According to the Strange Adventure’s twitter feed, it looks like Dave Sim will be appearing at their store on September 24, 2010:
just got off the phone (an old communication device) with Dave Sim. Mark your calendars, Dave’s coming to Halifax Friday, Sept. 24th
I’m sure as we get more details, you’ll be able to find them either on the twitter feed or at their website: http://www.strangeadventures.com/

So recently CerebusTV had on their auction section Cerebus head sketches by none other than, you guess it, Dave Sim. Since they were only $25 (!), I had to get one. I asked Dave for Cerebus as a hockey player:
A bit later, CerebusTV once again was offering Cerebus head sketches by Dave for $25 – again with shipping included – so I got a Cerebus as Nerd:
As I said, these sketches included shipping – they came in a large envelope with a couple comic book backing sleeves and Dave’s lettering on the enevelope: “Please do not bend of fold! Thanks!” And amazing enough, no bends or folds – near mint condition as the kids would say. The sketches were done on the new Aardvark-Vanaheim stationary in ball point pen. I don’t know which I like better. . .Nerdy Cerebus or Hockey playing Cerebus. . .

Last year for the SPACE, Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo, Jeff T and myself had issue #14 of CEREBUS THE NEWSLETTER printed and for sale. It was the first issue from the new Friends of Cerebus, but we kept the numbering from the previous incarnation, which ended with #13 back in 1985. We just managed to get issue #17 to the printers in time for SPACE 2010, and so we kind of did a quarterly schedule:
Though I rather have a true quarterly schedule and not a rush to get the fourth issue out. So now we have to keep moving forward and get issues #18 out. Having contributions makes it easier on us to get a new issue out – the more contributions, the more issues I can publish. I’m not making any money off of this endeavor, just doing it because I enjoy CEREBUS. So all I can offer contributors is copies of the issue that their article, essay, fan fiction, artwork, etc was published in. Though – if you’ve not gotten any of the back issues, or are missing some of the back issues – send me a contribution for publication and your snail mail addy and I’ll send you the back issues you are missing.
