i was really hoping to hear him start screaming about the "female void" and his other kooky bullshit.

by the way, cerebus was a good comic, just ignore the first volume when it was a conan parody and the last three or four when it was a bunch of misogynistic horse shit.

I'm reading it right now! It's amazing how suddenly it goes from a rubbishy fantasy parody drawn on the back of someone's 8th grade exercise book into a beautfully drawn, meticulously researched and cleverly written series in its own right. It happens over the course of like 2 issues.

Really? It does? I bought the first volume and was horrified by how shitty it was and stopped there. Crap.

You really need to start with HIGH SOCIETY, and read through JAKA'S STORY at the very least. it starts to decline before the end of GOING HOME, but that storyline strikes me as the logical "last one you need to read."


Harveyjames
I should clarify that the two issues I refer to are #10 and #11, I didn't mean that issue one is the only bad one and then it gets great.

I actually like the first volume. It starts out pretty rough but improves rather quickly. It's especially fun if you're interested in seeing Sim's development as an artist and writer (which is one of the best parts of reading Cerebus, at least for me.) Cerebus goes through about eight different character designs here. And a minor art mistake in issue 4 gets turned into a huge plot point later on.

Well, Dave seemed kinda polite right there. I hear he's working on a webcomic biopic for a female. Maybe he's becoming less nuts and mysoginistic.
But yes, skip the first volume of Cerebus and go directly to High Society. I remember re-reading Church and State I and II over and over as a kid.
Screwtape

Pleasantly surprised. Maybe he was well-behaved because the interviewer was so fawning. Either that, or he can only be antagonistic in writing.
Xenocide
Maybe working on a comic non-stop for 300 months drove Dave crazy, and now that he's not anymore, the crazy has subsided.

Or, equally likely, this video was cleverly edited and every time cut indicated a point where Dave was about to begin a 20 minute rant about female voids.

I only know about Cerebus because he appeared in an early-ish Spawn comic, where he takes Spawn on a "spiritual journey" through metaphorical jail cells, where all earths super heros / villans reside, locked-up, because their creators sold them out.

He assures Spawn that he's immune to this, because his creator is a great man who loves him, etc etc.
Which is all hilarious... because... Todd MacFarlane...
Aelric
that is about the funniest thing i've ever heard.

cerebus has shown up in tons of comics before, but usually only as background. like as a stuffed animal in a girls room in transmetropolitian, or as a tiny figure made from wax by delirium in sandman. sandman, by the way, the roach parodies for about three issues in cerebus to near perfection.

LOL! You're serious??!! He really wrote that bullshit??!! HAW! HAW! HAW!

Hugo Gorilla
Dave Sim sounds a lot like Norm MacDonald. And he's more of a fun-loving goof than you expect a celibate judeo-christian-muslim psuedo-monk to be.

Women. Reads. Minds. Guys.
Hugo Gorilla
And the pre-load screen is pretty rad.

Xenocide
Dave seriously seems to have mellowed out a bit since the comic ended. It just occurred to me that he used to hate computers ("typewriter-with-a-television-on-top devices") and the internet, and now here he is making Youtube vids and creating webcomics.

JamesRobertSmith
Norm MacDonald worked for years to perfect that detached, sarcastic insanity. For Sim, it comes naturally.

revdrew
Dave Sim was not nearly as old or as crazy as I pictured him. I'm a little disappointed by his normalcy.
Jeff Fries
Does anyone know the name of the facetious 50s wallpaper music that I've heard a million times before?
JamesRobertSmith
"Stan Lee" and Jack Kirby. He lies even about other creators.

Fuck that lying bastard.

Interesting that this was still when he was "with" Gerhard.
