Swords Of Cerebus Part 6: Demonhorn

Swords Of Cerebus Vol 2 (1981)
Art by Dave Sim

PAUL SLADE:
Published between 1981 and 1984, Dave's six Swords Of Cerebus volumes were his first attempt to collect the book in a more permanent form. He gave each story included in these volumes a prose introduction, explaining where the book stood when he'd been working on that particular issue and how he was thinking of its prospects at the time. This is the first of the six intros from Swords volume 2.


A panel from Demonhorn:
"The poetry is lousy," says Dave. 
"The first time someone said that to my face, I felt like hitting them."

Next week: How to fudge 22 pages and get away with it.

Sim expected praise 'pon the publication of Demonhorn,
But lo, once it was in print, bub, he faced just laughter and scorn.

Something like that it seems to be
Some poetic manner of Travis-ty

I tip my hat, sir!

I really have to try that. Usually I just pay the face amount on the check and, lately, my hat has been giving me lousy service. [Nyuck nyuck nyuck]

Oy. I guess we get what we pay for here in the comments!
