Cerebus The Tumblr

Tumbling the art of "Cerebus the Aardvark," Dave Sim, and Gerhard. 'Cerebus' was the longest running self-published comic book ever. It was published monthly (more or less) from December 1979 until March 2004.

I was just re-reading parts my old copy of the original “Cerebus Guide to Self-Publishing,” and remembering how much of an impact Dave Sim’s 1993 Pro/Con Speech made on me. I think it holds true for the most part even today. It was originally published in Issue 170, one of the first I picked up. It was also the issue with:"Mitsee’s Gone!! Wherdudshe *hic* Wherdudshe *hic* Wherdudshe""She’s on yer head."
Amazing starting point!

Don’t forget! It’s good low-pressure comics fun. I usually pre-make some panels so I don’t have to think too hard. Mine from 2013 are up here as well as on the forum.
Like John Campbell said, you don’t have to draw a lot to enjoy making these. It’s a fun journaling exercise, and even really simple doodled figures can be a nice little snapshot of your day.
(On a separate note, I set physical goods & digital download stores up over the weekend! Official announcement later, but open to tumblrites now :) )

"Nurse’s ‘rise and shine’ carried with it the undertone of malicious resignation peculiar to mothers whom Terim (in her infinite mercies) has seen fit not to bless with live births of their own.

Riiise.

And shine.

Riiise.

And shine.”

"Listen. Kid. Cerebus is in love with your wife."
The first time I can remember hearing about Cerebus was wondering about this cool Jaka’s Story era t-shirt. It was still a few months later until I borrowed all the individual issues of JS, reading the entire storyline in one night. Quite an experience. But, it always comes back to this t-shirt for me. Sorry for the bad quality - I don’t own one, and couldn’t find a better jpeg.

Another World without Cerebus piece, “Collateral Damage" by the amazing Gerhard. This one a view from the empty hotel room back in Iest, presumably while Cerebus is on his way to the Moon.

The cover to Cerebus 112/113, one of my favorite single issues. It’s almost entirely “silent” as Cerebus is suddenly returned to a deserted and destroyed Upper City. The issue is not included in the trade paperback of Church and State, vol. II, but was reprinted in Cerebus #0 in 1994(ish).

Why not? Here’s another take on Cerebus (and Sim’s favorite alternate version, in the story “Cerebus Dreams”) by the legendary Barry Windsor-Smith, for the cover Swords of Cerebus #1.
