Hi, Damian! Yes. No question about it. I think it's particularly true for CEREBUS fans because so much of the book was ALWAYS in the distant future. And then the not-too-distant future. When this one came out there was still 8 years to go -- but 18 years accomplished.

I don't know of too many people who thought "Someday, this is going to seem like a LONG time ago."

Some day -- around 2100 -- the last CEREBUS fan who read issue 300 when it came out will die.

And the award for "Most Feel Good Sentence - board posting" goes to Dave Sim, for "Some day -- around 2100 -- the last CEREBUS fan who read issue 300 when it came out will die."

Congratulations, Dave!

No harm meant to the rest of you, but I hope it's me!

Let's see, I was...24, 4 months shy of turning 25 when 300 came out. I know I got to the comic store the day that issue came out.

I would be 120 when it changes to 2100. Methinks 2100 is a bit optimistic for the last of us to survive until, but one never knows, huh?
