Overview

Dave Sim, creator of Cerebus the Aardvark, is one of the most controversial personalities in comics – get a front row seat as we collect the personal correspondence of Dave Sim's Last Girlfriend.

No figure in comics has been as polarizing as Dave Sim. His long-running series, Cerebus the Aardvark, is seen as one of the singular accomplishments in the history of the form. He has been a champion of self-publishing and of creator rights. But his unorthodox world views on religion and feminism, oft-espoused within the pages of his comics, are seen as regressive by many and have alienated a large swath of his audience. In these pages, you’ll see direct reproductions of the faxes and letters exchanged between Dave and his last and final girlfriend. From the sweet, tender moments to the painful throes of breaking up, these unfiltered, unedited letters will give you a seat on the roller coaster this couple rode right off the tracks.

Meet the Author

A pioneer of self-published comics and creators' rights, Dave Sim is best known as the creator of Cerebus the Aardvark, a comic book published from 1977 to 2004, which chronicles its main character in a 6,000-page self-contained story. Sim’s epic is highly regarded for the scope of its achievement but also maligned by some for its views on religion and feminism. Upon his break-up with his last girlfriend, Susan Alston, Sim converted to his own amalgam of Western religions and swore off women forever. Susan Alston is a champion in the protection of comic creators and retailers. She was previously the Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. During this time, she was in a long-distance relationship with Dave Sim. Susan’s work has been instrumental in changing public perception of comics as an art form.
