Month in review.
Hmm. I think Guys was the worst offense of the series thus far - filled with trite and unnecessary characters and “homages” to other independent comics. (I’m sorry, this isn’t about those comics, it’s just that they did not add anything to a story that was 99% crap. Boring. Shit.)
There were elements of actual story, the bits with Cerebus becoming bartender, the drama with Bear, and the Joanne bits, but they sadly were few and far between, and the rest was just complete twaddle.
Rick’s Story is showing much promise, thus far.
(And, yes, I know Sim wrote Cerebus more for himself than anyone else. However, in a business field, you need to ensure that your product is accessible to many readers. Apparently there were enough to keep the money coming in, so good on him for that - but, once again, I would have stopped buying the comic if I had been buying it monthly.)
