Following Cerebus

    (Win-Mill, 2004-2007, 2011)

Not so much a comic as a fanzine devoted to Dave Sim’s anthropomorphic aardvark. Sim’s record–setting 300–issue stint writing and drawing (with background and inking assists from Gerhard) will probably remain unbroken for the rest of the 21st century, but even if it doesn’t, it will keep its loyal fanbase. Following Cerebus picks up the tasking of further exploring and explaining the symbolism in Sim’s magnum opus, backed up on the many more personal and esoteric levels by interviews with the creators themselves. Critical reviews, analyses and cartoons fill out the rest of the title, with decades’ worth of material to cover, making it a long–distance race between content and audience. But it’s a test of ground, not endurance, for the Cerebus believer.
