    May 27, 2010 9:42 pm I don't know if this is off topic, but it made me think of it, anyway.  A quote from Dave Sim's Address to the Diamond Seminar, June 14, 1992:  "I'm always amazed at the number of retailers who ask me, "When's the Cerebus film coming out?" as if this would be a good thing for the comic book environment.  If I sold the film rights to Cerebus and the merchandising rights to Cerebus, the same thing would happen to Cerebus that happened to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Some that was created in the comic book environment, for the comic book environment would be taken over by Hollywood and the large chain department stores.  It would become a one or two year fad and you would see virtually none of the profits.  Anything that Cerebus was on or in could be sold much more cheaply a few blocks from your store.  I'd make a few million dollars that I don't need and I'd have to live for the rest of my life with parents coming up to me and saying " You created Cerebus? The purple one with the white hair who eats pastrami sandwiches and ways "Hey, Hey, Dude" all the time? My kids love that show."
    May 24, 2010 6:59 pm Are they going to intersperse the stories like in the weekly comic, or group them all together?
    March 6, 2010 12:59 pm @rjspring:  I believe the original page count was erroneous.  Marvel has corrected it, but it happened after the solicitation already went out.  I'm not sure why Marvel continues to have problems with simple math.  Clearly, if it is 19 issues, it cannot be less than 400 pages.
    December 23, 2009 11:40 pm @conor:  Yeah, I understand the concept, but the vertigo jump from first trade to second seems a lot less severe than what Boom is doing.  Also, unless Anchor is like the second coming or something, there is no way I will pay $16.99 for the second trade when it comes out.  That price point just doesn't make any sense to me from a consumer standpoint.  It seems that a trade should be the same price or cheaper than the individual issues since I am committing to buying all of them at once.  Unfortunately, that is slowly changing and it frustrates me.
    December 22, 2009 2:08 pm Regardless of discounts, the trade is only a dollar more than the issues.  Whoever said the trade was supposed to save you money? Either way those days are long past.  However, seeing the future,  I'm reconsidering buying the Anchor trade for $9.99 if the second trade is going to be $16.99.

    @Conor:  I'm sure you've covered it before, but what do you do with your comics if you don't bag or board or longbox them?

    Thanks

    October 6, 2009 7:49 am @TheNextChampion:  I admit Alan Moore can definitely have a little bit of selective memory, but I believe he said this waaayyy before the movie hit.  Also, I don't mean to argue the fact that Watchmen is probably the single most influential work in comics in the last 20 years.  That seems pretty obvious.
    October 5, 2009 8:25 pm I kind of agree with Mudassir about how Watchmen isn't as influential as one would think it would be.  Alan Moore himself has said how surprised he is that nothing quite as ambitious has been attempted in comics since Watchmen.  I believe he is commenting on the unique structure and recurring imagery that is so ingrained in the work.  It definitely inspired the "grim and gritty" movement of comics, but, as Moore and Gibbons have stated, that was not really the main thrust of the work.  The plot and tone were secondary to the structure.
    August 10, 2008 10:53 am This was really good.  I'm glad I too a chance on it.  The art is very solid, and the has a lot of interesting twists and turn.  I'll definitely be picking up the next volume.
