So, what's the legendary creator of Cerebus The Aardvark
been up to
lately? The man I once considered A Hero for his fierce, independent
creative spirit and willingness to spit in the face of the all the corporate
aspects of the industry? Who never sold out, even when George Lucas,
mighty cosmic checkbook in hand, came calling back in the day?
This, apparently. His latest project, Glamourpuss
The lesson to be learned herein is The Price To Be Paid For Your Art.
In the case of Cerebus
, bloody-mindedly writing and drawing the same
character in one continuous, meticulously planned 6000 page comic book
tale that spans over 300 issues and 27 years of your life.
That price, quite clearly, being his sanity.
You go, Dave.
