COMICS TO TAKE SERIOUSLY
Dave Sim’s adult comic book hero Cerebus takes on social, political and religious issues It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s an aardvark!
As comic book heroes go, Cerebus is cut from unusual cloth. And that’s exactly the way his creator, Canadian artist and writer Dave Sim, wants to keep it.
Sim, a 36-year-old who is helping lead the growing trend toward adult-interest comics, will be in Portland on Saturday and Sunday to talk about his work and sign autographs.
