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.
