(from Top 5 Enigmatic Comic Creators by Josh Flanagan, 5 July 2011)
No. 3: Dave Sim
No one did what Dave Sim did. He started a comic book on his own, Cerebus, ostensibly about a barbarian aardvark, self-published it, declared it would go for 300 issues, and followed through. Along the way, he became known as one of the most talented cartoonists working, creating a massive volume of critically acclaimed work, and then things got a bit odd. At a certain point, Sim's oddly anachronistic views on women, politics, religion, and more took over. To people who came along later, Sim became a bit of a one note joke, but the story is much more interesting than than, and discounts what is a monumental acheivement in comic book creation. These days, Sim is back to self publishing the singularly enigmatic series, Glamourpuss. Since it's hard to even give adequate context in this space, I recommend you read this if you want to know more.
