Glamourpuss #24
by Dave Sim
Aardvark-Vanaheim
$3.00
Things were getting pretty heated last issue with charges of homophobia, racism, and Islamophobia being thrown around in the Zootanapuss and Bunny vs. High Fashion Models smackdown leading to this 'Sudden Death' issue. Who 'buys the farm' as glamourpuss comes to the end of its fourth year? glamourpuss? Zootanapuss? Bunny? Plan Nine from Mogadishu? Junkie Haute Couture? Find out on page 10! Also, in the 'History of Photorealism' section, Stan Drake and Alex Raymond tool around Westport, Connecticut and environs in Drake's ill-fated 1956 Corvette.

Cerebus Archive #18
by Dave Sim
Aardvark-Vanaheim
$4.00
Dave Sim takes a closer look at his work on The Beavers in Quack #4, using preliminary sketches and correspondence with Quack editor and publisher, Mike Friedrich. How did Sgt. Duck of the Mounties and Duck Trek begin to lead him, even subconsciously, in the direction of Cerebus (then less than a year away)? Also, in the "TMI" section, Sim finds himself necking with his then 18-year-old future sister-in-law when Deni is away on vacation with her parents. A good example of how his (up 'til then) simple life was getting way more complicated.
