      There are few comic books out there that have the mystique of Cerebus. In fact, no other comic book really can. It is the longest running series ever in history to have the same writer/artist throughout, and is certainly one of the most famous independent comic books in the history of comic books. There have also been quite a few scandals about the book, mostly revolving around its creator’s (Dave Sim’s) views about women.

      I have never really


      read much of Cerebus, however, until recently. I started, logically enough, with the first of the collected volumes, simply entitled Cerebus. I was not at all disappointed by the book, I have to say. Although the book is best known for some later changes, the humor and spirit of Cerebus are on full display here in the very first issues of Cerebus. It is incredibly funny, and while the art may take a while for ...

      • Sim to catch his stride (the earliest issues are a bit on the poor side), by the end of the book he knows exactly what he is doing and some of the art is truly quite impressive.

        For any fan of humor and comic books, there are many worse things to choose out there than Cerebus. This is satire done right, satirizing just about anything Dave Sim can think of, most importantly his chosen medium: comic books. Dave Sim

        understands comic books and comic book characters in a way few others do, and knows how to get right to the heart of the matter. It is notable that two of his most popular characters early on are in fact parodies of other popular characters of the day, but Sim changes them and takes control of them so well that they truly become his own. This is a great book, and one that I highly recommend to any comic book fan.
