Cerebus #112/113

Cerebus the Aardvark (or simply Cerebus) is an independent comic book that was created, written and illustrated by Canadian artist Dave Sim, with backgrounds by fellow Canadian Gerhard, and self-published through Aardvark-Vanaheim.

Now complete, the story about the namesake anthropomorphic aardvark marks the longest-running independent comic ever published and one of the longest sustained narratives in literature.[1]

Publishing history[edit]

Sim began the series in 1977 as a parody of Conan the Barbarian, and moved onto other topics, such as politics, religion, gender relations and creator’s rights over the course of 300 issues until March 2004, when Cerebus was finally "dead".[2] Sim considers his body of work on Cerebus to be a single, 6000-page graphic novel.[3]
