In good news for art collectors, mononymous illustrator Gerhard has created a some brand new images that he's offering for sale as handsome limited edition prints. Based mainly on scenes from his and Dave Sim's acclaimed and uncommonly beautiful work on Cerebus, the selection demonstrates Gerhard's unique contribution of ornate, intricately detailed and immersive background "sets" and environments to Sim's at times controversial opus about the life and times of an anthropomorphic aardvark.
The prints are available separately and limited to 75-100 copies each and signed by the artist as well as Sim (where applicable), but the hardcore Cerebus fans may wish to avail themselves of the hand-colored editions, limited to just 25 copies each.
Based on the life (and obviously death) of the famous Flash Gordon creator, The Strange Death of Alex Raymond is a work that began in the pages of Dave Sim's self-published series glamourpuss as what the cartoonist has described as "a metaphysical history of comics photorealism." It once seemed like the ambitious project would not be completed due to audience attrition, but Strange Death has found a home with IDW Publishing, where it will be "remastered, redrawn and reworked" before being released as an 18-issue series.
Since his quirky, moving, and massive Bottomless Belly Button made every person in the world's best books of 2008 list, cartoonist Dash Shaw has turned his attention to shorter forms and new media. The long-running webcomic Bodyworld, the short story collection The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century AD, and the IFC animated shorts of the same name have all been marked successes, but many readers, myself included, wondered how long it would be before Shaw cycled back around to a new original graphic novel.
New School, the artist’s first long-form OGN in five years, is now available from Fantagraphics Books, and it answers our wonder with its own. A hardbound, 340-page story of brotherhood, prophecy, and theme parks, New School is surreal, emotional, and delirious with color.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we've created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it's new, some of it's old, some of it's created by working professionals, some of it's created by future stars, some of it's created by talented fans, and some of it's endearingly silly. All of it's awesome.
Sometimes controversial and always innovativeCerebus creator Dave Sim has made 10 pages of his classic High Society graphic novel available fromHeritage Auctions. The selection of pages were made by HA Consignment Director Lon Allen from Sim's complete collection of original High Society art
I like Kickstarter a lot. It's an efficient way to directly connect with artists while also making sure that a project that interests you gets funded. There are still a few hitches that need to be worked out,
Originally serialized between 1981 and 1983 and in print as a 500-page graphic novel since 1986, High Society finds Cerebus the Aardvark walking through the front doors of the Regency Hotel in the fictional city-state of Iest, setting off a chain reaction that will see the brutish and greedy "earth pig-born" ascend to the highest political office in the land. Earlier this year cartoonist Dave Sim rai
Following Dave Sim's announcement of a "Doomsday Scenario" departure from comics, Fantagraphics publisher Kim Thompson made a public offer to repackage Sim's classic Cerebus series in a "more bookstore-friendly format" to bring the work to a whole new audience. Perhaps appropriately, Sim also responded publicly - and suggested that the entire thing remain open to everyone.Sim's Doomsday Scenario was outlined i
In an editorial published in the latest and final issue of glamourpuss, cartoonist Dave Sim identifies low sales of the self-published series -- just about 2,400 copies in the direct market (comic book stores) -- as the "end point" in his decades-long comics career. The politically controversial but eminently talented creator and self-publisher of Cerebus, Sim described what he called a "doomsday scenario" by which he would begin selling off
