So a little bit late, just a couple weeks, I sent the files on Thursday to Kinko’s online printing service to get issue #15 of the Cerebus the Newsletter published. I selected a 70 lb “offset paper” rather then the 90 lb cardstock I had used for the previous cover. I wanted a paper that would be heavier then the interior pages, but that would be too hard to fold. . .Not that the first cover was too hard to fold, it just didn’t leave a nice clean edge.
On Saturday night after seeing a movie and getting some tasty eats with a friend, I headed over to the Kinko’s store to see how the order was coming. The clerk said it was all set and pulled out 3 boxes. I opened one up and voila: correlated, stapled and folded! I looked through a copy to ensure the pages were in the correct order (thank you page #s), and yuppers: all set.
Cerebus the Newsletter #15 is now available for purchase at the Friends of Cerebus page using paypal buttons. If the paypal button gives you grief for whatever reason, feel free to paypal me the amount to the email address cerebusfangirl at cerebusfangirl dot com with a note stating issue #15 so I know that the “free” money isn’t really free.
The contents you ask? Well, what about the cover first:
An excellent job by Fink! (pencils) and David Branstetter (inks and tone). Jeff Tundis also provided not only an in depth article about Cerebus statues he did an short comic entitled “Sisters”. Rob Imes and Dave Ryan each provided a Cerebus piece of art and I contributed a review of Cerebus Archive.
The title graphic is also of mine creation, I think next time I’ll push the name of it down a bit more from the Friends of Cerebus presents bar (a direct homage to the Aardvark-Vanaheim presents bar from the covers of Cerebus). I’m also thinking of what more can we do with the Friends of Cerebus – it is a fanclub for Cerebus, at least that is what it started out as back in the early 1980s. If you’ve got any ideas, please feel free to email me.
