Cerebus the Aardvark - Dave Sim

Read Cerebus The Aardvark For Free… Eventually

Dave Sim has always demonstrated a different approach to publishing comic books, and one that has been proven rather prescient in this age of self-publishing and diminishing creator profits. Sim has even stated that his 300-issue magnum opus Cerebus The Aardvark will go public domain after he and background artist Gerhard have passed away.

However, if you’re too tight to pay a well-deserved creator his dues, don’t reach for a loaded firearm just yet, for the entire saga is being made available on Tumbler… albeit at the rate of a page a day.

It’s a great way for new readers to get into the series, even if at it’s current rate the complete series will take twenty-five years to upload.

At present it’s on #4, which means that we’re in for a bit of a wait for the series to reach #26’s ‘High Society’ storyline,  which marked the Cerebus‘ transition from a Conan the Barbarian parody into a rich satire of politics, religion, love, comics and mortality.

For those lacking such patience, the series is also available digitally via Sim’s Cerebus Digital Book Club.

Carl Doherty has written about movies, video games, comic books and literature for almost a decade, forging ill-informed critiques for numerous websites, blogs and publications that no one has ever heard of. His debut novel, the epic fantasy comedy Welcome to The Fold, is available now on Kindle here (UK) and here (US).
