fear of God’s reprisals! This week Ian and Dave also celebrate the upcoming release of Dave Sim’s Cerebus: High Society Digital Audio Edition on October 10 by talking about their appearance with Dave Sim as part of the Spirits of Independence tour in 1995. They have photographic evidence! They also talk about Dave Sim himself and try to sum up Cerebus; discuss being friends with people with outrageous opinions; reminisce about party crashing at the first APE show; and Dave gets his comeuppance (because karma is a bitch, dude)."

The Beat's synopsis on the Dave Sim & Fantagraphics publishing discussion.

"If you want to catch up with what's been going on in that comments thread about Dave Sim and Fantagraphics negotiating a potential working relationship, you can start here. I don't really understand much of that. Dave didn't have a problem working with the magazine on a two-part interview including giving us the rights to make a cover just a couple of years after the offending Nazi cartoon. He worked directly with me, who was that issue's managing editor (I either wrote, helped write or contributed heavily to the editing of the main article; I'm on the road, I can't look it up), and it never came up. We've spoken maybe a half-dozen times cordially since then, and it's never come up. I believe my number's on the web site somewhere if he'd like to talk about now."

"Another Brief Update From Book Expo Estarcion

The comments on the post through which the cartoonist and self-publishing maverick Dave Sim has insisted on a public negotiation of a potential publishing relationship with Fantagraphics has become more genial and more interesting in certain ways, more calcified in others. Both Kim Thompson and Dave Sim left the weekend on positive notes, and pros like Ed Brubaker and James Owen showed up to voice support for some sort of archival edition being made available."

"Of course, Cerebus is the kind of comic that defies categorization, and can't be simply pigeonholed into one specific category.  Is it a satrical take on Conan the Barbarian?  Is it a parodic take on the underlying face of politics?  Is it an analysis of religion and corruption of power?  Is it a look at the life of a single woman growing up on a mountainside?  Is it a biography of the last days of Oscar Wilde?  Is it an attack on feminism with ties to the Comic Book scene in the late 80s?  Is it a play on the author / creation mindset?  Is it a tribute to a bar?  Is it a homage to F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemmingway?  Is it an increasingly detoriating descent into madness?  Is it weird?  Cerebus is ALL of these things and more."

"I think I sort of get why Dave Sim wants these negotiations in public. Okay, no, I don't. But I can at least shift my perspective to a way of thinking where this seems like a good idea. I really don't quite get why they're taking place where everyone can jump in and participate. That part is beyond my ability to understand no matter how I squint my eyes and tilt my head. But it's fine theater of the 1998 message board variety, particularly if you like all of the actors and are familiar with past performances."

"For those who don’t know Sim’s work, he wrote, drew (with able assistant from background artist Gerhard for much of the run), lettered and published the 300 issues of Cerebus, possibly the most ambitious work in comics history, and to my mind at least the best. Ranging from Marx brothers pastiche to Biblical exegesis, via a portrayal of the death of Oscar Wilde and a parody of Sandman, Cerebus has influenced and inspired everything from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to From Hell, from Rick Veitch’s dream comics (in which Sim frequently appeared as a ‘guest character’) to Spawn (when McFarlane wanted the four best comic writers he could think of to write an issue each, he chose Frank Miller, Neil Gaiman, Sim and Alan Moore). Cerebus is one of theworks which has changed how I look at both the comics medium and the world."

"More than anything,  I want to thank him for his inspiration. If there were no Dave Sim, I can safely say Bill Cucinotta and I would have never co-founded Comico and surely wouldn’t be making comics today. Thank you, Dave, and I hope all works out well for you."
