Cerebus Cover Art Treasury

Cerebus Cover Art Treasury
by Dave Sim & Gerhard
IDW Publishing, $75.00

Dave Sim is one of the most important cartoonists in comics history. His groundbreaking Cerebus ran for 300 issues, each written and drawn by Sim - a monumental achievement! Now, through IDW Publishing, Sim's beautiful covers are reproduced in an archival over-sized hardcover, and many of the illustrations have been scanned from Sim's personal collection of his original art. Also collected are roughs, color guides, sketches, and other historical images that chronicle this very important artist's creative process. 

In Shops: 26 October 2016

Wowzers! I've been wating for this one for a loooong time. I can hardly believe it's coming out! It is coming out right? I'm not dreaming? I might be.... Haven't been getting enough sleep lately.... Somebody pinch me.

It's finally coming out? Sweet! I pre-ordered like 1.5 years ago and thanks to Amazon's policy of charging you the lowest price that it's been since the pre-order, I'm paying something like $35 for it.

For my fellow Canadians, Indigo.ca has the book for $65 with free shipping.

Here's the link:

Very exited!

Wake me on October 27th and tell me it arrived. Until then, I'll believe it when I see it.

Glen -- Thank so much for that link! I have just pre-ordered the book from Chapters (aka Indigo.ca) for that listed price. Meanwhile, I noticed that it is also available from Amazon.ca's secondary market... for CDN $137.83!

Gary Boyarski! MANY VERY BELATED THANKS for JACK GRIMM #2!! It's still sitting bagged and boarded next to my reading chair so I can read it again when #3 comes in.

Uh...how LONG AM I GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT FOR #3? HUH, GARY? Seems like a loooonngggg time already. Is #3 done?

Sorry, couldn't resist. Seriously, congratulations on the improvement over #1.

Jeff - Actually, I'm thinking of sleeping until the third week in November when the next Diamond cheque is due. You can't spend money when you're asleep, right? Oh, wait. That won't work.

Nice of IDW to mention Gerhard in the credit line. Would have been nicer if they had mentioned him in the body of the text.

I mustn't kick. No "controversial", no "m-word".

TimW is standing by with my "23 final corrections" posting. We'll see how many of the corrections actually got done. October 26. Possibly. :)

Dave Sim said...

Chris Ryall - Not sure if he'll see this, but: I did get your fax and answered it with a letter which you should be getting soon. Thanks! Any chance of anyone from IDW posting here when the book does arrive in the stores?

Dave Sim said...

Anthony Kucher! Sorry you "very exited". I just "very arrived". As Robin Williams said, "Be here now or get there later!"

I just bought mine today, in a comic-shop, in Paris, France. It's beautiful.
