CEREBUS (Cerebus: Volume 1) - Remastered by Dave Sim 555 Pages Published by Aardvark-Vanaheim Includes both PDF and CBZ formats Collecting the first 25 issues of the award-winning comic book, this volume introduces readers to Cerebus the Aardvark, the best sword in Estarcion. Follow the adventures of our hero as he battles wizards, demons and his own greed. Featuring many of the characters who populate the rest of the story, this volume has been praised for its humour and storytelling innovations. Cerebus has been widely recognized as one of the most original, creative and intelligent comic books in the history of the medium. (Features extensive notes on the digital restoration undertaken to make this the best edition of Cerebus ever published.) ____________________ ALAN MOORE (WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA): "Cerebus, as if I need to say so, is still to comic books what Hydrogen is to the Periodic Table." BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH (CONAN): "Dave Sim has created a totally believable scenario and peopled it perfectly; The mark of a very fine story-teller. In my opinion, the best in the field today." NEIL GAIMAN (SANDMAN, STARDUST, CORALINE): "I think he's a brilliant cartoonist, a spot-on caricaturist, an excellent letterer and a very fine writer-of-comics... easily the best parody of Sandman anyone's ever done, as various members of the Cerebus cast of characters become Snuff, Swoon and the rest of the Clueless. It was wickedly funny, and had the author of Sandman curling his toes when he read it." BILL SIENKIEWICZ (STRAY TOASTERS): "I think Cerebus is one of the greatest accomplishments in comics, not only as a work of art, but as a commitment to a vision." JERRY SIEGEL (SUPERMAN): "It's A.R.T., that's what it is! So keep doing your thing in your own unique way. Never mind the off-stage murmurings. Slave away at your drawing desk, you and Gerhard. Tell it all... love, hate, joy, sorrows, comedy. And don't make so many public appearances... your drawing board misses you." MARK MILLAR (WANTED, KICK-ASS): "I think of Dave Sim existing in a pantheon of God-like creators with Moore, Miller, etc, and too busy with his own ideas to register that mere mortals like myself even EXIST." J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI (BABYLON 5): "He won over the publishing schedules, detractors, critics, people who said it couldn't be done, people who said it shouldn't be done, people who saw misogyny where there was only commentary, who saw indulgence where there was determination, who saw creative control as egocentrism, who saw an individual voice at work and declared it conceit... Year after year, month after (more or less) month, Cerebus made me laugh and think and kept me sane. And it showed me something very important: that you could tell one long story over a period of years, across hundreds of issues, and not only could readers follow it, the subtleties and nuances layered on over the course of those years would add a breathtaking degree of subtext and context to everything that happened." KEVIN EASTMAN (TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES): "Cerebus is a book that I believe every comics fan should read at least once." EDDIE CAMPBELL (FROM HELL, ALEC, BACCHUS): "...I think he's done books which are among the best books of the graphic novel years. I think Jaka's Story is a wonderful book. It was the actually the first Cerebus book that I read from beginning to end, and I didn't feel that I needed to know anything that went before it, I was happy..." BILL WILLINGHAM (FABLES): "Cerebus is one of the top five most important works in funnybook history, and by setting the number at five, I suspect I'm being quite charitable to at least three entries in any given list. Try to imagine what our comic industry today might be like had Cerebus never existed and you'd have to envision an uncrossable wasteland, lacking hundreds of key oasis's inspired and nurtured by this one monumental work."
