Description of Book / Series:
When we first meet Cerebus–a small, gray, and chronically ill-tempered aardvark–he is making his living as a barbarian. In 1977, when the Cerebus comic book series began, Sim initially conceived of it as a parody of such popular series as Conan, Red Sonja, and Elric but quickly mined that material and transformed the scope of the series into much more. Even by the end of this volume, the Cerebus story begins to transform beyond “funny animal” humor into something much more complex and interesting.
