From Dave Sim:
“HIGH SOCIETY AUDIO DIGITAL, the graphic novel project that raised $63,000 on Kickstarter in June to finance its conversion to A/D (Audio Digital) format is almost here. Graphic novelist Dave Sim brings his classic best-selling black and white 1982 graphic novel (FIVE STARS in most graphic novels guides) to life reading all of the narration AND performing the voices of his entire cast of dozens of characters. All 500 pages have been digitally remastered from the original artwork, original negatives and reconstructions (the original negatives for 130 pages were destroyed in an apartment fire in August). The first 20-page installment is a FREE download starting October 10 at www.cerebusdownloads.com

From Myself: I absolutely love Cerebus. I discovered this comic a couple decades ago when I was living in Florida. It was a pretty screwed up time in my life and it came upon me one afternoon at a sports card shop that had a rack of comics in it. Something at the time just told me to read it. It was issue #154. I quickly realized I was getting involved in something I needed to know more about in order to fully digest it’s concepts. It then became one of my favorite books to read and it stayed with me through the final issue #300, which I sold in my own comic shop years later.
